Hero: Boulder Hill Ridge
small-sr Icon
Located in the Boulder Hills, west of I-15, Boulder Hill Ridge will take you up and down steep ascents along an open ridgeline that rewards you with incredible mountain views in all directions. The road travels from Amazon to Comet, passing a radio repeater station and crossing over the abandoned Boulder Train Tunnel known as the Wickes Tunnel. This road travels entirely along BLM land but provides views of both Helena National Forest and Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. The terrain is very steep on both sides of the road, not allowing many camping opportunities. However, a few flat and level areas exist and could be used for camping. The road is rough and rocky, with a few ruts from water runoff, requiring a high clearance vehicle. Additionally, the steep climbs will require a vehicle with a low-end transfer case.
