Day 12 Townsend to Harlowton – 99.4 miles

30 Jun
Day 12 Townsend to Harlowton 99.4 miles - Through the heart of Montana

The route was gentle rolling hills with epic views of the sky and flat-lands on top of the mountains.

Through the Helena National Forest we head east on Route 12 up and down several mountains that were gentle enough to be called rolling hills. The trip traveled through White Sulfur Springs, a town with flowing hot springs. The water was very hot to the touch and smelled like rotten eggs. It was exciting to see this natural water coming from springs on the land with a rapid flow. The locals capture the water for sulfur swimming and hot tubs.

Breakfast was at the Mint in Townsend, Mt.
