Forbes and Only In Your State have named this Montana Highway the Most Dangerous in America, followed by “Montana’s Most Beautiful Drive.”

The speed limit, which is advertised as 70 mph, is often ignored during the summer and fall seasons, making this highway at times more dangerous than others. We all know that the faster you drive, the harder it is to stop suddenly when you encounter unexpected turns or wildlife.

Highway 2 has also been dubbed the “Most Beautiful Drive Through Montana.”

Highway 2 runs through all of northwest Montana and into the beautiful neighboring state of North Dakota. Highway 2 is over 600 miles long; If you were going to do this road trip through Montana, it would take you at least 11 hours if you didn’t stop.

Highway 2 takes you past lakes and mountains and through some of Montana’s cutest towns, including the perfect little hill towns of Libby and Shelby. Your journey ends as you drive through the final town of Bainville; After Bainville you will reach the North Dakota border.

This could be the perfect long weekend road trip for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of I-90. I highly recommend getting a dash cam so you can capture the changing landscape of our beautiful state.
