In 1860, Apsaalooke (Crow) Chief Plenty Coups spent four days deep in the Crazies. While he was there, he had a vision that would shape the future of his homeland.

Montana is bear country, but being prepared and respectful can go a long way towards keeping you and bears safe when you're on the trail.

There’s still snow covering Montana’s high country, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of places to get out on the trail.
