The southeast corner of the Big Snowy Mountains contains a Bureau of Land Management wilderness study area that’s worth exploring. The land is just off Red Hill Road, which divides the Big and Little Snowies, so access is pretty easy. Once off the road, however, much of the hiking is without trails through often thick forest. The benefits are that the region attracts few visitors, there are some great views across the valley to the Bull Mountains and some impressive limestone cliffs. The land also contains mule deer, elk, bear and mountain grouse. To learn more about the area, check out my story at https://billingsgazette.com/outdoors/investigating-the-big-snowies-crew-conducting-wilderness-character-monitoring-on-blm-land/article_e359f7df-aa6a-5ea4-a56b-de41434e82e4.html.
