VISIT THE BIGHORN MOUNTAINS AND BIGHORN NATIONAL FOREST
A Wyoming Destination
Conveniently located halfway between Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park, the Bighorn Mountains are a headline attraction in Wyoming. A Wyoming vacation all by themselves, the Bighorn Mountains are a more diverse landscape than anywhere in Wyoming. The Bighorns are home to lush grasslands, alpine meadows, crystal-clear lakes, glacial carved valleys, rolling hills, and 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, and 7 lodges. The Bighorns also have miles and miles of trout-filled streams, 189,000 acres of Wilderness, 1,500 miles of trails, and unsurpassed beauty.
Visitors love the gentle slope and gradual curves along US Highway 16 compared to other routes over the Bighorn Mountains. Plentiful lodging and dining options are available along the route in Ten Sleep and Worland, Wyoming. The Bighorn Mountains and The Sweet 16 provide a great route for your travels to Yellowstone National Park or Mount Rushmore.
