Enter the Bighorn National Forest at mile 5.5
Summary by PJAMM’s Bruce Hamilton.
This climb starts in Dayton, WY – close to Sheridan. It’s fairly isolated in central Wyoming but we were not disappointed. There are often afternoon thunderstorms in this area and we got hammered on our descent. This could be avoided by starting early. This one is not brutal by PJAMM standards but there is a long stretch of 7-8% climbing with no break. Starts in high prairie and ends in forest. Nice rock formations along the way. Beautiful descent with smooth road that would be a blast in dry weather.
