In this research, criteria were developed for designating and evaluating scenic loop tours based on roadway conditions, scenic beauty, number of local communities, population, and anchor attractions. Two existing scenic loop tours in Wyoming -- the Cheyenne and Oregon Trail Loop Tour and the Bighorns Basis Loop Tour -- were evaluated on the basis of the developed criteria. Recommendations were suggested to improve the value of existing scenic loop tours within Wyoming based on the results of this evaluation.
