Getting There

There are many ways to reach the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area. This method approaches from HWY 16. From Ten Sleep, WY. travel 25 miles North East on HWY 16 to Deer Haven Lodge. Turn left or West on West Tensleep Lake Rd a wide well mantained dirt road. This road immediately adjusts course to head North. A 7 mile drive veering right at the only fork will put you at West Ten Sleep Lake where you may begin your hike. Alternatively, if you go left at the fork, you will travel 8 to 9 miles to a more arbitrary parking and thus shortening the overall hike.
