Description

An outdoorsman's paradise, Buffalo is nestled in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. It's a little town that looks like it's been frozen in time since Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hid out in the famous western. The architecture on its historic Main Street will make you feel like you've just stepped out of a time machine into the wild, wild West. If you're looking for a bit more to do, Buffalo is perfectly located to give you easy access to skiing, boating, camping, hunting, fishing, lakes, streams, mountains, and even national wonders-Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone-if you're willing to drive a few hours. Although you'll enjoy your stay in historic hotels in town, you'll want to spend most of your time outside. Whether it's mountain biking, boating, water-skiing, golfing, hiking, or backpacking, you'll get your fill of the beautiful outdoors in this quaint little town.

Biking and Mountain Biking

Within the City of Buffalo, there are plenty of places to bike, and it is an enjoyable way to see our city. For the slightly more adventurous there is a bike trail that starts just past the old Veterans Home near Clear Creek and then follows Hwy. 16 towards the mountains for about 3 miles. This all asphalt bike and path way is completely separate from the highway and provides you a great view of the Bighorn Mountains.
