Why You Should Visit
Amazing old growth cedar trees. Some have been hollowed out naturally allowing unique access inside through the roots. Easy 1 mile loop suitable for children or elderly. Great picture opportunities. Very large trees.
No matter which way you approach the Ross Creek Giant Cedars on Route 56, from the north past Bull Lake or from the south along the Bull River, the journey is almost as good as the destination. With the Cabinet mountains and the most diverse forests in Montana on dispaly the whole trip you're never bored.
A short drive off of 56 brings you to the parking area. Before you're even out of the lot you get the feeling that you're entering a chapel. The magnificent cedars at Ross Creek soften the light, calm the breezes and mute conversations. There are few places that present a better opportunity to feel in touch with nature.
The Ross Creek cedars aren't on the way to anywhere. They aren't near anywhere. If you want to get lost in Montana this remote piece of paradise in our NW corner is a good bet.
