Wilderness Areas

The wilderness areas of southwest Montana offer a diverse collection of natural attractions. Some of the most famous areas are the Bob Marshall, Absaroka-Beartooth, Lee Metcalf, Bitterroot, and Gates of the Mountains Wildernesses. They are home to pristine alpine lakes, rugged mountain peaks, stunning valleys, abundant streams, unique geological features, and prehistoric sites.
