(25 miles - Montana side)
This 68-mile byway connects the charming communities of Red Lodge and Cooke City and serves as a western corridor to Yellowstone National Park. It's been called "the most beautiful drive in America," and rightly so, according to riders who have had the experience of riding here. Because of heavy snowfall at the top, the pass is usually open each year only from mid May through mid October, weather conditions permitting. The below route includes the first Montana portion of the road.
One of the few roads in the entire country that was built just to carry people to scenery. That would describe this tremendous 50 mile mountain road which carves through the Rocky Mountains in Glacier National Park. This two-lane road is quite narrow and winding, and features numerous hairpin turns. The road is so narrow, there are size restrictions on what vehicles can actually travel on it. (Not a problem for motorcycles!) There is stunning scenery to be seen, including massive glaciers, beautiful valleys, cascading waterfalls, towering mountains and colorful wildflowers all make this one of the greatest motorcycling roads in all of America.
Routes 12 (33 miles)
This is an absolutely beautiful motorcycle road in western part of the state. Not an overly technical ride, just amazing scenery from mountains rivers and streams as well as a few historical areas. This route continues into Idaho for more fantastic riding through the Nez-Perce Clearwater National Forest. The Montana side has a combination of long sweeping curves and tightly banked s-curves.
