This 83-mile scenic drive goes through the heart of Montana’s wheat-growing region, scattered with buttes and coulees. Here you understand why Montana is called the Big Sky State, with vast blue heavens above thousands of acres of prairie. The beauty of this drive is that this, along with many other parts of the state, looks much the way it did a century ago. Except cattle have replaced bison, and hay now grows where prairie grasses did.
Special attractions: Snowy Mountains, Crystal Lake, Judith River wildlife area, Crazy Mountains, Big Timber, Victorian Village Museum, Ackley Lake State Park; fishing, boating, and wildlife viewing. 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.
