The Yaak River Valley

The Yaak River Scenic Drive is a twenty-nine mile, paved route that leads into the remote and seldom visited Yaak region of Montana. The route follows Highway 508, and runs between US Highway 2 and the tiny town of Yaak, Montana.

Highlights of the drive include decent vistas of the unique and heavily forested Yaak region of Montana, theĀ Yaak River, and the very scenic Yaak Falls. While the views from this scenic drive do not compare to other drives in Montana, anyone who is passing through this part of Montana on US Highway 2 (a popular route to enter Montana from Idaho), should absolutely take this short and quick drive. Additionally, those who want a more thorough and scenic journey into the Yaak region can create a loop drive by using some of the other highways in the area (see map below).
