Thumbs down West Yellowstone to Cody

Need some help. I will be staying on the west side of Yellowstone and want to go to Cody then down to Cheyenne. I will driving a 43' coach pulling a toad. Google maps gave me two routes. One is rt 287 to 16 to Cody. The other is 287 to 212 to296 to 120 into Cody. Can or should I skip both and go up and around . Which one would be the most difficult with the size coach.

Thanks

stay on 287 it is much easier than the bear tooth hiway. just plan on delays for rubber neckers and animals.
we got hung up today for 45 minutes for a bear and her cub. traffic was backed up a good 2 miles when we got through.

296 over dead indian pass is slow going. Beautiful country but fairly steep. Great view. Unfortunately someone cut down and stole the metal indian statues at the top several years ago. All the roads in this area are mountainous.

Go right through the park and exit at the east entrance not far from Cody. Leave early morning if you can to avoid the park traffic and you'll probably see some critters.

When I was there a couple of years ago, I just drove through the park, from West Yellowstone and out the east entrance to Cody.

Are you referring to grade north of Rawlins? If so, there is only one down grade that isn't bad. WY residents take 287 north of Rawlins to avoid South Pass in the winter which gets snowed in at times. Does get windy at times north of Rawlins.
