Bear Tooth Pass

Out of this world scenery on Bear Tooth Pass out the Northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park , Don't drive your RV on this route , wow it's almost like riding a roller coaster at a slower speed, you can get out of your vehicle and touch the snow caps , and the view is Fantastic , if anyone is in this area by all means travel this road.

I was there when I was 17 yo. Beautiful area. Great trout fishing in the lakes above Silver Gate, MT. Stayed in a cabin just outside of there for 10 days. Explored some of the abandoned gold mines. Just inside of Yellowstone there is a great trout hole called Ice Box Canyon. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

It is beautiful for sure. We drove it in a 36' Winnebago Journey pulling a Ford Explorer.... from Red Lodge, MT all the way into Yellowstone. So, it can be done in your RV if you and your equipment are up to it.

We workamped at Jackson Hole WY one season. All I heard that summer was DO NOT take your motorhome over Beartooth Pass. So when we left ........ yep you guessed it. Took a 38' gasser (our previous rig) w/toad over Beartooth.

I rode Bear Tooth Pass a couple of years ago 2-up on our motorcycle. It was a beautiful ride on the second day after the pass opened for the season. In spots, we drove through a trench that was only a few feet wider than the road and sheer vertical walls of snow 20 ft high on both sides.

Though a wonderful ride on the bike, I don't think I'll be driving my 43 ft w/toad through there anytime soon.

From Red Lodge up the switchbacks and over to Cooke City is certainly doable in a motorhome. I would certainly not do it west to east and would exit onto the Chief Joseph Highway,.
