Clay Butte Fire Lookout
Built in 1942 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, this lookout was used until the 1960s when aircraft surveillance proved a better tool for fire detection. The tower is open to the public and provides beautiful 360-degree views.
Top of the World Resort
At 9,400 feet, the Top of the World Resort is the only stop along the Beartooth Highway to purchase souvenirs, gas, and supplies. Visitors enjoy numerous recreational activities here, including hiking, hunting, bird watching, and fishing. (Even in the summer months, snowball fights are common.)
