Follow WY-296 48-miles to the junction with WY-120 and turn right 16-miles to Cody, or left to return to Red Lodge by way of Belfry, MT.

- Description: A pinnacle of granite called the Bear's Tooth, which gives its name to the range of mountains surrounding it. This vantage point is from the saddle between the East and West Summits of the Beartooth Highway, US-212, and actually lies in Wyoming, looking at an angle into Montana.
- Gear: A good vehicle, tripod, multiple memory cards, layered clothing and good boots.
