Tracing old livestock trails through Wyoming, the South Big Horn/Red Wall Back Country Byway will take you into an open range still used by modern ranchers. As you drive along the gravel road, consider the area’s pioneer history, admire the rock Red Wall, and come away with a newfound respect for Wyoming’s peaceful solitude.

In addition to sites such as the Graves Springs and Buffalo Creek campgrounds, access to the Middle Fork of the Powder River, Buffalo Creek, and the Arminto/Waltman area, the byway also offers access to connecting roads leading to additional exciting places, including the Big Horn National Forest.
