Looking for Wyoming road info ???

We are planning a summer trip out west. Would appreciate some insight into the road conditions for towing an AS on Wyoming Rt. 14 between Ranchester and Greybull traveling through the Bighorn NF. We're looking at early August time frame. Will be heading from Little Big Horn battlefield to Thermopolis so it would be a short day so not looking for any land speed records.

Thanks in advance. See ya'll on the road sometime

You won't have any problems. There is a fairly steep ascent west of Dayton, but not terrible. If you took US-14A (northern route) there is a really steep descent east of Lovell that can be tough on brakes, but that doesn't appear to be your route. I checked the WYDOT website, and there doesn't appear to be much construction planned for this summer (so far). Here's a link for the best info: Wyoming Travel Information Map

Personally, I would recommend US 16 over 14 or 14A. Just as scenic but a gentler route. Top of the fuel just as you get off I90.

Agree with n2916s, we did both last year in a MoHo, doing 90 and 16 again this year in AS

I too, prefer US-16, but that's because it's my back yard. Both routes have their merits. If using Hwy 16, I can offer courtesy parking just outside of Buffalo. Electric and water, but no sewer.

Devil's Tower NP.

Try to see Devil's Tower and the Blackhills in eastern Wyoming and S. Dakota while you are in the area. Very nice.

The Big Horns are what is called "New Mtn. and they are steep. I love 14A, but it takes some patience. I have found that I can get over with out any problem is I just take my time. "Brakes do not get too hot at slow speeds." If you do not want to take you time you may want to stay off the mtn's.

Thanks all for the input. I've been through the mountains many times pulling my AS and I do take my time. This will be a short day for us so like an old bumper sticker said once
" I may be slow but I'm ahead of you". Still muddling over some route options so we'll see when the time comes. We have some flexibility here.

ThankX all.
