This railroad destination point turned farming and ranching community is home to just over 100 residents. The Stockman Cafe is a central, local-favorite gathering place where these friends and family have meals together and welcome visitors for events like 24 Hours of Rapelje, a USA Cycling sanctioned endurance mountain bike race held every June.
Nearby Big Lake Complex offers two wildlife refuges–Hailstone and Halfbreed. It's one of the most productive waterfowl areas in central Montana, perfect for bird-watching and hiking. There's also a black-tailed prairie dog town on the east side of the lake, and you may even spot pronghorn antelope in the area. Bring your binoculars.
