Autumn brings cooler temperatures, fewer crowds and glorious color. It’s a great time of year to visit Sheridan and to traverse the scenic highways of Bighorn Mountain Country. While in the area, one can enjoy fishing, hiking, camping, scenic views, exceptional wildlife viewing and spectacular fall color. The many side roads into the National Forest–allowing visitors access to the numerous lakes, hiking trails, campgrounds and other points of interest–are only accessible in fall and summer. Fly-fish on the numerous blue ribbon trout streams in the area and in the Bighorn National Forest, go horseback riding at an authentic dude ranch or visit historic and Indian battle sites of the Old West.
