Complete solitude as you ride/drive switchbacks above the tree line. Out below you, for 50 miles, alpine lakes, meadows, high mountain peaks.

Many people say it's the no.1 most beautiful and scenic highway in America. I have not been to many scenic highways in America yet but I think I believe in that claim. It is at least the most beautiful highway that I have been to in my life. We actually did it twice as we drove from a Cooke City... More

We actually traversed this road three times in three days. Other reviews extol the scenery. They do not over state the beaury of the scenery. One trip was in glorious sunshine, another was when there was a lot of low cloud. Our advice would be to choose a claer day with little or no cloud. Allow 5 hours if you... More

Pick a sunny "bluebird" day and ride this road in June if you can. Right after it opens there are still huge banks of snow lining the road, and the rivers are raging with all the spring snow-melt. Sharp banked turns and switchbacks keep the adrenaline flowing as the view changes every few seconds. At times you'll swear you are... More

I took my wife, 15 year old daughter and her friend across the Beartooth Pass on our way to Yellowstone National Park. I had been 10 years ago and, while planning this trip, I made sure to fly into Billings so I could go through and blow their minds. We went through on June 29th and July 5, 2014, it... More

What a great highway to just drive and experience the beauty of this area. Its hard to believe one highway can exhibit such beauty.

I'm scared of heights, I hate windy roads, and the thought of Beartooth Highway made me nervous all day. But the moment we started up the road it was like everything fell behind us. All that matters up there are the mountains, the roads, and the views. When you finally get to about 10,000 feet where it's too high for... More

This really is one of the most impressive drives in the United States. With every hairpin turn, wildlife sighting, road splashing waterfall, and jaw dropping vista, the one word that will slip from your mouth constantly will be "WOW!". Where else can you turn a (roughly) 60 miles in length drive into a 4-6 hr. adventure? Feel that white knuckle... More

Beautiful vista followed by more beautiful vistas. And, Red Lodge on the other end was a neat town as well.

We drove from Yellowstone to Red Lodge in June. The highway is a series of hairpin turns, steep drop-offs, overlooks and great views. Although the road is a bit narrow in places it is well maintained. We got a bonus. There was still quite a bit of snow in mid-June (the ski lift at Beartooth pass was still operating). There... More
