WELCOME TO BIGHORN MOUNTAIN COUNTRY
From breathtaking mountain vistas through the Big Horn National Forest and along the Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway, to the awe-inspiring limestone walls of Ten Sleep Canyon and the vivid colors of the Painted Desert, eye-candy truly makes US Highway 16 “The Sweet 16.” Called 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 sight-seeing on the way to the small western town 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.
Drive the best and safest route to Yellowstone and The Black Hills along US HWY 16 - The Sweet Sixteen.#wyomingadventures
