Montana Gravel Routes

5 Star Routes

5 Star routes are our premier routes. They are the kind of route that you think, “Wow! That was cool.” So we invest a heck of a lot of time and energy to provide you all the nitty-gritty details of the route: Pictures, micro-videos, history, cool facts, and a detailed route description. We want you to be just as excited about this route as we are … but more importantly, we want you to have a good idea of what you are getting into before you go.

Development Routes

Development routes vary from a somewhat detailed guide to a guide with maybe a picture or two, a brief description, and a map. What we know, we try to include in the guide. When we post a Development Route, we are 75% sure that it “goes”. But … just in case, bring a sense of adventure. Sometimes it really doesn’t work out …

Bikepacking Routes

Mixing the thrill of gravel biking with the freedom of backpacking one gets bikepacking, also known as mixed-surface touring. Our routes are generally adventure oriented and explore places less traveled.

Alts & Options

Routes that are a combination, a shortening or lengthening of existing 5 Star routes. They are still of 5 Star quality; however, these route guides have less detail. We do not include information on terrain and riding, points of interest or ride notes. We refer you back to the original routes for this information. We highly encourage you to look at the original routes before embarking on an Alts & Options route.
