The road leads through a desolate, desert-like area. The area has some height differences, but the higher mountain ranges are further west. There are no major side roads crossing between Thermopolis and Cody. The road passes east of the Absaroka Range along.
Cody is one of the more important places in rural Wyoming and is a crossroads of roads, including US 14 and US 16. The section through Cody has four to five lanes, partly with center turn lane. WYO 120 passes just east of the Yellowstone National Park mountain ranges. The first part from Cody has some low mountains in the area, the northern part is flatter. This area is also quite dry. About 60 kilometers after Cody, you reach the border with the state of Montana, after which State Route 72 continues in Montana to Bridger and Laurel.
The section between Thermopolis and Cody was originally numbered WYO 420 from the 1920s. WYO 420 was associated with former US 420. In 1945, WYO 120 was routed over this road, and extended north from Cody to the Montana border on a newly constructed road.
Every day, 1,100 to 1,600 vehicles drive between Thermopolis and Cody, up to 11,000 vehicles in Cody itself, and 1,500 vehicles north of Cody to the Montana state border.
