What are the best scenic drives in Wyoming?


There are numerous scenic byways in Wyoming if you want to take your time while taking in some of the most beautiful views in the state. Here are a few of the best scenic drives in Wyoming to add to your bucket list:

  • Pilot Butte Wild Horse Scenic Tour: This drive is a little rough because you'll be traveling on dirt roads, but the wildlife potential of this trip is fantastic. There is a high probability you'll discover pronghorn sheep, elk, rabbits, deer, hawks, coyotes, sage-grouse, and eagles. Oh, and of course, the main attraction — wild horses! Begin your drive in either Green River or Rock Springs.
  • Buffalo Bill Cody Scenic Byway: Hop in your car a little west of Cody, WY near the Shoshone National Forest. You'll follow the North Fork of the Shoshone River through the Wapiti Valley and end up at the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. This 27-mile scenic byway will treat you to towering rock faces, deep caverns, and a few historic dude ranches.
  • Chief Joseph Scenic Byway: Chief Joseph was Chief of the Nez Perce Indian tribe in the back half of the 19th century. This epic drive that links Cody with the Beartooth Highway and Yellowstone National Park was named in his honor because it was the route he led his people out of Yellowstone and into Montana in 1877 while fleeing the US Cavalry. As you glide around each beautiful turn, you can imagine what it was like before any roads cut through these hills.
