Located in the Boulder Hills, about 30 minutes south of Helena, Wickes Road takes travelers down a historic stretch of road showcasing the rich mining history and railroad history that helped build western Montana. The trail offers a rare opportunity to traverse a 130-plus-year-old abandoned train tunnel, pass through once booming mining towns, and traverse open grassy hillsides now populated chiefly by cattle. If making a trip between Butte and Helena, be sure to make a slight detour down a road that is definitely an adventure of a lifetime that won't be around forever.
