Absaroka Range

The Absaroka Range makes up the eastern boundary of the Yellowstone National Park, and was named after the Indian tribe of the same name.

Crazy Mountains

Located to the east of Bozeman, the Crazy Mountains ("Crazies") are home to mountain goats and wolverines, alpine lakes, and are drier and less densely forested than most other Montana ranges due to their easterly location. 

Madison Range

Located in the Rocky Mountains, the Madison Range was named by Meriwether Lewis after then future-president James Madison, and lies in the westernmost section of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Gallatin Range

The Gallatin Range is home to large numbers of endangered species and ancient petrified forests.

Bridger Mountains

Located just north and east of Bozeman, most of the Bridger range is within the Gallatin National Forest. These local mountains are home to the most noteworthy peaks around Bozeman, including Saddle, Mount Baldy, Hardscrabble, Sacajawea, and Ross Peaks. 

Madison River

The Madison River is a river that is long enough to be categorized into four sections: Madison River in Yellowstone National Park, Yellowstone National Park Boundary to Quake Lake, Upper Madison- Quake Lake to Ennis Lake and Lower Madison- Ennis Lake to Three Forks. The river makes for a great paddle if you like rapids, a scenic mellow float and great fishing.
