MT 13 in McCone County

MT 13 begins in the northeastern corner of Circle, where MT 200 also leaves town. From here to the Missouri River crossing south of Wolf Point, the highway is classified as part of the scenic Big Sky Back County Byway.[3] MT 13 proceeds in a northeasterly direction for a few miles before turning onto its main northerly orientation. The road travels through the eastern portions of McCone County, servicing the small community of Vida along the way. After crossing the Missouri River, the road enters Roosevelt County as well as the Fort Peck Indian Reservation and remains within the reservation’s boundaries for much of its remaining journey. Almost immediately, the route veers to the right at a Y-intersection with MT 25, which allows southerly access to and from Wolf Point, which lies to the west of MT 13. Shortly afterwards, after crossing the BNSF Railway‘s Northern Transcon, the highway crosses US Highway 2 (US 2), allowing northern access to Wolf Point. After another 32 miles (51 km),[1] the highway crosses into Daniels County, leaving the Fort Peck Indian Reservation a few miles later. A short distance after crossing the Poplar River, MT 13 enters Scobey and intersects with MT 5. From here, the highway has an unimpeded run to the International Boundary at the Port of Scobey, with the pavement continuing on into Canada as Saskatchewan Highway 36.[2]
