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...

Beartooth highway was one of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken. High elevations, beautiful views, snow capped mountains in late August. Temperatures differing at various times due to elevations. A great way to enter Yellowstone. We picked it up at Red Lodge, Montana and took it to Yellowstone. A must drive when in the area.

Plan for a full day to enjoy the marvels that Beartooth Highway provides, besides, the switchbacks won't let you drive fast anyway. We spent a day away from Yellowstone to drive this scenic route because a local friend told us it was a "don't miss opportunity". He was right. Although we didn't see wildlife like we saw in the park,... More

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

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.
