US Hwy 14 in Wyoming

Heading to Sibley Lake in the Bighorn Nat Forrest and then on to the east side of Yellowstone. How is US 14 for travel in a 40 ft MH towing? Heading out from Sturgis on Monday.

Jeff, 14 over to Cody will be okay for you. Take your time going down the other side and be sure everything is in good order. 14A however is much steeper. Little scary.

Sibley Lake is very nice. Prune Creek Campground is also very nice and perhaps a little easier to access.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the quick response. First time getting into that type of elevation and the map shows a lot of curves at the beginning.

It is certainly a mountain road. Steep decent. Many RVs make that trip. Go slow, use lower gears and exhaust/jake brake so as to use your brakes as little as possible.

My father in law was a retired truck driver. He always said, "Brakes are for emergencies. If you need them you messed up."
