I don't have the words to describe the experience of riding Beartooth pass on a motorcycle. Best I can do is to say it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever traveled on two wheels and would recommend it to anyone with the caution that it might not be the best place for a novice rider.

How often do you see snow in August in the US? Well take a look at Beartooth Pass, my girls had a snowball fight in August. Lots of hairpin turns and lookouts all the way to 10,900 feet of elevation. Great look out near the top with parking, restrooms and chipmunks that have clearly taken a liking to human food.... More

We took this drive coming out of Yellowstone National Park north east entrance and it was an amazing drive. We saw lots of wildlife and drove through two mountain passes that we were able to stop and take pictures. It feels like you're on top of the world. There are several lakes that you can stop at and they are... More

Absolutely beautiful drive. Lots of turn outs so the driver and passengers could enjoy all the views. There are a number of small lakes along the way and hiking trails. We found about 20 mountain goats at the top of the pass. I am so glad my wife suggested this route for our trip to Yellowstone National Park.

Can't say enough about the views of Awe! Everywhere you look it takes your breath away. It is a must see in the USA.

Seriously, I could just write Awesome 50 times and that would be all you need to know. There is no wonder this road is often voted in the Top 10 of all scenic drives in the 50 states. It's only 51 miles long but took us 3 hours to drive, not because of traffic or road works, but because you... More

Outside of Red Lodge Montana you take the pass up over and it is amazing. Narrow road, lots of switchbacks, kinda scary but a great viewpoint and that's not even on top. Very beautiful and hard to imagine how it was built.

The Beartooth Pass is a section of US Highway 212 starting south of Red Lodge Montana. It ends in Cooke City, after passing in and out of Wyoming. It is well worth going out of your way to experience. We were staying in Greybull Wyoming while passing through the Big Horn Mountains and someone suggested the Beartooth, describing it as... More

There's not much that can be said about this drive and summit. It's beautiful. Some of the switchbacks can be a bit terrifying if you're afraid of heights. Will definitely be coming this way again, well worth the trip.
