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...

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!!!
