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).

The best drive in Montana! This was by far the best drive we had in Montana! We didn't see much wildlife but the views were out of this world!

We took the drive from Gardiner through Yellowstone to the Beartooth Highway on a cloudy day - it was SPECTACULAR!! There were times that it appeared that we would drive right into the clouds. The sun would hit parts of the drive and just take your breath away. The road is about 71 miles long, but expect to take 2-3... More

This was the first part of a three week trip in the western states. What a fantastic way to start our trip. The road is just so beautiful that you do not want it to end! Would love to return and hopefully many others will have a chance to experience this wonderful road.
