Between White Sulphur Springs and Armington Junction with US 87, US Route 89 is designated as the Kings Hill Scenic Byway as it winds through the Little Belt Mountains. One of the highlights of this section is Sluice Boxes State Park between Monarch and Armington. Between Armington and Great Falls, the highway crosses a broad valley of wheat fields.
Kings Hill Scenic Byway: Passing through the Lewis and Clark National Forest and the Little Belt Mountains, this 71-mile long section of US 89 offers many outdoor recreation opportunities from fly fishing in the summer to snowmobiling in the winter. One of the highlights is a short hike to Memorial Falls located about 1.5 miles south of Neihart.
Sluice Boxes State Park: Located 8 miles south of Armington Junction, this primitive state park contains the remains of mines, a railroad and historic cabins lining Belt Creek as it wind through a beautiful canyon carved in limestone. A seven-mile long trail winds through the park giving access to its rich history and spectacular geologic features.
