Upper Big Timber Falls Professional Review and Guide

"The Crazy Mountains are an island mountain range surrounded by prairie on all sides, and they are also one of the easternmost ranges in Montana. Upper Big Timber Falls, the only significant trail-accessible waterfall in these mountains, drops through a rugged gorge with scenic views of 10,000-foot peaks behind it.

This is a superb destination as a short family day-hike or as a stopover for backpackers heading up to explore Granite Lake, Blue Lake, or other attractions in the Crazies. Big Timber Creek Trail begins on an old roadbed that makes walking easy. Even though it is not yet a designated wilderness area, motorized vehicles and bicycles are not allowed on this trail to preserve the wilderness experience. Big Timber Creek is popular with kayakers in the spring who brave the rapids and cascades when the water level is at its highest."
