America's Scenic Byways

Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway

34 miles -

From the southern entrance in the town of Shoshoni to just north of Thermopolis, the Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway offers 34 miles of fascinating Wyoming geology, history, and recreation.

Take the byway between the ancient rock cliffs of Wind River Canyon--the same path once used by Native Americans, explorers, and pioneers. Continue through the Wind River Indian Reservation, keeping an eye out for bighorn sheep. Enjoy fishing and rafting opportunities just off the byway on Wind River, which becomes the Bighorn River, and finish your journey by enjoying a soak at the world's largest mineral hot springs at Hot Springs National Park.
