I have done this a few times. This is, IMHO, second only to Beartooth. And the good part is, it end where Beartooth begins!. You can do them both, over and then back if you stay in Cody, WY,. This is a great road and ride. Elevation changes, terrain changes, topography changes, pull offs with views, and historical markers about the flight of Indians chased by the 7th Calvary (Stop and read these at the summit at the pass at top). Stop about one mile down from the pass for some great photo ops ove the view and looking over the valley to BearTooth Highway. Lightly traveled everytime I have been on it. Lightly patroled as well. In the fall, I have encountered cowboys on horses moving their cattle down from the higher elevations at the end of grazing season before snowfalls, so watch for them around a blind curve. I have seen mule deer, Elk, coyote and hawks while riding. Fantastic ride. Somewhat challenging and the down hill has some switchbacks which might have some rock fall debris. Put this on your bucket list
