Sheridan County features a pair of U.S. Scenic Byways, both of which serve as trailheads to epic adventure. The Bighorn Scenic Byway begins in Dayton, home to the stunning Tongue River Canyon, and features Steamboat Point, Sibley Lake, Shell Falls and views of the Cloud Peak Wilderness. The Medicine Wheel Scenic Byway, which begins at Burgess Junction high atop the mountain and runs toward Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, features the namesake Medicine Wheel, Porcupine, Bucking Mule and Paradise Falls, as well as hundreds of miles of untouched backcountry terrain.
Historic downtown Sheridan is home to classic American architecture, beautiful neon signs and postcard-perfect small-town charms, like 100-plus pieces of public art, King’s Saddlery, the Sheridan Inn and so much more. The Battle of Little Bighorn site is just one hour away, while six other historic battle sites are located nearby.
The Bighorn Mountains are located 3.5 hours from Yellowstone National Park to the west and 2.5 hours from Devils Tower National Monument to the east, making Sheridan County the perfect road trip destination for visitors exploring the best of the Great American West.
