I really need words to express this beautiful scenery I saw today. I wish everybody could have the opportunity to come and see these beautiful surroundings. Truly a jar dropping experience. I was there a Saturday in July between 2 pm and 6 pm, and there were not as much traffic as I expected.

Best part of our trip to Yellowstone. Biggest buffalo herd I've seen between Yellowstone and Custer State Park stocks. Highway was a breeze to drive in good weather. Guard rails on all hazardous drop-offs. Best driven from Yellowstone to Red Lodge and don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise. Rarely do you have opposing traffic so ride the center... More

Wow!!!! Just beautiful!!!! A little nerve racking driving a motorhome throughout some of the switchbacks, but we took it slow and just loved the amazing views!!!! If you are in the area you have to do this and stay in Red Lodge, super cute town!!!!

Charles Kuralt was right, this is one of the most beautiful highways in America. Be sure and bring a jacket as it was quite cool when we got out at the top to enjoy the views. It is challenging for the driver as the road can be quite narrow and curvy in places. I kept saying " it is beautiful,... More

Beartooth Highway runs from Red Lodge to Cooke City in Montana. At it's highest driveable point (Beartooth Pass) it reaches 10,947 feet, which makes it the highest driveable pass not on the Continental Divide. The views are spectacular, but be aware that the road has a lot of very sharp turns. If you are planning on going to Yellowstone or... More

We drove over Beartooth with our family en route to Yellowstone a couple weeks ago. The views are absolutely amazing. Husband didn't notice the views so much as the narrow, winding mountain road with little to no shoulder and an impressive drop! There were plenty of pull-out spaces to take in the view though. Kids loved getting out to have... More

My husband and I drove this highway the last of May when it opened for the first time after the winter season. I had not done any research on this highway and so we did not know what to expect. The drive up the mountain was a little frightening but we managed to make it to the top. I am... More

We took this road on our way from Yellowstone to Mt. Rushmore as our driver had read that it was #1 scenic highway. It didn't disappoint. I can't remember having said "wow" so many times as we climbed up this incredible road. Highly recommend for anyone in the area.

Beautiful ride in to mountain top look-out. Switchbacks pretty tame by European standards but challenging enough. Watch out for hordes of bikers who seem to enjoy spoiling the peace with loud music and loud bikes , many older guys who never got beyond their bad-boy stage. Still worthwhile and beautiful with great vistas and unspoiled landscapes .

We have been debating which drive is more beautiful, Going to the Sun Road or Beartooth Pass... and there is no clear winner. The views from Beartooth Pass are some of the most beautiful ever, whereas you are in it at Going to the Sun Rd. It guess it is a tie... maybe not.... I have an affinity for this... More
