Don't miss this ride as US14 from Greybull, WY to Ranchester, WY is one of the best mountain rides in the western USA. The uphill side follows beautiful Shell Creek and is highlighted by Shell Falls. The downhill (eastern) side of the Bighorns is especially awesome as you can see for hundreds (?) of miles across the Wyoming prairies on a clear day. Watch for the roadside signs which indicate the geologic era of the rocks as you descend the face of the mountains. The road is generally in excellent condition with many twisty sections.

A beautiful ride if you are heading to Yellowstone Park, easy ride from the Sheridan, Wy. to the Lovell Wy and then ride Chief Joseph Highway to Cooke City Mt. So many different ways to go All the mountain roads are so much fun to ride and a great place to meet other bikers.

we took this ride labor day weekend. great ride up from the east side and tricky going down the west side, seems they filled the cracks with the rubbery stuff that makes the bike feel wiggaly. it could have been a great ride down but I took it slow! a lot of view points and waterfalls/streams. Very good ride, but take it slow going down

I live in Dayton, just below where this ride is beautiful compared to a lot of mountain riding. roads have all just been resurfaced. Past Burgess junction is a turn called "Sand Turn" on most spring through fall days you can pull off to watch ah gliders take flight. Lots of wildlife along the way....not to mention rustic lodges that serve excellent food and cold beer.

We did that exact ride last summer on our way to SD and back to Seattle. The scenery is spectacular. As I remember there are a couple of wonderful canyons along the route, just great for some easy twisties. I would highly recommend taking the trip if you are in the area. The traffic was very light and lots of places to stop and take in the sights. We went through in early August 07.

Nice call
