  • Such. A. Bust. We saw 10 horses and that was it. For two hours we drove so slowly. HOWEVER, the scenery on to the right, overlooking the area was stunning.  more »
  • Definitely would recommend! This is a beautiful drive, lots of scenic vistas. We did see some horses but the views made the drive worth it. It’s a very rocky start from Rock Springs but it levels...  more »
  • Nice habitat for wildhorses. The drive was a bit long without seeing many horses most too far to get a picture. But this family was there on the way in and out.
  • 4 stars only because there's a chance of seeing the herd if tour is planned carefully for time of day, we later heard either early morning or late afternoon/early evening hours. Even so, driving thru mid-afternoon we saw two group of horses totalling about 11 animals. Road from Hwy 191 to somewhere about 2/3 of way thru loop is rutted gravel (and we were warned). We found it better to go a little faster (+/-35) than creep. At 2/3 of way, road changes for a lot better - must be in a different county. As far as we are concerned, most of the "scenery" occurs on the horizon and we took many photos but the tour pleasantly whiled away about 2 hours. Another thought - can start loop from either Hwy 191 or from Green River. We had dinner planned off Exit 102 in Rock Springs and started from Hwy 191 which meant we had to pass our camp site to get back to Exit 102 and then drive back to Exit 99 to get to campsite. Not a big deal - except that my husband absolutely hates to waste time backtracking.
