Overview

The rugged Beartooth Mountains are Montana's highest mountain range. This beautiful range of the Rocky Mountains rises dramatically from the plains of south-eastern Montana and stretches to the northern reaches of Yellowstone National Park.

Now in its fourth edition, Day Hikes In the Beartooth Mountains includes an extensive collection of hikes within this mountain range and the adjacent foothills and plains. The eighty-seven hikes range from 11,000-foot alpine plateaus and peaks to treks along the Yellowstone River as it begins its journey through the arid plains (including sixteen new hikes around the Billings area). A wide range of scenery and ecosystems accommodates all levels of hiking, from relaxing creekside strolls to all-day, high-elevation outings.

The hikes lie within a 75-mile radius of Red Lodge, an active resort and ski town. The Beartooth Highway, heralded as "the most scenic highway in America" by Charles Kuralt, heads out of town into the Beartooth Mountains, connecting Red Lodge to Yellowstone Park. The 68-mile road hugs the mountain-side along curving switchbacks that traverse up, across and back down the alpine plateau.

A wide range of scenery and ecosystems accommodates all levels of hiking, from relaxing creekside strolls to all-day, high-elevation outings. All hikes can be completed during the day. Map sources and references are listed for extending the hikes.

Each hike includes:
• Detailed map
• Accurate driving and hiking directions
• Distance/time/elevation statistics
• Summaries to help hikers find a trail appropriate to their ability and desire
• Several overall maps to show the hikes in the greater area

Read an Excerpt

Clay Butte: The Clay Butte Overlook Trail begins at the 9,811-foot Clay Butte Fire Lookout, perched on the south tip of the butte. The panoramic views are as spectacular as you will find anywhere. The butte consists of sedimentary rock left by an ancient inland sea. The trail crosses the expansive alpine plateau, rich with wildflowers, to the north edge of the weathered cliffs. The Beartooth Mountains, Beartooth Butte, the Clarks Fork valley, the twisting Beartooth Highway, and the peaks of the Absaroka Range are all visible from this high mountain overlook. (followed by driving and hiking directions, map)

    Well written book, but no pictures

    This book is well written, very thorough, descriptive, and covers a lot of the area. The maps are nicely drawn, but I got a better idea of overall trail locations if I looked at my topo map while reading the book. The only thing this book is missing is pictures. There are no pictures to go along with the trails. I was able to search online for pictures of trails that caught my interest, which was very helpful. I also own the Falcon Guide to this region, which does have some pictures, and together, both books have given me a good understanding of this area. I look forward to hiking here.
