At the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park, Cooke City is an alpine village with snow much of the year.

It is perhaps most famous for the road that connects Cooke City with Red Lodge. Called “the most scenic drive in America” by Charles Kuralt, the Beartooth Pass Highway (US 212) traverses, with dramatic switchbacks, the spectacular Beartooth Range of south-central Montana. The pass is open only in summer months (approx. June-October); however, the town is accessible by the Mammoth Hot Springs entrance at Yellowstone Park (US Highway 89) in the winter. Impressive high mountain peaks and valleys abound.
