Along Wyoming Highway 70 between Encampment and Savery, the Battle Creek Overlook provides a spectacular place to view the mountains. Just west of the Sandstone Ranger Station in the Medicine Bow National Forest is a paved road heading south. In a half mile or so, the Overlook is right off the road. The highway passed by here until the great slide in 2010.
