Milwaukee Road Rail-Trail (Thompson Park)

How to Access the Pipestone Terminus of the Milwaukee Road R2T

September, 2022 by frango58

Take Rt. 2 to Pipestone Pass. Around MP 75.5 (about 1/4 mile north of the Pipestone Pass parking area on Rt. 2), look for a locked gate that says "Closed to Traffic". Go around the gate and DOWN the path for about 300 yards (you will probably have to walk this). You will see an informational kiosk next to the abandoned RR tunnel. The R2T starts here.

good ride

August, 2022 by shap

nice trail, needs some TLC, they have the biggest cracks and bumps marked for repair. Friendly town and people, worth the stop,

BA&P Hill Trail

Did It Again

August, 2022 by acewickwire

Rode these a couple years ago and enjoyed. Had opportunity to stop for a return visit. Once again not a disappointment. Nice trail, some other trail users but not many. Well worth the time.

BA&P Hill Trail

We rode from Rocker to the Memorial and back. The trail is gravel for a while and then paved. We enjoyed the signage along the way and learned a lot about the history of Butte and mining. We highly recommend!

We took electric scooters and did 16miles of this trail was so beautiful seen 6 deer 5 turkeys will glad go back and explore more

BA&P Hill Trail

great trail, well maintained

December, 2021 by ericabag

The trail from around Main Street to the Granite Mountain Monument is very steep, but they have benches everywhere. It’s totally worth doing this section. The views are spectacular, you can hopefully see deer and the monument is amazing. I get choked up every time I go

Headwaters Trail System

Disappointed

July, 2021 by joglazewski

For a trail with so much potential, this fell far short of expectations. Passes through beautiful scenery between a riverfront State Park, and cute little town.
Has not been given the attention it deserves. Asphalt surface cracked with painful gullies and erosions, NO signage. We rode back on a road with light traffic, but no shoulder and 70 mph speed limit to avoid having to ride this surface again.

BA&P Hill Trail

Great trail, but very steep!

July, 2021 by elwoodmr

This trail will take you to the top of Butte, to the Memorial, and while it is very steep, it is worth it to take in the views. There are nice little signs along the way which talk about the history of mining and Butte. At the bottom, it ends at the Museum of Mining, which is a great underground tour.

Ulrich-Schotte Nature Trail (Blacktail Creek Trail)

Needs some updating

July, 2021 by elwoodmr

The portion of the trail that runs along I-90 could really use some updating. Many portions of the pavement are buckled from the surrounding tree roots. But the portion that goes up towards the Pit, is nicely paved and wide.

Silver Bow Creek Greenway

I love this trail!

June, 2021 by kzod

This is a great, well-maintained trail that links to some other great trails. I hope the whole system is completed soon!

Milwaukee Road Rail-Trail (Thompson Park)

Fun trail!

June, 2021 by kzod

This is such a fun trail! The trestle is HUGE the tunnels are LONG and cold even on a hot day. Definitely bring a light for the tunnels. We didn't the first time we did this and just pointed the bikes in the direction of the light at the end of the tunnel (probably not the smartest thing, but it was fine). Even in July we've encountered thick ice in the tunnels. Getting from the parking lot down to the trail is steep, but the rest of the trail has a very gentle grade.
