Rogers Pass

About Rogers Pass, Glacier National Park

Rogers Pass rises 5,610 feet (1,710 m) above sea level and is located on the Continental Divide in the U.S. state of Montana. The pass is adjacent to Helena National Forest and is traversed by Montana Highway 200. Wide shoulders provide parking for those wishing to hike the Continental Divide Trail. Bicyclists should note that the wide shoulders are limited to the very top and will not be found elsewhere on 200. The pass is the best route between the cities of Great Falls and Missoula, Montana—more than 800 feet (244 m) lower than Lewis and Clark Pass, 5.3 miles (8.5 km) to the northwest, which was used by Meriwether Lewis of the eponymous expedition on July 7, 1806. Rogers Pass is known for being the location of the coldest recorded temperature in the United States outside of Alaska. On January 20, 1954, a temperature of -70 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded. Rogers Pass is more than 100 miles (160 km) south of Marias Pass, and there are no other roads that cross the Continental Divide between these two passes. The region between the two passes is mostly wilderness, and the majority of it has been set aside and protected from future development. The Great Bear, Scapegoat and Bob Marshall Wildernesses have been consolidated into the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and permanently protect 1,535,352 acres (6,213.35 km2). The region is noted for its inaccessibility and as one of the last strongholds for the grizzly bear in the lower 48 states. The Scapegoat Wilderness is a 10 miles (16 km) hike north of Rogers Pass via the Continental Divide Trail.
