A Few Considerations:
*Parking- At designated pullouts only, head in, not parallel.
*Trash Disposal- Public Bighorn Climber Coalition funded dumpster at the Ten Sleep Brewery, Dumpster located at the Ranch, Or pack it home (never use a private dumpster on someone’s property!)
*Restrooms- Port-o-potties on the Old Road funded by the BCC, Or pack it out methods for National Forest lands.
*Showers- Pay at the Rock Ranch, Ten Sleep Brewery, Ten Broek RV Park, or Deer Haven. Never shower in the town Splash Pad, or the park public restrooms. Avoid bathing in the river.
*Respect established trails and road closures (Old Road opens mid June to mid November).

*Respect the town’s people and other outdoor users.
