Beartooth Plateau


The Clarks Fork Ranger District encompasses much of the Beartooth Plateau, which is located in northwest Wyoming, near Yellowstone National Park.

The Beartooth Plateau gets its name from Beartooth Peak, which has the appearance of a bear's tooth.

The scenery here is breathtaking - rugged mountain peaks and expansive plateaus, alpine tundra, glaciers, wildlife, wildflowers, and rare land types found nowhere else in the United States. Travel the Beartooth All-American Road, U S Highway 212, to take in the views. (The road is closed in the winter.)
