Even on a weekday, there were too many pylons and cages blocking what could have been one of the best rides in Western North America. The views were spectacular and the pavement was good. Lots of places to pull over and take in the sights, too bad more cagers didn't. However, this ride leads to the Chief Joseph Highway, something... More

Thrilling ride through the mountains on a curvy road with numerous switchbacks. US 212 (Beartooth Highway) is paved all the way. You'll have to take it slow, but you'll want to as the views are fantastic, especially above the timberline. We went west to east in late June and the road was clear, though snow remained along the roadside in... More

We have rode our Harley over this pass two years in a row, last yer it rained on us. This year it was perfect weather to ride over, what a wonderful place to see.

We went over the Beartooth Pass on September 23rd from Red Lodge Montana. It was open the day we went but had been closed a few days before and was closing a couple of days later due to freezing temperatures. It is a spectacular view. We stopped at a gas station just prior to entering the pass and they gave... More

However you drive along US Highway 212 you will find that making it to Beartooth Pass is very rewarding. The mountainous road with sharp curves, steep climbs and deep valleys provides views that are simply stunning. Be sure to stop at Beartooth Pass Summit and let the scenery and fresh air take your breath away.

Located near Red Lodge, MT (a personal favorite small town of mine) this gorgeous roadway boasts some of the most spectacular views in Southern Montana. In a state with no shortage of beautiful landscapes this pass holds its own. I recommend driving this stretch in summer or early fall. It will close for inclement weather and does shut down in...

This is a beautiful drive over the Beartooth Mountains. The road is well kept, but only open certain months of the year. Always good to check in advance. The views are spectacular and unmatched anywhere. Don't be in a hurry, this is probably a one of and will take a good part of the day. The only drawback is that... More

This should be on every motorcycle rider's "bucket list"! Breathtaking views, great road conditions, hundreds of corners, turns & switchbacks, thousands of feet of elevation change. I can't think of another thing that someone travelling on a motorcycle could ask for! There are plenty of places to pull over and take pictures, or to simply take a few minute break... More
