Shell Canyon, 25 miles east of Greybull
, is a highlight of the Big Horn Mountains
. The trout fishing is said to be a mecca for fishermen, and the surrounding Shell Falls
is extremely picturesque.
Shell Canyon was formed over a period of millions of years by the erosion of Shell Creek. Hwy 14, Bighorn Scenic Byway, constructed in the mid 1960s, traverses the walls of this canyon. Cliffs of rock loom 2,000 ft over the Highway.
Visitors can learn all about the Bighorn Mountains and the surrounding areas and attractions, like Granite Pass and the town of Shell, at the Shell Falls Visitor Center.
