Custer Gallatin National Forest

Things to SeeNational Forests
General info

The Custer Gallatin National Forest and National Grasslands range across 20 counties in Montana, South Dakota, and North Dakota and encompasses more than three million acres. The National Forest stretches over eight ranger districts. Mountains here range in elevation from below 1,000 feet in the Cheyenne Grasslands to the towering Granite Peak, the highest in Montana at 12,799 feet. The diversity in the landscape resulting from the vast expanse of the forest offers everything from dense wooded forests to meadows of alpine wildflowers and grasslands built on ancient sand dunes to rugged badlands.

The eight districts are:
