North entrance....Go south of Billings and I-90 on highway 212 through Red Lodge (MT). About 15 minutes south of town you go UP! way up to nearly 11,000 feet. Extreme road. About 2 hrs later after going over the top and down a even narrower south decent into Wyoming, you can go West into Yellowstone Park on 212 through Cook City, or East to Cody on the Chief Joseph scenic Highway, and it is nearly as good as the Beartooth! From the East do yourselves a favor and come from Sheridan over the Bighorn Mountains(another great route!). Suggest if going South to forget Yellowstone Park and go east! Fantastic mountain route. If you gotta see the park..Turn around at Sheridan and go back in on 14 through Cody. Don't miss these roads!

Scenery

This road will curl your hair. Lotsa UP and DOWN, little guardrails, awesome scenery. You couldn't build a better route than this one! Expect to see as many bikes on this road as cars! Everything from incredible mountains, dense forest, rivers, rocks to snow and tundra. And a whole lot of "straight down"!. Photo contributed by visitor in May 09: "Beartooth Pass In August 2008."

Road Quality

Steep grades, endless hairpin curves, countless switch-backs, good pavement as no trucks, campers dare go up this one!

Photo contributed by visitor in May 09: "Bear Tooth Pass Photo - August 2007."

Photo contributed by visitor in Jul 09: "View from overlook in MT. This is a stop with resrtooms and photo ops."

Photo contributed by visitor in Jul 09: "Near the summit on 212 in MT. Rain in the distance."

Roadside Amenities

Just lots of pullouts to peer over the edge!

I rode the Beartooth Hwy on August 5, 2011. It was part of a ride from NC to Sturgis for bike week. On the way out, I rode from NC to Cooke City, MT for the express purpose of riding the Beartooth Hwy. All I can say is, if I had ridden from NC to Cooke City, and had ridden the Beartooth Hwy and gone straight back to NC, it would have been worth the trip.

I've ridden a lot of beautiful roads in this country but, the Beartooth Hwy is without question my personal favorite. I'm going back to Sturgis in 2013 and I'm taking a friend of my to Yellowstone just so we can ride the Beartooth Hwy on the way back to Sturgis. This was a ride that was on my Bucket list and making the trip was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Don't miss this road!

Went to Cody, WY in July 2010 for the 70th annual Motor Maids convention. While out there was told that we HAD to ride Beartooth Pass - that it totally rivaled Deals Gap in TN. Based on what my peers were telling me I was terrified to ride it, but excited at the same time. Lots of area without guard rails - just stay focused and you'll do fine! The scenery was breathtaking - many many switchbacks and hair pin curves. Came in through Red Lodge, Montana and went out through Cooke City. Must stop at the Top of the World gift store and take in the scenery. The temp at the bottom was mid 60's but at the top it was 29 degrees and probably about 6" of snow left on the ground. The roads were very clear. Great ride - a MUST!

In July 2015 we took a trip to Yellowstone, The Tetons and Glacier National parks. 1st on the agenda and main reason for the trip was to ride Beartooth Pass. We spent a couple of days in Cody Wy. and on the 1st day went up the Chief Joseph Highway to Beartooth Pass and turned east toward Red Lodge. Turning around by Red Lodge so we could see it both directions, we headed back on Beartooth Pass all the way into Yellowstone National Park. The scenery is absolutely stunning and each time you round the next curve it is beautiful. There are plenty of places to pull over for photo opps and to enjoy the views. Bring warm clothing, even in July at 10,947 Feet it can cool off quite a bit. This is a great road and would have been well worth taking the 4200 mile trip for this part only. A must see for all riders.

I give this a rating of 5 if you are travelling east to west, but if you are going west to east I'd only give it a 4. The reason being on the east to west route you are climbing through the majority of the hairpins so you can power out of the corners for added fun. If you are travelling the opposite direction, you will be on steep down-hill sections through most of the fun curves. If you are riding a big cruiser type bike and simply out for a leisurely ride to see the scenery, it might not make much of a difference to you, but if you are in it for the curves on a sport bike, definitely ride it from east to west.
Bring along a jacket liner, as even in early September when I was here, there was still snow on the ground from the previous year, and it was very chilly in a mesh jacket.

How this isn't rated higher here I do not know. It should be 6 . By far the most scenic / fun / breathtaking rode I have ever ridden. Was actually voted as # 1 motorcycle road in America and I can see why. Rode across this on the 6th of June 2014 and it was absolutely amazing. A must do ! Just note, there was still a lot of snow up there on this date. Had only been opened a few weeks prior to our trip.

I live in Wyoming and try to do this ride every summer. The scenery is beautiful, and the roads are twisty and steep. There are a few hairpin curves, and you have to pay attention, but the experienced rider won't have any problems.

Be prepared for the temperature to be 20 degrees cooler on top of the pass with possible cold rain or even snow, especially early in the summer.

You won't be sorry that you rode 500 miles out of your way to do this ride. It is definitely worth the trip. I rank this up there with Trail Ridge Road and Independence Pass in Colorado.

August 8, 2015-This is one of the gnarliest rides I have ever done. It was 50ish degrees when we left Red Lodge and there was a chance of rain. The group I was with suited up in leather and raingear due to forecast and drop in temperature with the elevation. It started raining at the Overlook and by the time we topped the pass it was sleeting and 39 degrees. Stopped in at the Top of the World Store to warm up and buy dry gloves and handwarmers. Rode to Cooke City, back to Chief Joseph Highway to Wyoming Highway 129, back up to Belfry, MT and then ended at Red Lodge. I think it was around 171 miles...most of it in the pouring rain. If you have issues with tight cornering and heights take it slow and steady. Awesome view and scenery all the way around. This ride was a bucket list item that I crossed off my list but want to do it again in nicer weather.

What a treat! We rode from Yellowstone to Red Lodge in July 2015. Wow, we started with hundreds of Buffalo before we arrived at Cooke City. Lots of services there. We actually saw one more buffalo (walking down the road) as we left Cooke City and headed up the Beartooth Highway. The scenery is amazing. I love the rocky meadows and many lakes by the road. The switchbacks are all so smooth and there are plenty of places to pull over and just sit in the beauty. You'll know what I mean when you ride this road. It can get quite a bit cooler at the top. We had cloudy almost rain threatening clouds but no rain or... We did put on extra gear at the top to keep warm, but didn't really need to. I'd make sure to bring warm clothes just in case. We were well above the snow line. We got to ride back from Red Lodge the next morning. It was beautifully sunny and lots warmer. But it was pretty cool at the top that day too! There is a little store coming down the Cooke City side if you are inclined to buy mementos. Lots of bikers equals great motorcycle road. I saw Harleys, BMWs, Ducatis, Kawasakis, Hondas, absolutely every kind of bike up there. Be careful on the tight curves. This is a very fun road and one of the very top of my list. A Must Do Ride!

Rode this route summer of 2014 for the second time. This ride has got to be the top ride in the USA. Beautiful scenery, good twisties and good road surface. On this ride the weather was super, but it can change dramatically and at almost 11,000 feet the rain can be cold and wind can be severe. Well worth the time to travel this road even if you have togo out of the way to get there. If going north to south take the Hiway 296 turnoff and travel to Cody, WY. This is another great ride.

On my trip from NY to Seattle I knew I was going to love this ride. Went from Cody thru Chief Joseph Highway ( a terrific road in its own right) and then over Beartooth Pass. This was the most enjoyable day of riding my motorcycle ever and since.
Wish I had time to go back and do the pass 2 more times before continuing to Lolo Pass. The snow drifts on the sides were over 6 feet in places Temp at end of june were just fine.
A definite must do ride.

The Beartooth was the inspiration for our trip from Chicago in late August, 2012. There isn't an adjective to describe the beauty of this road. Be prepared for any weather, even in the summer (it snowed on Beartooth in early August). Well maintained, smooth asphalt. Plenty of pull-outs for stopping. Not at all dangerous or challenging, but extremely exciting! The best ride ever!

Rode Beartooth Pass on opening day May 28, 2010. This is the best of the best bar none. Heavy fog coming up the Chief Joseph trek. Once above the fog brilliant sunshine and snow drifts 8 & 9 ft high! Temps were in the 50's in Cody and dropped to 35 on the pass. The spectacular scnenery and sheer adventure of riding the pass the very morning it opened offset the cold temps.

Coasted into Red Lodge and tied up the iron horses in front of a saloon to have a celebratory beer. What a memory! Do this in your first life on earth.

What an incredible ride! Took the Bear Tooth Pass on my way to Sturgis and it was the highlight of my trip. The traffic was light and the weather was perfect. It's also true about the guard rails. I noticed that on the Montana side, they have guard rails...but on the Wyoming side, not so much. This was a great ride with great views.

Rode through here the week prior to Sturgis 2010. Stayed in Red Lodge and rode from East to west. It was an amazing ride and I will definately be back. The town of Red Lodge is nice and Hotels are plentiful. We had no problem finding rooms with no reservations and they weren't very expensive. I've heard good things about Chief Joseph byway that joins up with 212 just outside Cooke City. When I go back, I am gonna try to do both rides together.

Rode the Beartooth Highway from Red Lodge to Cooke City on 8/22/16 - two days before they temporarily closed it due to ice and snow!
What an amazing ride - be sure and have warm winter gloves and warm layers to put on toward the top, at 10,947 feet, it gets windy and chilly.
Loved the descent from the summit towards Cooke City - just beautiful scenery when you get back below the treeline. Everyone should ride this at least once!

The Beartooth Pass is right in my backyard so I ride it several times a year & I never get tired of it. We've run into snow in July and 50 MPH wide gusts, neither were fun, but even that was a great ride! Plan on layers, cool air, weather changes and eye candy galore. I recommend continuing south to also take in the Chief Joseph Hwy towards Cody instead of going to over to Cooke City/Silver Gate if you really want a fun ride. You will never forget it!

We went over the Beartooth with 5 bikes, a Harley Streetglide, a Sporty, 1 sport bike and 2 enduros. They all did fine. The view is spectacular and the road is is good shape. It was August so there were vehicles of all types and drivers of all levels on the road but they did not present any problems. If you make this ride, and you should, give yourself plenty of time to enjoy it.

This ride deserves its spot among the best motorcycle roads. I've made the trip several times from Red Lodge, MT to Cody, WY and Yellowstone. Believe me, I plan to ride the Beartooth many, many more times. On your 11,000 foot climb you get a little bit of everything. Unbelievable scenery, weather (hot, cold, sun, snow), lots of bikes, and remember, it is grizzly bear country!! I was last there in 2009 and there was a nice stop at the top known as the Top of the World. Take a break there and enjoy the experience! I can't wait to go back with some friends that have not yet experienced this ride of a lifetime.

Part of my ride home from Sturgis to Maryland via Yellowstone in Aug 1994. Great scenery, perfect weather, just a fantastic ride!!!!

A custom rigid/springer 96" stroker shovel with magneto ign. and foot clutch/hand shift. No problems the whole trip! Did wear out my back tire though! Sure would like to do it again sometime.................

Made the trip over Beartooth early September 2010. Sunny in Red Lodge and 45 degrees. cold (36 degrees) and rain on the other side. Weather changes fast so be prepared if you go in the fall. The following day the pass was closed due to heavy snow. What a beautiful ride. Maybe saw 6 vehicles and no bikes. Made the ride alone and certainly wish I could have shared this with the wife and riding neighbors. I have traveled all over the West and this was the best--so far. Next year Alaska.

Rode from West to East after leaving Gardner, Mt. Awesome ride to say the least, from the valleys of Yellowstone to the heights of Beartooth Pass and downward to Red Lodge. Incredible quality to the road.

212 from Red Lodge to Cooke City was awesome. My daughter and I rode it as part of a 4500 mile trip in the summer '09. The climb is endless and the views are intense. We saw marmots near the summit and were riding between snow fields in July. DRESS WARMLY!! The summit can be very cold. Crossing into WY. there are grizzly alerts which add to the excitement. We did see a few motorhomes but they were't a big issue. A little construction in July but understandable with the conditions this route sees. I knew we were in for a great ride and was not disappointed.

We took the ride East – West in early August and dropped over to Cody. Coming out of Red Lodge was not real exciting, but once we got into the mountains some really world class views. Hwy 296 back over to Cody was another worthwhile motorcycle ride.
