GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service has banned motorized travel on 186 miles of trails in the Badger-Two Medicine area along the Rocky Mountain Front.

The decision, announced Monday, is part of a travel plan for that section of the Lewis and Clark National Forest.

Forest Supervisor Spike Thompson said few places in the country rival the solitude, wildlife viewing and hunting and fishing opportunities in the 130,000-acre Badger-Two Medicine area, which is sacred to the Blackfeet Tribe.
