This 88-mile drive follows Montana’s High-Line, the name given the railroad (and the highway) in this part of the state. You will pass hay fields and prairie, and are more likely to see trains along the old Great Northern Railway tracks than cars on the road. Hundreds of pothole lakes host migrating waterfowl and shorebirds. The terrain is mostly flat, dissected with shallow coulees and topped with low buttes. This country sees lots of waterfowl as they make their migrations north and south along the flyway. Northeast of Harlem is Black Coulee National Wildlife Refuge, another place where waterfowl and shorebirds rest up on their long journeys south or north. Special attractions: Black Coulee National Wildlife Refuge, Bears Paw Battleground, Fort Assiniboine, Wahkpa Chu’gn Archeological Site, Havre Beneath the Streets, Montana State University–Havre campus; hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and camping. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
