Capper5016 - I don't know why you deleted this. This is good info. Thanks for sharing. I'm on vacation and don't mind driving a couple hours out of the way. I'm flexible with where I am going. Besides, I may go through Yellowstone on my way back home. So I could hit these trails then. Let me know if you have any additional info.

If you dont mind driving an hour or two north, just outside the Northeast Gate at Yellowstone there are some absolutely beautiful trails. I just spent a week exploring them and highly recommend it if you are looking for spectacular scenery.
Just past the Top Of The World General Store there is a dirt road that goes to the SE, it splits with one road going to Sawtooth Lake and the other going to Panfan Lake, but bring bear spray because there are grizzlies and wolves all over the place. Just to the Sw of that is Lulu Pass, which heads north up the mountains, it gets a little hairy in places, but the view is incredible......make sure you bring a fishing pole because those lakes are full of incredible trout.

If you drive through Yellowstone, make sure you drive up to the NW area (Mammoth Hot Springs) then across the Lamar Valley over to the NE Entrance....thats the best area for wildlife viewing and where you will find the buffalo, grizzlies, and wolves. The pics at the bottom are from a grizzly/wolf dustup I caught in that area last summer (I go every year).
Not sure when you are going, or if you are already there, but I have a map I can mark up and send you if you'd like.

This trail looks about perfect for what I like to do on vacation. Not too hard, but still interesting. I'll send you a PM with my email address. I'd love to see a copy of your marked maps. I'm leaving in about 1 week from tomorrow.

That encounter with the bear and coyote must have been fun to watch!

In heading this way in August from Michigan. Thanks for good info. Anymore detail on maps/directions? I'm a bit of a newbie to the jeep world.

If you guys are wanting to run the Big Horn Mtm. trails, like the do with Jeep Jamboree I would be interested in going along. I know the trails start just north of Casper in Dayton Wyoming and it's a great day trail. I've been wanting to run it, but I won't do the Jeep jamboree thing ($500 for 2 people for about a day wheeling and a cook-out dinner, no thanks, that's mod money )

Anyway, I live south of Casper and know some decent trails down here off of I-80 as well, Labor day we'll be in Moab for the annual Labor Day get together, other than that we're free.

Thanks for posting. I never knew there were any trails in the Big Horn Mountains. I've never been there. They are such a small range on the map I figured there was nothing there to see. I may have to check that out some time.
