Philipsburg is a small town (population 930) in Southwest Montana located 30 miles to the northwest of Anaconda just off Montana Highway 1, a highway also known as the Pintler Scenic Route.

The Pintler Scenic Route is an attractive alternative to the section of Interstate 90 between Butte and Missoula if the traveler has the time and inclination to take a somewhat slower and relaxed drive rewarded by beautiful scenery.

The town is approximately 78 miles from Missoula which is served by Delta, Horizon, and Northwest Airlines, and 52 miles from Butte, with air service provided by Delta and Horizon airlines.   If driving from Missoula eastbound on I-90, take the Drummond exit to Montana Highway 1 and follow it some 25 miles to Philipsburg.  If driving westbound from Butte on Interstate 90, take Highway 1 through the town of Anaconda and follow it.
