Beartooth Pass

Beartooth Pass

Beartooth Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.337m (10,947ft) above the sea level located in Park County, in northwest Wyoming, USA. The road over the pass, called the Beartooth Highway, is heralded as one of the most scenic drives in the United States.

The road over the pass is asphalted and takes you through some of the most stunning alpine scenery you'll ever see. There's quite a few switchbacks and quite curvy so does get harrowing at times. It's one of the highest roads of Wyoming.
The pass is usually open each year only from mid May through mid October. The road was opened on June 14, 1936. It is never very steep but contains amazing views down into the valley as you ascend multiple switchbacks.
