Know Before You Go
The spot is east of I-15 as you head north from Butte. You can see the Lady any time from a distance (she’s very big), but bring binoculars if you plan to see from the roadside. Plus it’s lit up at night, and well worth the wait.
From June through October there are scheduled tours directly up to the site, including the Lady, the Chapel and the Wall of Women monument. To get this close, private vehicles are not permitted, so taking a tour is by bus traveling from the gift shop at the Butte Plaza Mall (3100 Harrison Ave). The round trip takes two and a half hours (weather permitting), and to make reservations call 406-782-1221. Check the website for admission fees and other details.
