Boulder River Road: Big Timber to Box Canyon and Back to Big Timber Professional Review and Guide

"This 50-mile drive on both paved and gravel roads takes you from Big Timber toward the heart of the Absaroka–Beartooth Mountains. The route follows the Boulder River, passing hay fields and a gate-like wall of mountains with cliffs and other geologic features before reaching a wilderness area boundary.

The Boulder River Road is a one-way-in, one-way-out drive on mostly gravel road that is slow going and rough in spots. But this route is worth the trip if your vehicle can handle it, taking you right into the heart of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. You’ll find several wilderness access trails, campgrounds, and plenty of fishing opportunities. The end of the road is a well-used trailhead for horsepackers."
