Cheyenne, Laramie and Southern Wyoming Sights

Happy Jack Road

  • Scenic Drive/Tour

Fodor's Review

Although I–80 connects Cheyenne and Laramie more quickly, the drive between the two cities on Happy Jack Road (Highway 210) is very scenic, particularly in spring and early summer, when wildflowers are in full bloom. The road winds over the high plains, past Curt Gowdy State Park, and provides access to the Vedauwoo Recreation Area before linking back to I–80, 7 mi east of Laramie at the Lincoln Monument. At this state rest area you can obtain information about

the region and view a larger-than-life sculpture of the 16th president.
