Cabinet Mountain Wilderness of Northwest Montana

Wilderness Hikes ~ Photography

Nestled in the heart of the Bull Lake Valley guest staying at KRO have
access to the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness and Scotchman Peaks
"right out their door". Montana's beautiful Yaak River Valley lies a short distance to the north. This is a nature photographers paradise.

You may spend your time day hiking to one of the many lakes
or streams in the area. Or hike some of the miles of trails and
roads on our property. It's your choice as the opportunities are many.

Wildlife abounds here and chances for sightings happen regularly.

The Cabinet Mountains of Northwest Montana are some of the
least traveled yet most beautiful in the country.
As many of our guests have said over the years
"this is as good as Glacier or Yellowstone...without the people!"

Running roughly 150 miles from the north end of the
Bitterroots and almost to British Columbia they encompass some
of the most remote and untouched land left in the lower 48.

The Cabinet Yaak ecosystem is home to some of the last free roaming
Grizzly bear and Wolf populations in the lower 48.

The 95,000 acre Cabinet Mountain Wilderness is the backdrop scene
from anywhere on the property. With peaks towering to 8,738 feet,
miles of streams, waterfalls, lakes and a life times worth of trails it is
truly a gem seen mostly from afar. But for those willing to take a
bit of time and explore, endless opportunities await.

Out the "back end" of our property lies the 130,000 acres of the
remote and almost road-less (just 1) area of the Scotchman Peaks.
Though not designated wilderness it is beautiful in its own right.
There are many more forest service trails leading to
high peaks, lakes, streams, and water falls.

All of this area is encompassed by the millions of acres that make
up the Kootenai National Forest and many more adventures await there too.
Hikes in both the CMW and SP's range from an easy 1 to 2 hour walk,
to strenuous multi day trips that can put you into country that may
not have seen another soul for months, maybe years.
