Cloud Peak Skyway

One of Wyoming's scenic byways follows Route 16 from Fort McKinney to the town of Tensleep. The byway, known as Cloud Peak Skyway, reflecting the name of nearby wilderness land, travels through the rugged lands of the Bighorn Mountains and national forest. Heading over the top at Powder Pass (elevation 9,666 feet), the Skyway crosses the backbone of the Bighorns. Here the scenery is spectacular, and pullouts offer a chance to catch your breath and enjoy the view. Cloud Peak, the granddaddy of the Bighorn Mountains, can only be seen from this route.
