- General info
This mile wide and 17-mile long strip stretches along the north slopes of the Bear Paw Mountains. At 10,000 acres, it is one of the largest county parks in the country. Within its boundaries are rolling grasslands, pine woods, aspen and cottonwood groves, cold rushing streams, and rocky cliffs. The flora ranges from cool leafy cottonwood, aspen, lodgepole pine, ponderosa, and Douglas fir on the south end to box elder, willow, alder, and buffalo berry on the north end. Bear Paw Lake, Beaver Creek, and Lower Beaver Creek are well stocked with Rainbow and Brook trout. The park is teeming with wildlife including mule and white-tail deer, bobcat, coyote, beaver, fox, mink, grouse, pheasants, Golden Eagles, and hawks. The geology of the area varies from glacial deposits at the north end through volcanic strata and dikes, to metamorphic and sedimentary rocks full of fossils.
