This is better than the Big Sur!. There are many observation sites, each interesting and spectacular in different ways. There are many, many hair pin bends so this is not a road to travel if you get car sick!

Begin this adventure 2 land drive at Red Lodge, Montana. I suggest you take advantage of purchasing a picnic lunch at the Beartooth Market at Red Lodge. During your drive to Cook City on the Pass there are no gas or food available. You will gradually reach a height over 10.000 feel. Take plenty of film, make frequent sightseeing stops... More

What a wonderful drive. Were visited in August. This road is closed during winter months. We drove from Cody, WY, to Red Lodge, MT, via the Beartooth Pass. It was truly spectacular. The highest elevation I saw on the GPS was 10,900 feet. We saw plenty of snow even in August. There are several scenic overlooks along the way and... More

The Beartooth is one of those times man kind has made seeing the grandeur of wilderness easy to behold with minimal effort of those who want to experience it. The Beartooth provides a great way to view Pika, a small little rodent that stuffs it's face with plants. Very cute, very fast. Take a walk and breath that rarefied air...

Incredible drive with beautiful panoramic scenes and heart stopping heights. Not for those afraid of heights. Just when you think you can't go any higher, you see another road above you. There will be snow to see, if not to touch on the top and it is cold and windy so wear a jacket. It will take you at least... More

The highest pass in North America at over 10000 feet it is a worthwhile drive, and takes a good while to get to Yellowstone this way, but stay in Red Lodge get up early and do it.

I recently traversed the Beartooth Pass on a motorcycle. It was indeed one of the great trips and adventures I've taken. This is a breathtaking ride, worth any pain and aggravation of getting there. Be forewarned, the winds are very strong, especially at the top. It's also quite cold, even in the summer.

Drove the Beartooth Highway on a trip from jAckson Wyoming to Red Lodge Montana. I kept thinking we must be close to the top around the next bend. After I began humming the tune about the bear and another mountain I began to see the road from the bear's perspective. What is around the next bend in the road, another... More

We must have traveled through the Bear Tooth Pass about 15 years ago. We entered the road from Yellowstone National Park, at around 9 P.M. in the month of August, I believe toward the end of the month. We had no idea what we were getting into. The road had several places where there was snow and I couldn't tell... More
