Other Names

Custer Gallatin National Forest, Beartooth Ranger District

Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Custer Gallatin National Forest offers miles of forest service roads and trails with varying degrees of difficulties that are open to motorized use. The trails offer numerous panoramic mountain and canyon views. Wild horses and ice caves are also among the area attractions.

Camping is available at Sage Creek Campground, which has 12 sites that can accommodate trailers up to 30 feet long. There is no direct off-road trail access from the campground so unless street legal, you will have to haul your bikes to and from the trailhead.
