Beartooth Highway

We just got back from Montana and pulling the 15A over the Beartooth Highway. Check your rig (especially your brakes) if you decide to go. A gorgeous area to explore and not nearly as busy as Yellowstone.

Are there any trailer length restrictions for Beartooth?

Not that I saw. Grades are up to 10%. East to west direction is recommended by some gurus on the internet (I would agree). Some very nice and uncrowded forestry campgrounds along the way.

Been on our bucket list for some time now; our last trip out was too early in the season. I got an alert on my phone recently that it had closed due to snow but evidently this time of year only results in short closures-usually one day.

I've only done the Beartooth Highway on a motorcycle (highly recommended). I'm guessing that doing 40mph on a 20mph corner isn't as much fun while towing a trailer.

We have driven this magnificent highway a few times over the years. Most memorable was pulling my big fold down fully loaded over the top with the 82 Buick. The Buick was up to it and went on for another 70 thousand before I traded her. Trailer weighed 2900 with surge brakes and it snowed for about an hour up towards the top. My Dad was fond of saying "Easy does it". He hauled gasoline in the Ardennes in 1944. Made pulling the Beartooth and all other challenging highways seem possible to me. Nice Pictures

Nothing better than the Rocky Mountains, Canadian or In the U.S.A.. Especially on $2.00 gasoline. $1.96 this AM in Eastern Iowa. North South through Montana. Highway 89. East/West in Idaho, the highway between Kooskia and the Lolo Pass along the middle form of the Clearwater and the Lochsa River. My favorites.

I had friends in the early 1960s who would take pack horses from Woodbine campground to Cooke City. No Dometic issues back then!!!!! Cheers Peter
