Drove this in the end of Sept and yes there was traces of snow! BEAUTIFUL look outs and stops along the way. We went out of our way to drive this and so glad we did. Just do it...slowly. :-)

One of the more spectacular drives in the USA. Well worth the time to drive to the observation point just below the crest. It was beautiful the cold, cloudy day we were there. it must be absolutely spectacular in sunshine. Would not try to pull an RV over. Switchbacks and pitch would make it very difficult.

We were lucky and hit the pass on a day when it was open. We drove up from the Montana side to the summit and it was breathtaking. I grew up in the mountains of Utah, but this was spectacular. I wish we would have had time to go down the Wyoming side, but we didn't and I will have... More

I'll never forget this drive! I come from mountains and curvy roads, but the Beartooth showed me a thing or two. It was beautiful and scary all at the same time. As we drove, we could see snow coming. The closer we got, the wind picked up and the temperature dropped more than 15 degrees. We drove out as amazed... More

So, I debated not driving across the Beartooth Pass, since I was driving 36' Class A gas RV, and some had said it was near to impossible in a large RV. Well, I'm glad I was "foolish" and drove it against internet advice. Went across from Red Lodge, MT into Yellowstone' NE entrance. Took it easy going up, and easy... More

We almost didn't make it. The day we planned on going they were closed due to inclimate weather. We waited two days and tried again. Success! What a beautiful scenic drive, allow three hours so you can take all the turnoffs and drive up to the tower. The tower is three miles of us paved roads, but so worth it.... More

Absolutely beautiful drive. Had been told by many a must drive for a once in a lifetime adventure. Not disappointed at all very curvy road but enjoyed every mile. Would recommend to anyone visiting that area. Met many interesting people at all stops which you must stop often and look out.

From the first curve to the last - this exhilarating drive is one of the most beautiful drives in the US. Want to experience the mountains - but don't have a lot of time to do so? This is definitely the drive for you! The spectacular view will make you feel like your at the top of the world!!

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
