Favorite things to do

Etched by numerous rivers, North Central Montana is pocketed by small mountain ranges and gentle rolling hills and valleys. The Crazy Mountains, located at the southern edge of the region, are surrounded by hundreds of square miles of national forestland and offer numerous locations for hiking, fishing and skiing. The Musselshell River is a popular destination for game fishing, particularly cutthroat and mountain white fish. There are also numerous state parks throughout the North Central region that offer fly fishing. 

Elk hunting is popular in this region, which includes both public hunting areas and privately owned elk habitat. Antelope, mule and whitetail deer are also open at certain times of the year. Archery season in the North Central region extends from September to mid-October, while the rifle season takes place from mid-October to the end of November. 


Of the many historic trails that cross the North Central region, the Lewis and Clark trail, which traces the footsteps of the 19th-century explorers, is the most famous. But the region was also traversed by the Blackfeet Indians some 2,300 years earlier. Markers can be found along the trail outside Chocteau, Bynum and Dupuyer. The Nez Perce trail of 1877 marks the flight of the Nez Perce Indians following their skirmish with the US Calvary in what is now eastern Oregon

Great People. Amazing Views. Beautiful Landscapes

History buffs will also enjoy this region’s 30-plus museums, whose topics range from early pioneer life to classic western art. Of the most famous is the CM Russell Museum in Great Falls, which showcases the 19th century art of Charlie Russell, now world famous for his depictions of Montana pioneers.
