CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Transportation Commission recently designated a 28-mile section of Wyoming Highway 70 in the southern part of the state as the Battle Pass Scenic Byway.

It is Wyoming's 16th scenic byway and runs through the Medicine Bow National Forest between Encampment and Baggs.

The byway crosses Battle Pass at 9,955 feet in the Sierra Madre Mountains, through an area rich in historic and cultural sites, scenic vistas and recreation opportunities.

The route passes between Bridger Peak and Battle Lake, and near the Huston Park and Encampment River wilderness areas and Hog Park Reservoir.

Designation as a byway makes a route eligible for federal grants to preserve and promote features along the highway.
