Read an Excerpt

Hike 50: Clay Butte Overlook from the Beartooth Highway. The Clay Butte Overlook Trail begins at the 9,811-foot Clay Butte Fire Lookout perched on the south tip of the butte. 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, offering a unique view of the backside of Beartooth Butte. The panoramic views are as spectacular as you will find anywhere. The Beartooth Mountains, Beartooth Butte, the Clarks Fork Valley, the twisting highway, and the peaks of the Absaroka Range are all visible from this high mountain overlook. At the lookout tower are interpretive displays of the 1988 Yellowstone Fires, the impact which can be seen from the lookout.
