All reviews beautiful waterfall nice surprise the big horn mountains nice stop forest service visitor center pretty waterfall closed for renovations yellowstone national park beautiful place to stop rest stop photo ops interesting information views of the mountains beautiful drive mountain range rock formations
This is a nice stop between Sheridan and Cody, WY. We were there in late September and the visitor’s center was closed but you can still walk to the falls. Please note—don’t use the Trip Advisor map. The falls are west of Sheridan by 1.5...More
We happened upon this gem while driving to Sheridan WY. Although the road itself wasn't the best (construction/repairs limiting travel to one lane in areas & also bumpy!), the scenery along the way was very nice. Near the top of the grade was this Forest...More
This appears to be a fairly new park with a small visitor's center and paved trails. It's a bit of a drive but (we came from Sheridan) the scenery is enjoyable on the way although there is lots of road construction going on and driving...More
Shell River is named for the mysterious sea shells found in this area by pioneers. How can there be shells with no sea to see? When the river comes to an abrupt chasm, gravity is non-negotiable. The result is a waterfall. In this case, a...More

Try using GPS, or even search the Web by entering the following description: SHELL FALLS INTERPRETIVE CENTER. The Web indicates: From Shell, Wyoming, take Highway 14 east approximately 11 miles. It's about a mile west of state road 264. There's a paved pull-off and limited parking, that accommodates mega tourist buses and RV trailers. When I was there in June, restrooms were under reconstruction and only Porta Potties were available. I hope you can find this incredible site, well worth the visit.
From Sheridan to Cody and on to Yellowstone (1 Replies)
I'd like oppinions on which is the best route, Route 14 through Greybull or Route 14A through Lovell to Cody. I have been told Shell Falls is spectacular but also the Medicine Wheel Nat'l Historic Landmark is a must see. Which route offers the most scenery, all told?

14A is not as much of the canyon experience as 14. Shell Canyon is very scenic (as is its twin Ten Sleep Canyon on 16). 14A has some nice vistas on the west side just before it drops down and is a little more of the twisty curvey cliff edge type driving where as 14 in the canyon is mostly broad curves back and forth as is descends with a few broad switch back places. The red rocks inthe canyon contrast nicely with the evergreen tree/shrubs. The drive to the Medicine Wheel has some great views...More
Yellowstone to Rapid City (8 Replies)
Arriving in West Yellowstone 9/13 early afternoon. Plan to do the lower loop 9/14 and the upper loop 9/15, proceeding to Jackson for 2 nights. Then to Cody for 1 night, Sheridan for 1 night, then to Keystone for 2 nights, then home from Rapid City on 9/21. 1. I know it's been recommended to spend more time doing Yellowstone, but this is what we have. Will we be able to see the major attractions taking 1 day for each loop? 2. How long will it take from Jackson to Cody (back up through...More

1) Yes, you can do each loop in a day. There's not that much mileage, just many places to stop along the way. 2) Inside the park, I believe the speed limit is 35 mph, so don't expect to get anywhere quickly. Probably about 4 hours from Jackson to Cody going through the park. 5) The leaves tend to change pretty early in Yellowstone. You're probably looking at last week of September/first week of October. 6) You can see Crazy Horse from the road.

Drive from Cody to Deadwood (1 Replies)
We stayed in Cody for 2 nights in August as part of a 3 week road trip and from there we took the 14 up through the Bighorn Mountains via Shell and Sheridan. We had planned to stop at the Shell Falls as we passed through but they where closed which was disappointing but for all it was raining for part of that day it didn't spoil some of the amazing scenery that we passed through. We stopped for a quick lunch at Buffalo then took the 90 towards Moorcroft at which point we decided to turn off...More

Shame about Shell Falls. I have that on the list of things to see on our next road trip out in those parts.
