The mountains and valleys are beautiful. The snow melt is high this time of year. Snow on the mountains gives a good contrast. Views on the sunshiny day were wonderful.

There are no words to describe the beauty of this place. Exceptional beauty. Vistas stretch on as far as the eye can see. Already looking forward to a return trip. When you go, be sure to take your camera and prepare to be astounded!

We rented 4 wheelers to explore the mountains. This was a great way to see the scenery. We came up on a hidden cabin that was really scenic.

Camping, fishing, biking, hiking, a mountain recreation paradise. Great place to stop and stay going to or coming from Yellowstone Park.

I drove through Bighorn National Forest from Dayton to Shell on US 14. The drive is amazing and there are many locations for hiking and camping. I definitely recommend stopping at the Sibley Lake picnic area, as well as the Shell Creek Rest Stop.

Beautiful drive, need 4-wheel drive for the area we went to. Very peaceful and quiet. Drive slowly, yield to uphill traffic, and pack some snacks. Don't forget the sunscreen! Park Reservoir fishing is very relaxing and usually not too packed, unless it's a holiday weekend...then...More

This drive is not for those who have issues with very tight turns or for those afraid of heights. It is a beautiful drive and worth the time it took to get over and through it. We experienced temps in the 50s'/60s at the bottom...More

Doing a cross country trip - will be passing through Bighorn, just wondering which route has the better scenery the northern trek through Rt. 14 or the southerly route using Rt. 16? The goal for that day is to get from Cody to Spearfish, SD

I am moving cross country and will be pulling a small Uhaul. What parts of the national forest are accessible for this? I would like to make it to the Garden of the Gods. Any thoughts? Thank youM

It totally depends on how much time you have- there are hour hikes or several day hikes; you can drive the forest roads or stay on the main highway. Atv trails can go for days and still not use the same road twice. North... More
