A large roadless area with major streams and 1,000-foot limestone cliffs. Of all the large roadless areas in Montana, the Middle Fork of the Judith River may be the least known to hikers, not because it doesn’t offer good hiking, because it does. The 81,000-acre de facto wilderness has great stream fishing, a large wildlife population, and vistas to rival any wild area.
