General Information

Description - This beautiful state currently offers one All-American Road, the Beartooth Scenic Byway, and a multitude of state, National Forest and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) designated byways.

The Beartooth Highway is one of the most spectacular National Forest routes on this continent. To many, it is known as "the most beautiful highway in America." From its beginning at the border of the Custer National Forest to its terminus near the northeast entrance to Yellowstone National Park, the Beartooth Highway (U.S. 212) offers travelers the ultimate high-country experience as it travels through the Custer, Shoshone, and Gallatin National Forests. Wyoming's other byways traverse the remote mountains, forests, gorges and high-deserts of the state.

Recreation - Byways provide access to numerous cultural, historical, natural, recreational and scenic sites. Some of the most popular activities along the byways include hiking, camping, picnicking, biking, fishing, photographing scenery, viewing historic sites and of course scenic driving.

Climate - The climate in Wyoming changes with the topography. Generally the western mountains and basins receive large amounts of precipitation and create a rain shadow for eastern Wyoming. Most of the precipitation occurs during the winter months and falls in the form of snow. Temperatures are cooler in this region than the eastern part of the state, because of the generally higher elevation.

The eastern and lower elevations of Wyoming have been known for the constant wind that blows from west to east. During the winter this may be a Chinook, which warms the region. Temperatures in eastern Wyoming can be extreme. Summer days may reach 100 degrees F cooling quickly after sunset. Winter temperature lows can reach below zero with the wind adding to the intensity.

Location - Byways travel through scenic and historic areas throughout the state.
