  • Lots of free access to the mountains. Enjoy them, stay a while. Improved and unimproved camp sites for the family  more »
  • We were advised we would see all kinds of wildlife. Unfortunately, we saw no wildlife except a squirrel. We had four of those in our backyard all winter in Ohio. It was a disappointing experience.  more »
  • Very close to town. Didn't stop or do any hiking, just passed through on trip to and from Deer Lodge but very nice, scenic drive,  more »

  • Great Divide is the very best ski area to go to. Lots of challenging terrain and easy to moderate terrain for skiers of all levels. Kevin & Nyla and all of their employees are so fabulous. Ski Patrol here ROCKS! Food, fun, Great beer and friends. What more could anyone want?
  • Poorly managed. Poor animal habitat do to mostly dead tree's and a large number of wolves. Poor road maintenance. Recent closers. Lost access do to dead tree's. In the last 30 years has gone from a health, beautiful, productive, usable Forrest to a ugly wasteland
  • Plenty of hiking trails and biking trails. The forest covers a very large area with plenty of events going on especially in the summer months. Hiking and biking maps can easily be.found online.
  • They hire con artists and criminal types for rangers. They tore down 73 of my trees when I wasn't on my property. They are still trying to steal my property. They won't even use due process as required of Federal agencies. They have intimidated me with guns and charges and I haven't broken a single law.
  • Beautiful day for xc skiing. Grateful for nicely groomed trails.
