  • We were looking forward to checking out the Lookout Tower but the road leading to the Tower was being used as a staging area and parking for the construction crew.

  • On our way to Beartooth pass , we saw this firetower WAAAAY up on the mountain top...I'm sooo glad we turned in to check it out. Its a fairly good climb, probably 2!/2 miles and steep in some places....  more

  • Even if all you do is drive to the top, walk around and drive back, its worth the short drive up the dirt road. Just don't be an imbecile on that road. In many places its not wide enough for side-by-side driving.
  • Drive the road with caution.
