Skip The Hiking Boots And Simply Drive Up To These Magnificent Montana Mountains

Montana has around 100 named mountain ranges, which means we have an abundance of mountain hikes in the Treasure State. But hiking is not everyone’s cup of tea, and luckily, there are plenty of back roads and byways that show off our mountainous scenery. For example, the Big Snowy Mountains Backcountry Drive takes you along the eastern and southern base of the Big Snowy Mountains, almost entirely by a gravel road.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

This drive is extremely remote, and you won’t see much traffic on the route. But if you can’t make it to Lewistown anytime soon, these Montana backroads are also perfect for a nice rural drive.
