Both highway 14 and 16 are gorgeous! There are so many lakes and trails to choose from, you can’t go wrong with either drive. Tensleep Canyon is phenomenal to drive through (highway 16) and She’ll Canyon is gorgeous as well (highway 14). Tensleep is a great little stop with a great restaurant, Tensleep Saloon and a fun brewery just beyond. Look for moose, eagles, elk, pronghorn and deer. I’ve never seen a bear but lots of markings. I saw a wolf one winter evening near Powder River Pass. Best of all, NO CROWDS!

Our trip through Bighorn National Forest was a rare occasion where plans getting spoiled were a blessing in disguise. We were passing through on a long road trip and picked out a hike near Ten Sleep Lake. However, a cold front with little snow showers hit the area. Luckily, the roads were still open—and we’re not intimidated by snowy roads—so we happily drove through. The fresh snowfall made the landscape breathtaking, about as close to “magical” as a forest can get. We made it to Ten Sleep Lake, but skipped the hike as we didn’t have the right clothes for the cold temperatures or snowy path. We still got out and enjoyed the snow for a little bit. Really hope to get back here someday and explore more.

We were here on 09-08-20. We were staying in Cody WY, East Entrance to Yellowstone was closed due to snow, so we decided to go to Bighorn . There was 6 to 8 inches of snow on ground and in trees, very Beautiful. Roads were clear of snow. We encountered Thousands of Sheep on road being moved by 1 Cowboy on Horse and 2 Sheep Dogs, did not know how we were going to get thur Sheep, A Sheep Dog got on each side of car, as we drove very slowly the Sheep parted and let us thur, amazing Dogs. We stopped at Shell Falls, a high volume beautiful Waterfall, saw a field full of Pronghorns on way back to Cody.

If you're in the area it's a nice mountain range to visit. But compared to the Black Hills to the east or Yellowstone to the west, they don't have a ton to offer. It's a nice place to visit if you don't want to be around anyone. However, there are better places to visit for sightseeing and family adventures.
