You can begin this two-day road loop tour in Deer Lodge, Drummond, Phillipsburg, Anaconda, or Gold Creek. You’ll be circling the Flint Creek Range, which trends southwest/northeast as it bisects the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest. On three sides of the loop you’ll ride in the valley and foothills surrounding the range; on the southern section of the loop, you’ll cut across the range between Anaconda and the resort area of Georgetown Lake.

This is an area rich in Montana history. At Deerlodge, don’t miss the Grant Kohrs Ranch, a well-maintained early homestead administered by the National Park Service. If you’re a car buff, plan to visit the Towe Ford Museum. And, the old Montana Prison is open for tours in Deerlodge. Anaconda, originally called "Copperopolis," was the site of Montana Copper King Marcus Daly's smelting operation.
