Welcome to Vida, Montana

Vida is an isolate prairie town between Circle and Wolf Point. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company)

Vida is located along the Big Sky Back Country Byway, which links the two major rivers in the state, the Yellowstone and the Missouri in eastern Montana. This route follows a section of the historic Regina-Yellowstone (R-Y) Trail, which tourists from Canada used to reach Yellowstone National Park. The north-south orientation of the trail will give you a glimpse of dry land farming, rolling prairie grassland, scenic scoria buttes, and badlands terrain. The Byway has information kiosks located in Terry, Circle, and Wolf Point to inform you of local opportunities and history of the area. The entire route is well marked with directional signs and is approximately 105 miles long.
