Beartooth Loop National Recreation Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Located 74 miles northeast of Cody, 28 miles southwest of Red Lodge, Montana, and 41 miles east of Cooke City, Montana, in the southern Beartooth Mountains. A two-day trip along a high alpine ridge, through deep canyon meadows, and along several lakes.
There is a large signboard marking the trailhead, and the trail takes off down to the left of the sign. The ending pickup point is on U.S. Highway 212 at the upper end of Long Lake, 3 miles east of Island Lake, where a sign marks the end of the Beartooth Loop Trail."
