Cloud Peak Skyway Scenic Byway is known for its great views into the Cloud Peak Wilderness section of the Bighorn National Forest. The thick forested area provides a vibrant habitat for wildlife, and Ten Sleep Canyon features high, steep, multi-colored walls crowned by pine and spruce trees.
Nature takes center stage along US 16 in Cloud Peak Wilderness with rocky spires and meadows that punctuate the dense evergreen forest. Pine and spruce trees climb mountainsides that are topped in frosty granite peaks. Through Ten Sleep Canyon the byway is flanked by massive rocky cliffs. The many pull-offs will surely tempt drivers to pause and enjoy the splendor.
