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.

Last visit we took Chief Joseph road from Yellowstone to Cody. We thoroughly enjoy taking scenic drives. The Beartooth Hwy did not disappoint. We were fortunate to have beautiful clear skies. There are amazing views at every turn in the road. You get it all, rocky mt. peaks, green mountains, valleys with streams and rivers, waterfalls. There was desert-like terrain... More

We did this drive from Red Lodge to Silver Gate, Montana, where we were staying. So glad we planned this into our schedule. We had an absolutely perfect day and the scenery is gorgeous. It's very surreal at the top where you are above the tree line. We also made the stop at the Top of the World rest stop,... More

This was one of the most amazing drives we have done as a family. Totally recommend taking the time to do it and stopping by the various sites and scenic overlooks along the way. We went in late August and saw snow, which we did not expect. We had stayed in Red Lodge the night before and I recommend doing... More

Heading to Yellowstone, I took the Beartooth Highway into the NE Entrance. It was partly cloudy, but the views were amazing. There was still snow in Aug and many times I was above the clouds. If ever even close to the area, do this drive, the Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy that connects, and camp at the Beartooth Lake Campground. You're... More

Drove this beautiful and varied landscape 8/30/14 from I-90 to Route 78 to Red Lodge, MT. That drive in itself is great. Once on route 212 (Beartooth Highway) you get immediate sense of grandeur. We drove thru snow showers, windy conditions with temperature in low 30s. We still got out often to take in landscape although mountain visibility limited. This... More

This was a great way to get to Yellowstone. This scenic road is one of the most beautiful in the country. Don't hurry - just enjoy the drive.

We travelled the section between the NE entrance to Yellowstone and the city of Red Lodge. It took us 4 hours round trip because of the many opportunities to stop and enjoy waterfalls, lakes, and tremendous views of the mountains.

We were camping in Gardiner, MT for our Yellowstone vacation. A friend recommended we take a drive to Red Lodge, MT via Beartooth. So very glad we did!!! We went from Gardiner thru Yellowstone Lamar Valley to Cooke City and up/over to Red Lodge. Took most of the day to get there and back, but it was amazing and absolutely... More

We flew into Billings for a trip to Yellowstone/Grand Teton area. We decided to take this drive as it is described as one of America's great scenic drives. Every turn was beautiful, and we stopped along the way several times. I am sure every season has a different view but we enjoyed seeing melting snow, and ice covered lakes. Had... More
