DiscoverScenic Drives

Sheridan and the Bighorn Mountains come to life when experienced on a scenic drive or epic road trip.

Bighorn Scenic Byway

Follows US Highway 14 through Ranchester and Dayton north of Sheridan, includes spectacular views such as Fallen City (a field of Madison Formation limestone blocks), along with campgrounds, picnic areas and opportunities for fishing in Sibley Lake, Prune Creek and Little Tongue River.

At Burgess Junction, the Bighorn Scenic Byway offers a choice: You can connect with U.S. Highway 14A, the Medicine Wheel Passage, or continue on U.S. 14 to Shell Falls and the higher elevations west, where you may get summer glimpses of magpies, Rocky Mountain bluebirds, and mourning doves among the juniper and sagebrush. Mountain lions live in Shell Canyon but are seldom seen. U.S. Forest Service personnel say those with sharp eyes may spot coyotes and bobcats.
