We traveled through the Big Horn Mountains along Route 14. Along the way we passed by Shell Canyon and Falls. Spectacular. Also, for anyone traveling to Yellowstone National Park, I recommend going from Sheridan, Rt. 14, to Cody, then to the Chief Joseph Highway to the northeast entrance to the park. The view from the summit of Dead Indian Pass... More

Many levels of falls at this place. So pretty with the rock formations. Would definitely recommend stopping for a look.

Good quick stop and lovely fall. Mountain pass can be intimidating if not use to that type of driving be sure to use your low gears going down.

Love this place! We try to make it here at least once a year when traveling in the Big Horn mountains. The falls are beautiful and calming. Very nice spot to relax and take in the views!

For some reason, for the past few years wen I've reached Burgess Junction heading west on 14 I've chosen 14a and not 14. Big mistake! Today I came up from Worland and took a hard right in Greybull on 14 and up we went. I'd forgotten the uniqueness of each route over the Big Horn mountains. The most recognizable of... More

I love stopping at Shell Falls on my way through the BigHorn Mountains. There are some steps, but the pathway to different areas of the falls and the river are worth the walk. The falls themselves are beautiful, and make a great background for a family picture or just by themselves. I would highly recommend a stop here to stretch... More

Such a beautiful place to stop and visit or even just stretch your legs. It is neat to see anytime but May and June are your best times to visit because that's when most of the runoff from the snow is coming down so the falls are really roaring. Sometimes even clear into July there will be a lot of... More
