Tips for Families
There are lots of switchbacks, so this is not a good option for those susceptible to motion sickness. Because of the high altitude, snowstorms can happen even in the middle of the summer, so check the weather and road conditions before you depart. Plan at least two hours for the drive from Red Lodge to Cooke City.
