MacDonald Pass - Priest Pass Loop

MacDonald Pass - Priest Pass Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Located 15 miles west of Helena on US Highway 12, atop the Continental Divide. Good views from a challenging, seldom-used trail with a screaming descent on Priest Pass Road.

There's a good chance of seeing deer and other wildlife. Portions of this ride traverse private holdings, some of which may be posted against trespass. Please heed all posted property boundaries. Future access is uncertain."
