This trail has gotten a little tougher, so we’ll be upping the rating from easy to moderate. I drove the trail on March 14 and ran into about a foot of snow at Waypoint 03. I was forced to turn back along with many UTVs. I went back two weeks later and got through with no problems. With all that melting snow and rain the trail was gorgeous with lots of wildflowers and a lot of water flowing in the normally dry washes. There are many OHV trails inside the Montana Mountain loop and this area has become a very popular OHV area complete with developed staging areas and good signage. Hewitt Station Road is now permanently closed between Waypoints 6 and 1, but bypass trails are shown on posted maps.
