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

The road up to Beartooth Pass is absolutely breath taking. The views you get from some of the overlooks are out of this world. In addition, we did see a lot of animals even a moose (which was my first time).

I rode the Pass in mid-June, with 5 motorcyclists. The views were breathtaking! The road is in great shape. We started in Red Lodge and rode to Yellowstone, from alpine valleys to snow covered peaks. Don't forget to stop at the Top of the World Store for a souvenir and a visit to the outhouse. We had sunshine, rain, and... More

..so says the late Charles Kuralt and I agree with him. We held our breath as we climbed the winding switch back narrow mountain pass up 11,000 feet then descended slowly savoring every minute of the breathtaking views. Take a. Few minutes and pull off at the top and get out of your car to take a 360degree look over... More

This is the best drive I've ever done in America, absolutely stunning from start to finish. The scenery is of course the highlight, but also the air is so fresh, it's just a beautiful experience! Add in the wildlife you'll see, right down to those friendly little chipmunks, and you have THE most spectacular entrance into wonderful Yellowstone. In fact,... More

Do it! We loved this trip. We went over the pass on purpose...it is one of Montana's beautiful places. Although it was snowing and a little windy but stopped and got out to enjoy the beauty. I think the trip in the Spring or Summer would be fantastic.

Beartooth Pass Highway is one of America's best scenic roads. Beginning at the northeast entrance of Yellowstone park, the highway flirts with the Wyoming/Montana state line. Stop for views of Pilot Peak. Note the junction of Hwy 212 (Beartooth Pass Highway) and 296 (Chief Joseph Highway), but remain on 212, and travel 1.2 miles. Just after crossing a bridge, park...

We drove this highway/pass in about a half day from Cody, WY, up to Red Lodge, MT. You do not have to enter Yellowstone this way and can save that for another day. However, in my opinion, this drive was much more beautiful than just about anything in Yellowstone. There are lots of pull outs you can stop and take... More
