Leaving Yellowstone travelling east

We are taking a trip to Yellowstone this summer, on our return trip we plan to leave through Cody and head over to Devils Tower. Our question is which route is better once we get to Greybull, Wy. continue east on US 14 or turn south and follow US 16. Any Help is greatly appreciated.

I’m surprised no one has responded to your question. If it were me, I take 16 over to I-90 rather than 14. Hwy 16 would be a much easier drive. My 2 cents.

There are actually three choices for crossing the Bighorns. All three are less difficult eastbound than westbound.

Hwy. 16 is an easier drive, but IMO, hwy 14 is more scenic. If you do choose hwy. 14, be sure to stop an see the falls at the Shell Canyon visitor center.

My favorite route is hwy.14A. If you go that way, stop and visit Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area just east of Lovell. The scenery is spectacular and the campground is free. Bighorn sheep and wild horses can usually be found wandering along the roads.
