POWELL, Wyo. (AP) — Members of the American Motorcyclist Association have voted the Beartooth Highway as their favorite stretch of road in the U.S.

The winding, mountain highway climbs nearly 6,000 feet between Red Lodge, and Cooke City. Part of the route dips into Wyoming just east of Yellowstone National Park.

Riders who wrote to the magazine said they enjoyed the route’s curves and mountain scenery.

The Powell Tribune reports that association members voted for their favorite roads through the association’s website. The Beartooth beat out nearly 100 other roadways.|Frontpage

If all goes as so far planned, will be there in June. One of my bucket-list sites for sure.
Reservations already made on both ends.
Pictures I've seem look awesome.

Be prepared to be blown away andfor a fair bit of snow at the pass in June.

If you can, I suggest you combine the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway, out of Cody, WY, which connects to the western end of the Beartooth. Then thereare the Bighorns, Yellowstone NP, the Grand Tetons NP, all within a days ride.

You just can't go wrong in that area. You need a solid 5 days in the Cody area, to see the 'Highlights'(Grand Tetons/Yellowstone/Bighorns/Cheif Joseph Scenic Byway/Beartooth Pass)

Cheif Joseph Scenic Byway. Dead Indian Pass ......

Beartooth Pass .....

Western edge of the Bighorns, along the Medicine Wheel Passage Hwy 14A .....

Yep, the roads out that way are great to travel on. Be careful, as someone else said for snow at the top. We were there in July and it was very cool at the summitt.
