Homestake Pass

Homestake Pass is an epic road in the Rocky Mountains

Homestake Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.954m (6,410ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary of Jefferson and Silver Bow counties, in the US state of Montana.

Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains within the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Interstate 90. It is the highest point on the 4.861km (3,020 miles) highway.

The pass sits on the Continental Divide. It’s 39.91km (24.8 miles) long, running west-east from Butte (the county seat of Silver Bow County) to Whitehall, a town in Jefferson County. When the snow falls - which it does in the winter – things get tough and slippery.
