Logging Creek Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The two routes into Logging Creek are as diverse as the countryside. On the tamer ride along MT 227, your teeth won’t chatter nearly as much as they will on the narrow, single-lane track called Logging Creek Road. If you’re in a rental car or borrowed a good friend’s Lexus, you should seriously consider the highway route, unless you’re willing to risk your insurance or your friendship. Logging Creek is tucked on the northern edge of the Little Belt Mountains. Your drive in will be a visual education about the Madison Limestone Formation that makes the views around this campground worth the drive.

This formation lies beneath much of Montana’s surface and is unique because of the many caves, fissures, and seams that allow water to run through it. It’s like a giant slab of Swiss cheese. Water enters above the surface but in some places moves beneath the surface and splits off in many directions, all the while continuing to flow downhill. Surrounding this limestone formation are other geologic formations that developed before and after the limestone; these formations seal the water into the porous rock channel."
