I visited here while on a history tour with about 25 other friends. We had Neil Mangum, the former historian and superintendent of this park as our guide so we really did have an excellent tour of the battlefield and surrounding area. The battlefield monument...More

Who knew that this National Monument would be so amazing? More than just a battlefield - i.e. a field - this monument is filled with historical artifacts, plaques throughout the hiking trails and auto trail depicting exactly what happened at Little Bighorn.

They are prayer cloths, totally a Native American tradition. They are tied nearest to where an Indian scout was positioned who picked off many of the soldiers. He was killed there. Many of the cloths are placed there by family members.
We will be driving in late May from Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument to our hotel in West Yellowstone. We will be spending a week in Yellowstone/GT so we don't need to see all there is to see on this drive. What is the fastest route, recommended route, and the most panoramic route?

That's not difficult to answer. Drive to Billings and hw 212 to Red Lodge. From Red Lodge take the Beartooth Highway to NE entrance of Yellowstone. The Beartooth HW is one of the most scenic hw's in the US. Find out if the road is open to traffic due to snow even end of May. The pass is 11000 feet. If closed go back to Wyoming and to Cody. That's also a scenic route and Cody is a nice place to stay for the night. From Cody to East Yellowstone: There's another scenic road. Can't go wrong! ...More
Miles City restaurant? (3 Replies)
We are traveling between Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument (will be there late afternoon) and need a place to stay before going on the next day to Medora to visit TR National Park. Seems like Miles City would be better to stay in than Forsyth, based on comments below. Are there any reasonable (not fast food) restaurants in Miles City to get a decent meal with wine? Or would we be better off in Forsyth? Thanks

While Miles City is still a small town it has way more restaurants/lodging/shopping then Forsyth has. You will definately be better off going all the way to Miles City. Google Miles City restaurants to get an idea of what's available. Deb
