With only a few exceptions, through central and eastern Montana you will be riding on long, straight sections of U.S. 2 following the route of Burlington Northern railroad built in the 1800's. Traffic is light to moderate. Leaving the "Hi-Line" near Wolf Point, MT, the route heads southeast crossing the Yellowstone River at Glendive, MT, where you'll follow the I-94 corridor to Dickinson, ND. Portions of this route are contiguous with the Lewis & Clark Trail.

July 1, 2011, I will be cycling 4,000 miles across USA & Canada, solo, self-contained. Northern Tier, Section 3 looks very good. I will keep you folks and America posted about how Sections One and Three work out, especially with the increased tanker-truck traffic in Eastern MT and Western ND. Your organization has been a tremendous resource for me and will continue to be. Thanks, Brian G. Phelps -Phelps's Mission Possible
