From breathtaking mountain vistas through the Bighorn National Forest and along the Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway, to the awe-inspiring limestone walls of Tensleep Canyon and the vivid colors of the Painted Desert, eye-candy truly makes US Highway 16 .” The Sweet 16.” The best and easiest route to Yellowstone Park and The Black Hills because of its low grade and gentle curves in comparison to other routes over the Bighorn Mountains, The Sweet 16 offers plenty of sightseeing on the way to the small western towns of Ten Sleep and the larger Worland, Wyoming. Forests, fossils, rock-climbing, abundant wildlife, and more make The Sweet 16 appealing to those of diverse ages and interests.
