Excellent for three summer months!

Closed because of snow except when they plow it for the three summer months! Go there. You will not forget it. Also visit Red Lodge.

I certainly recommend doing this drive. We drove the road in a RV and it is doable. It is very beautiful and rugged. Different from any other drive we tried. You see the road from above in the film "Horse Whisperer", and that's how we found out about it. Be aware to check if the road is closed due to... More

After doing the Icefields parkway earlier in the week this was somewhat of a letdown but beautiful just the same. We left Butte in the morning and had a day to drive through Yellowstone on our way to Billings to fly home to Mich. A nice drive from Bozeman along the Gallatin river to Big Sky and to West Yellowstone.... More

If you are in the Yellowstone area in the summer, then a scenic drive along the Beartooth Highway is rewarding. I felt "on top of the world" at the higher elevations. I won't lie, though. After all the hype, I found it underwhelming. At these altitudes the landscape looks rocky & sparse---almost tundra-like. You can see the receding glaciers, which... More

Breathtaking views!! Can't wait to drive again! It ends at Yellowstone. So you either pay to enter the park. Or turn around . Yellowstone or the Beartooth was not in our travel plans but very very glad we saw both.

little scary of a drive in some parts, but it is so beautiful, and so worth it! Truley shows some of the best parts of "Big Sky" country.

I can see why this is referred to as "the most beautiful drive in America." It lives up to that claim. The views are spectacular. The lakes are beautiful. We saw mountain goats and marmots. Don't miss the short walk to the pedestrian bridge for a look at a powerful and magnificent Lake Creek Falls.

This was another of our favorite places to see on our 3500 mile trip. The views are beautiful. You feel as though you are on top of the world. The hairpin curves and steep inclines are exciting. Beautiful lakes!

Although we got to the top , by the time we reached the top they had closed the gate at the border!!!!! Due to snow and wind!!!! So we had a 120 mile detour to get to Yellowstone Park. It is a great drive with spectacular views on the way up at least. When we got out at the top... More
