Big Spring Scenic Backway

Wyoming Scenic Byway Logo

This 68-mile Scenic Backway hosts beautiful mountain views, wide river valleys and a multitude of wildlife viewing opportunities.  Historically, this Backway was part of the Oregon Trail and in some areas you can still see tracks and ruts left from the early pioneer's wagons.  Come recreate and soak in the history of the Big Spring Scenic Backway.

The Backway is an unimproved Forest Service road where 4-wheel drive is highly recommended.  Driving the Backway is very remote travel and requires excellent map navigation skills.
