General info

From Philipsburg, drive south six miles on Montana Highway 1. (Pintler Scenic Highway) to Montana Highway 38 (Skalkaho Highway) where the driver will take you to Hamilton, approximately a 65-mile drive one way. The drive is very scenic and will take you over Skalkaho Pass, passing a waterfall and picnic area. The drive provides wildlife viewing and fishing opportunities in many of the Creeks on the way to Hamilton. The highway is open from June to September depending on snow conditions. Contact the Forest Service office in Philipsburg for road conditions prior to leaving. The road is generally open to two-wheel vehicles, without trailers, but has narrow road widths in some places.
