VISIT THE BIGHORN MOUNTAINS AND BIGHORN NATIONAL FOREST
Conveniently located halfway between Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park, the Bighorn Mountains are a headline attraction themselves. A Wyoming vacation all by themselves, the Bighorn Mountains oﬀer a more diverse landscape than anywhere in Wyoming — from lush grasslands to alpine meadows, from crystal-clear lakes to glacial carved valleys, from rolling hills to sheer mountain walls. If you’re lucky enough to be traveling over the Bighorns when the wildﬂowers are in bloom, it’s a sight you won’t soon forget.
There’s plenty of recreation for those visiting Wyoming too. Bighorn National Forest is home to multiple reservoirs, 32 campgrounds, 3 scenic byways, 14 picnic areas, 7 lodges, miles and miles of trout-ﬁlled streams, 189,000 acres of Wilderness, 1,500 miles of trails, and unsurpassed beauty.
