A Beautiful Mountain Drive Loop – Call the USFS for more info 307-684-7806 Take a drive on Hwy 16 West towards the Bighorn Mountains.  

Enjoy the views, take a hike at Hunter Corrals, Circle Park or Elgin Park, all trailheads nestled just 15-20 minutes away from downtown Buffalo.

About 25 minutes from Buffalo, a left turn at Forest Road 33 takes you past Muddy Guard Cabin and onto Crazy Woman Canyon road. This road winds its way down the canyon, offering scenery and a drive that are breathtaking, and brings you out at Old Hwy 87, south of Buffalo.

Listen to the beautiful sound of the water cascading through the rocks of Crazy Woman Creek or stop for a quick picnic at some of the campsites along the scenic road. (May-October, 4 wheel drive only).

After passing through the Canyon and driving for about 6 miles through beautiful ranch country, you will intersect Old Hwy 87.

Take a right turn (South) and travel 3 miles to the historic TA Ranch. There you can find “bullet” proof history of the Johnson County Cattle War. While you are there, take a tour under the old cottonwood trees, the barn, and stay for an excellent supper at the old cookhouse with views toward the prairie that take you back in time.
