This is one of the best motorcycle routes in the Pacific Northwest. The sign on the west side of the top of the pass reads "99 miles of windy road". Lots of bicycles on the road every time I've been there.
This is a very scenic part of Montana - of course, most of this part of the country is scenic. We really liled the drive and wished we could have driven the whole route but time constraints mleant we only drove a little over half. We saw a baby moose come down the mountain to the highway!
