Like the great Alpine drives of Europe.

I've driven over many alpine drives in the US and in Europe and this one is in the top 10, easily comparing to the Grossglockner or Susten passes. The views are non-stop and the... read more

I've driven over many alpine drives in the US and in Europe and this one is in the top 10, easily comparing to the Grossglockner or Susten passes. The views are non-stop and the terrain is stark and beautiful. There are many opportunities to pull off and enjoy the scenery if you can stand the wind and cold. Even in... More

This is the highway to end all highways. Took the drive from Yellowstone National Park to Laurel and it was well worth it. Every twist of the highway had an even better view. This highway curves drastically. The switchbacks are fun, but can be a bit intense. Wonderful

If you are faint at heart maybe don't get on the Beartooth Highway. Views to die for! If you want to feel like you are on top of the world a definite must see.

While in red Lodge for the Beartooth Rally in July, we took the scenic Beartooth Highway for the poker run. It's hard to concentrate on the road with SO MUCH to see! The view and beauty are surpassed by nothing short of heaven! Incredible views that go on forever!

If you're anywhere near Yellowstone, Red Lodge or Billings, I would definitely recommend you take the time to drive Hwy 212 ( Beartooth Hwy). I drove from Billings to the quaint town of Red Lodge. Shortly after leaving town, US 212 begins to zig zag up the mountain. The landscape is breathtaking. There are overlooks and outtakes you won't want... More

I've been over the "Tooth" lots of times by motorcycle and car. Planning another trip this August with my base in Red Lodge for three days. That will give me at least three day trips over and back. It's fun to run down to Cody for lunch and that way you get to see the gorgeous Chief Joseph Highway as... More

As a Billings, MT native, I have been over this road so many times I can't count! It is stunning! And each season brings out a distinct beauty. Go in June and find snow fields scattered about and wildflowers everywhere. Go in July or August for a warmer trip with more of the landscape visible as the snow has mostly... More

This should be on every motorcycle rider's "bucket list"! If you are on a motorcycle I would definitely recommend taking hwy 212 from East to West. (You will be getting most of the tightest switch-backs going up-hill this way) It is just one continuous set of curves and switchbacks. The road is narrow but in good condition. Don't be surprised...

Breathtaking drive with amazing scenery! Lots of hairpin turns but nothing too scary. Take your time, stop and take in the majestic vistas.

Wow ! The drive was amazing. We started in Yellowstone and drove to Red Lodge. We stayed in Red Lodge outside the Yellowstone park just to do the drive. The winding roads, beautiful snow capped mountains, elevations were awesome. It is truly Top of the World. Snow capped mountains even in summer was amazing. We stopped in some permissible places...
