South Big Horn/Red Wall Scenic Backway
Length: 101.0 mi / 162.5 km
Time to Allow: Allow at least 4 hours.
Restrictions: Portions of this byway may require a high-clearance type vehicle.
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 its pioneer history, admire the rocky Red Wall, and come away with a newfound respect for Wyoming's peaceful solitude.
In addition to sites such as the Graves Spring and Buffalo Creek Campgrounds, the Powder River, Buffalo Creek, and the Arminto/Waltman area, the byway also offers access to connecting roads leading to still more exciting places including Hell's Half Acre, the Bighorn National Forest, Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park, Seminoe to Alcova Back Country Byway, and the Oregon Trail.
If your love for the outdoors is coupled with a desire for a ride on the open range, head to Wyoming for a trip on the Big Horn/Red Wall Back Country Byway. You’ll traverse antelope-dotted prairies northwest of Casper, journey up into the Big Horn Mountains, and return to the prairie when you take the approximately 100-mile, mostly gravel byway.
