Are you doing Buffalo or Cody first? I would suggest doing Buffalo first if you are coming from Sturgis, otherwise you would come to Buffalo via 16 from the opposite direction which to me is pretty but not as pretty as going up from the Buffalo side. Of course if you have time to spend I say go for it either way. Not really knowing what kinds of things you are interested in I would suggest 2 or 3 days in Buffalo. Besides the Big Horn Mountains we have the Historical Occidental Hotel and Saloon - a favorite spot of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. We also have the Gatchell Museum jam packed with Johnson County and Wyoming History. The museum looks small from the outside but you can spend hours there. We also have Crazy Woman Canyon. This canyon can be accessed from Route 16 or off of Old Wyoming Route 87. Accessing it from 87 is the prettiest way but can be harder to find. But we are friendly people here in Buffalo, so don’t be afraid to ask directions. We are a small town with only 3 stop lights and 2 small Mom and Pop grocery stores, but we do have a lot of charm. Coming down the Mountain is Clear Creek which runs through the center of town, with great hiking trails just out of town. You asked me how many days I would spend in Buffalo and my answer is I plan to spend the rest of my life here. I’m very proud to say I live in Buffalo, Wyoming.
