Added by Kristi Teplitz

Whether you chose a day trip or a multi-day tour, the area around the Highwood Mountains is great for cycling.

Ride across high plains, over rolling hills, or even through mountain passes, all depending on how long you want to ride for. 

A popular day ride goes from Highwood, MT to Belt, MT and back. This 40-50 mile ride, whether you chose to make it a loop by riding back on a main road, or make it an out-and-back ride on the inner roads has nice roads and great views. Choose a day when the winds are lower so you have less headwind on your return. For more information about bike shops and beta for route options, here is a link:
