Hogback Mountain

Hogback Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Located 30 miles as the crow flies northeast of Helena at the north end of the Big Belt Mountains. Absolutely spectacular 360 degree views from atop 7,813-foot Hogback Mountain. On a clear day, the views reach from the Anaconda-Pintlers in the southwest to the Highwoods in the northeast.

With the Helena Valley and Canyon Ferry spread out below, and the Elkhorns, Gates of the Mountains Wilderness, and Big Belts folded all around, it's like looking down on one of those 3-D molded plastic relief maps. The fire lookout is staffed from July through September."
