I rode over the Beartooth from Red Lodge Montana to Cooke City in August 2009. The ride is one of the most scenic roads that I have been on. The vista were fantastic. I will be riding the Beartooth again in 2015. If anyone is in the area, I would highly recommend this highway.

Mr. Van Dyke, you are incredible. I think you did a spectacular job making this road one for millions to enjoy. The views along this Highway and Beartooh Pass are AMAZING!!!! Glaciers to glacier fed lakes. The summit is 10,947 feet in elevation and this is a NOT to be missed sight!!!

If driving along overlooks and maneuvering switchbacks gives you white knuckles, then this is not the highway for you. But if you like a challenge and love the switchbacks, then this is the perfect highway. There are beautiful views along the way and an isolated lake at the top with a campground. Do the whole drive from Cooke City to... More

this was one of the best drives I have ever had. It's amazing to drive on top of the mountains covered with snow.. Must go place.

My mom said at the end of this road that this was the most beautiful country she had ever seen. It was gorgeous. The differences in the elevations, from the lower mountains with the forest to the meadows with the vast amount of blooming flowers (we hit the perfect time for this as I understand that they only bloom for...

Probably the most gorgeous drive I've ever been on. The mountains are phenomenally majestic. The way the road is designed gives some great views.

We drove this road in mid-September, in good weather. It was indeed impressive, but in our opinion, the Going To The Sun road in Glacier N.P. is much better. If this route takes you to where you want to go next, fine, but from Bozeman, it was an all day trip for us, and probably not worth it. The Top... More

To me, this drive is comparable to Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Both are two of the most scenic drives anywhere, but one of the things I like about Beartooth is its proximity to Yellowstone. We’ve been here twice, once in June of 2012, and again in June of 2014. The first time, the road and sky were clear…... More

We had taken this road trip maybe 20 years ago, it was beautiful then and it was BEAUTIFUL now. It was very cold, 19 degrees on the top and snowing. We did pull over once to look at the scenery, lakes and mountains. I would make this trip again in a heartbeat. I hope to do it again in the... More

Don't blink. Scenery was astounding - and we just came from 3 days in Yellowstone!!! The other cool thing was having a snowball fight in August. Stopped at all of the viewpoints. Note this is a full day experience. We drove from West Yellowstone to Red Lodge and it took the entire day (no stops in Yellowstone that day).
