Probably the best entrance into Yellowstone park. This road offers great views of the landscape and wildlife.

This 63 mile drive from Cooke City to Red Lodge is an awesome experience. Plan a full day for the round trip and do it on a day when weather is great. You will experience a lot, spectacular mountains, alpine lakes, wild flowers, snow/glaciers and difficult yet rewarding drive (beartooth pass is over 3300m high) It takes about 3 hours... More

We drove this highway in mid-September. The pass had been closed a couple of days prior to our arrival and was going to be closed a couple of days after. It is an unbelievable drive. Spectacular views around every corner. Take it slow and enjoy the scenery. We stopped at a little store right as you leave Red Lodge and... More

This was a bucket list drive for me and it exceeded my expectations! It is a stunning drive with lots of places to turnout and just soak in the gorgeous scenery. We stopped in Red Lodge at the visitor center and they had a map with points of interest, which was very helpful.

As a part of our 2 wk trip out West with our party of 10, we left Cody, WY early in the morning on our way to the NE entrance to Yellowstone NP. We drove the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway (which was great itself), then continued on to the Beartooth Highway. The views were awesome as you continued your climb... More

All I can say is if you got the time just drive this road its fantastic views are something not to be missed. Yes its got some steep climbs but nothing to scare you not in my opinion anyway everyone in our party thought it was fantastic.

I suffer from a fear of heights but was determined to see this beautiful stretch of highway. We left from Lamar Valley in the late morning and started our journey to Red Lodge where we planned to have lunch and turn around. The weather was perfect although there was road work that was delaying traffic both ways when we went... More

Too lovely for words, but I'll try. We drove from Cody, WY to Red Lodge MT via Chief Joseph Hwy and Beartooth. Beautiful vistas at every turn, and there were hundreds of turns. Frequent turn-outs allow you to stop and soak in scenery. Get someone else to do the driving if you can. At the highest point we were above... More

So many beautiful sights I thought we would never get to Red Lodge. Due to time constraints we almost didn't make the drive. That would have been a huge mistake! It seemed like every bend in the road revealed another breathtaking site.
