The Vigilante Trail, originally dedicated in 1924, provides a corridor for Montana tourists from Butte to West Yellowstone. The Butte Chamber chose to identify the road with marker with 3-7-77, the code that is known as the vigilante code. A code that theoretically served as a warning for frontier ruffians and criminals to leave the area immediately – or else. The trail cuts through the heart of Southwest Montana. The Vigilante Trail will take travelers along the road that was frequented by so many of the early Montana settlers. Rich in territorial history, outdoor recreational opportunities, and genuine Montanan hospitality, a trip along the Vigilante Trail will provide a memorable experience for all visitors.
