Leaving Fishing Bridge CG in Yellowstone and heading towards Devils Tower wondering if Routes 14 and 16 are a good way to get over to I-90 while towing a 30' trailer. If not to those of you who have traveled this area what would be the easiest driving route? Thanks.

16 is better than 14, but the descent is long, so watch your brakes. there is a dump station near the top of the pass if you need it.

We used 14 as I recall wasn't bad. Had a 35 foot 5th wheel at the time.

I agree with Texas. 16 coming across the Bighorns is a beautiful ride. It is steep in a few places and there is a couple of up hill switchbacks near the top.
14 is steep and a bit narrow and more crooked.

The road coming east out of Cody is just a road. NOthing spectacular and little green and wet.

US-16 between Ten Sleep and Buffalo is the better of the two routings as far as grade and turns go.

Stay on the US two-digit numbered highways and you'll rarely go wrong.

Beware that Google Maps may try to divert you onto county roads to save a mile or two. They're gravel. Ask me how I know....

14 and 16 are both good. 14A is steep heading up the west side. Coming down on the east side you join up with 14 near Burgess Junction.

So 14 over to Greybull then 20/16 south to Worland and then East over to Buffalo? Do you know if I should carry extra fuel or will there be places to get gas?

If your range is over 75 miles you will be fine for either fuel or gas.

That is the route I would take.
