This drive is gorgeous!! Ten Sleep Canyon was incredible with the beautiful layers of rock! We saw several groups of climbers, and were able to pull off the road in many areas for pictures and to read the scenic information. Highly recommend!

A drive through the Bighorn National Forest is not to be missed! This is one of the most beautiful mountain areas we've ever visited, and the drive rivals California's famous Highway 1 on the Central Coast. We drove from Buffalo to Ten Sleep (check out...More

This is a scenic route and also a safer route for heading over the mountains to Yellowstone. Take a picnic lunch with you and stop off at Meadowlark Lake. The canyon down the west side is beautiful.

Spectacular views! One of the best drivers anywhere. We drove from Buffalo to Ten Sleep. On the way back went down Crazy Woman Canyon. Not to be missed! Single lane dirt road. Not for trailers or motor homes. Highlight of the trip!

We drove highway 16 pulling a 5th wheel camper. It was a beautiful drive with lots of animal sightings. Wouldn't recommend pulling a camper over it unless you have a good strong pickup.

We took this road from Yellowstone and it was great until we got between Tensleep and Buffalo. Wow, very steep so had to come down VERY slowly so we would not heat up our brakes. We got up to 9666 feet elevation. Glad we did...More

This is a nice easy drive that is a bit steep (8% grades in places) on the east side of the pass but not so bad on the west side. There are several turnouts so you can stop and take photos.

Travelling across the USA in an RV we stopped in Buffalo for lunch and proceeded through the wonderful twists and turns tanking in the sweeping views while heading towards Devils Tower. Love the diverse landscape of the US

Either way is beautiful. If you are driving a motor home I think they say that the route from Buffalo is better but in a car either is fine. Sheridan is a bigger town so if you need a Walmart or big grocery store stop you... More
