We recently rode through the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming. There are two main highways, US 14 in the north and US 16 in the south. Both were nice rides but we thought the northern route to be best. It was typical mountain riding with switch backs, tight curves and sharp drop offs from the side of the road. We... More

Loved the Big Horns! So beautiful and peaceful with few other visitors/tourists. Great views and we found some fantastic places to hike, fly fish and do some relaxing. Limited cell service.

It is a former fire lookout tower. You can actually climb onto the tower and views are incredible. It was VERY windy up there, just have... More

I absolutely love the Big Horns! It has it all; beautiful scenery and wildlife, but best of all...few visitors. There are plenty of affordable lodging or camping options and the recreational opportunities are endless. I can't wait to go back.

We traveled from Buffalo, WY on 14A to Lovell on our way to Montana. Nice to be off the interstate. Hairy at times! But, all in all very interesting and worth the drive.

This is an amazing park with stunning scenery. There is abundant wildlife and natural beauty. However, there is very little "civilization"!

we drove over the mountains on our trip to Yellowstone and were fortunate to find some hand-gliders out on that beautiful day. Some may look at the mountains as an obstacle they must pass over, but that day we were able to see how others use their majestic height to explore the skies over Sheridan. I admired their bravery as... More

Camped in the southern part of park along 16. First couple of nights in the high elevations and the third in the Ten Sleep area. Two completly different terrains and you need to visit both areas to understand the beauty of the park. Ten Sleep area is where all the climbers go so it's kind of hippy like. If youre... More
