National Wilderness Areas in Montana

Sawtooth Mountains

Montana has some incredible wilderness areas. The biggest is "the Bob," the 1-million-acre-plus wilderness in the center of the 1.5 million-acre Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex (which includes the Great Bear and Scapegoat Wildernesses). The smallest is the Medicine Lake Wilderness, managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. A hint of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness spills across the state line into Wyoming and about 1/5th of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness spills across the Idaho state line into Montana.
