Route From Spearfish To Moran WY

Hi All. Cindy and I are heading to Yellowstone the 1st week of Sep. We'll be in our class C pulling a toad via dolly. Current plans are 6 days camp in Moran WY. We may also spend addition camp days in West Yellowstone. We are looking for recommendations on routes from Spearfish to Moran. Thanks in advance for any help or recommendations you may have!

469 miles - my choice would be I-90 west to Buffalo, WY; 16 to Worland; 20 south to Shoshoni; 134/26 west to Moran - the prettiest route

464 miles - I-90 west to Gillette; south on 50/25/I-25 to Casper, WY; West on 26 to Moran

509 miles - I-90 west to Sundance; 585/85/18/I-25/26 to Moran

Yellowstone is one of my favorite destinations. I grew up in Wyoming and have family in Gillette, Riverton and other places in Wyoming. I drive all these roads from time to time and don't hesitate to drive any of them if it is the most expedient.

This LINK is the way I would go simply because it is the easiest.

Here's why, between Buffalo, WY and Tensleep, WY lies Powder River Pass. I'm sure your motorhome would have no problem navigating it but why? Powder River Pass is a significant mountain road. The climb from Buffalo at 4600' to the summit of Powder River Pass at 9700' is 5100'. As a comparison the rise from Vail, CO at 8100' to the summit of Vail Pass at 10,700' is 2'600'. Powder River Pass is twice as much mountain as Vail Pass. This forum has continued conversations on ways to avoid driving Vail Pass!

It will take at least an hour longer going over Powder River Pass then the others because of the mountain driving with your motorhome.

Going to Moran, WY from Spearfish I would take the route shown on the attached map. There are no significant elevation changes on that route until you are approaching Moran. Togwotee (Tog-e-tee') Pass lies between Dubois and Moran. You will have to traverse it any route you choose.

The 469 route above.
This post is my opinion, worth what you paid for it.
Our ”New” ride...08 HR Navigator 45’. A nice upgrade after 14 years with a 04 Dynasty 42’.
