I hadn't given Chief Joseph Highway much consideration, given its proximity to Bear Tooth Pass, but after riding the two back-to-back last July I have a real appreciation for its beauty. Like others here have said, it may not be as challenging as BTP, but it is definitely worth the time, even if it means going out of your way and/or retracing a prior route.

How many places can you go 100 mi between towns? The senery is specktacular the road good enough to enjoy the scenery. Not so many switchbacks as Beartooth Pass (I don't like doing 50 miles of twitchbacks)... one of the most beautiful rides in America.

Beartooth Pass gets the most rider press and Chief Joseph Highway plays second fiddle. Personally, this should be reversed and the few locals I met think the same. Beartooth is good, but Chief Joe is better both for the road and the scenery - 5 star stuff.

Too right about gassing up (petrol), however there is one campground pump on the route nearer the Beartooth intersection in the north.

So much nice riding to do out in this area!!
Gas is scarce so don pass up a chance to stretch and fill up.
If heading East continue into Cody then towards Buffalo via Bighorn National Forest along route 16.
