Cyclone Pass

Tucked in the foothills of Wyoming’s southern Wind River Range, the road to the pass is very challenging: very rough with some technical rocky sections. It’s called Shoshone Lake Road. 4x4 vehicle with high clearance required. Starting from Baldwin Creek Road, the drive is 11.90km (7.4 miles) long.

Located within the Shoshone National Forest, this road is not plowed in the winter. It’s only reachable seasonally, generally June 30 through mid October. Along the way you'll be rewarded with some great views of Red Butte and Lander. The drive is steep, hitting a 17% through some of the ramps.
