Fantastic side trip from Sheridan. Hwy 14 is a fantastic drive and the highlight is Shell Falls. Worth the effort ot get out and see some of the incredible beauty in the mountains.

Beautiful views, check out the hummingbird feeders and walk the short nature trail. Don't miss going down to the platform across from the falls.

Driving from Yellowstone to Cody on Rt. 14 we literally stumbled on this beauty. Spectacular rock formation and, of course the Falls. This was a gem. If you decide to hike some of the trails, you won't be disappointed.

We traveled through the Big Horn Mountains along Route 14. Along the way we passed by Shell Canyon and Falls. Spectacular.

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!
