Coming from the East, I'd go on I-90 to Buffalo, WY then on US 16 to Worland and Cody. US 16 goes over the Big Horn Mtns but it's not too bad a ride. If you go on I-90 to Sheridan, US 14 or US 14 alt are MUCH more of a challenge. Lots of switchbacks and very steep sections.

I've never thought of going I-90 to Livingston MT and south on US 89. I've taken US 89 north out of Yellowstone to Great Falls and Glacier, but it's WAY out of the way as a route to Yellowstone from the East unless you've got business in Billings.

Just went thru the park from Cody to West Yellowstone. Pulling a 40 ft. 5th wheel. Nice drive and you will see a lot of other rigs of all sizes. The speed limit is mostly 45mph. I questioned that route till I found that their is a RV park in the middle of the park that is big rig friendly. You have to be able to get there somehow.

We just did the Powder River Pass 5 days ago, went west to east pulling a Jeep. I put the V-10 in Drive 3, maintained 3500 rpm's and up we went . . . .at about 40 mph. Not a whole lot of traffic on that road. I did have a point where I had two cars behind me, came to a pull out, so I moved over, the 1st car passed, the 2nd held back for some reason and I ran out of road so I had to stop to let him pass, this ended my momentum, took me a little bit to get back up to "my speed". At 8300 feet I thought I was on top of the world, my daughter then reminded me we had another 1300 to go. The scenery on the west side with it's steep rock canyons was spectacular, so glad I did it. The east side, our downside, was beautiful in it's own right, rolling timber filled hills, long way down, no problems, just took it slow.

WARNING: Hwy 16 from Newcastle to Custer is under "major" road construction..... on the Wyoming side and on the S. Dakota side. There is a section near Custer where there is no road at all for about 5 miles . . . pure mud, I swear the road crews were making bets on the side whether one was going to make it through or not.

See large tourist buses up there all the time. Also many MHs that are 40 ft. One of the big problems where you will have to be careful is going through the main gate. WATCH YOUR MIRRORS. Some of the entrances, especially Cody, are very narrow. The ranger will remind you. Just be careful.
