POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - Members of the American Motorcyclist Association have voted the Beartooth Highway as their favorite stretch of road in the U.S.
The winding, mountain highway climbs nearly 6,000 feet between Red Lodge, Mont., and Cooke City, Mont. Part of the route dips into Wyoming just east of Yellowstone National Park.
Riders who wrote to the magazine said they enjoyed the route's curves and mountain scenery.
The Powell Tribune reports that association members voted for their favorite roads through the association's website. The Beartooth beat out nearly 100 other roadways.
