1 Day Itinerary A Single Day of Wow

One of our greatest assets in Sweetwater County is natural beauty. Buckle up and get ready for a day of auto touring through our painted landscape. A camera and binoculars may as well be required.

8:00am–11:30am

Begin by meeting some of our most famous residents: the wild horses of Pilot Butte. Take the Pilot Butte Wild Horse Loop Tour in a high clearance four-wheel drive vehicle. Wear some closed toed shoes, a light jacket and maybe a hat. Make sure to bring a camera, some binoculars and plenty of water and snacks.

11:30am–1:00pm

Go on a scenic drive by traveling the western half of the Flaming Gorge Scenic Byway south on Highway 530. Plan for several pull-overs to take pictures of the local wildlife.

1:00pm–2:30pm

Have lunch at the Flaming Gorge Resort.

2:30pm–4:00pm 

Continue the scenic drive by heading up the eastern half of the Flaming Gorge Scenic Byway north on Highway 191. Again, natural beauty abounds at every turn.

6:00pm–7:30pm

Finish the day with a delicious dinner at the Coyote Creek Steakhouse in Rock Springs.
