We took the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway 296 to Beartooth Hwy 212 on our way from Cody, WY to Montana. I've always heard how beautiful it is, and I was not disappointed. It took about 4 1/2 hours from Cody to Red Lodge. But we stopped a lot. Take a jacket and wear long pants. It was windy and cold... More

The Beartooth pass surpasses any other road we have taken on the motorbike in Canada and the U.S. Compared to a lot of other mountain roadways in the summer, there is little traffic so it is a lot of fun on a motorbike. Others have commented on the sheer beauty and what is there to add but total agreement- it... More

This stretch of US Highway 212 has been described as "the most beautiful drive in America," but I would go a step further. It's the most beautiful *place* in America, winding up to amazing heights, past vistas and through forests. You're bound to be blown away (quite literally -- bring a jacket!) by what you see -- amazed that your... More

This is an outstanding scenic drive! It starts at Red Lodge and runs to Cooke City. The views are as good as the Going-to-the-Sun road in Glacier National Park and I didn't think that was possible.

My son and I had some extra time and decided to drive the Beartooth Highway while we were visiting YNP. I must say this is the most scenic highway I have ever traveled. The views are stunning. In mid July, there was still snow and I got a photo of my son standing in it. We also passed a huge... More

This route(212) doesn't get so much high praise for nothing! We took it from Tower Junction in Yellowstone NP all the way to Red Lodge, Mt and it was well worth the 4 hours it took us. Right at the start the scenery changes from the rest of Yellowstone to more open, rocky hills with mountains all around you. We... More

Beartooth Pass is an experience, we did the trip in August and we actually went above the clouds, so kind of amazing when you enter a cloud then come out on the other side and look down on it, Has some beautiful site. We enjoyed the experience, will do it again. It does take time, many cut back and travel... More

This is a curvey and scenic road! Great views so don't forget your camera! There are places to pull off to use restroom and take pictures.

This was the MOST AMAZING drive ever!! We had heard it was awesome, but we didn't realize just how amazing it truly was until experiencing it ourselves!! We wanted to turn around and drive it again. We were amazed by it being the end of June, and 63 degrees and there was still so much snow. We didn't get to... More
