A top contender for the most dramatic route into Yellowstone Park, the Beartooth Highway connects Red Lodge to Yellowstone’s Northeast Entrance by an incredible 68-mile journey alongside 11,000ft peaks and wildflower-sprinkled alpine tundra. It has been called America’s most scenic drive and its premier motorcycle ride.

There are a dozen USFS campgrounds along the highway, four within 12 miles of Red Lodge, as well as some of Montana's finest backpacking routes.
