After crossing the Sunlight Bridge this route climbs up the Beartooth Mountains.  Riders will follow th ridgetop before dropping down to Lamar Valley and into Yellowstone National Park at Roosevelt Lodge.


Inside Yellowstone, the route follows the Grand Loop Road South past Tower Falls, Mount Washburn and Canyon Village to the Fishing Bridge.  At Fishing Bridge, the route leaves Yellowstone on Highway 14 to Cody.
