Bighorn Scenic Byway
Crest the Bighorn Mountains
This 47-mile Scenic Byway begins just outside of Sheridan, traveling over the mountain crest to Greybull. Visitors rave about the mountain switchbacks, amazing views, spectacular canyons and waterfalls, saying “take this drive, even if it means going out of your way.” The official boundary of the byway 6.5 miles west of Dayton is marked with a scenic overlook with spectacular views and Fallen City, a field of Madison limestone blocks that toppled onto the rocks below. After Burgess Junction, where US 14 splits from US14A, you reach 9,033 feet atop Granite Pass. A bit further on, Shell Falls dives 120 feet into the gorge below, followed by nearby Shell Canyon, filled with sharp, twisting corners, drop-offs and gorgeous rock formations. Plan to take the drive slowly and enjoy every bit of the unfolding scenery along the way.
