“trees over 400 years old & counting!”
Ross Creek Cedar is a grove of western red cedars, some of which are more than 8 feet in diameter. An interpretive walking tour, slightly less than a mile in length, explains the area ecology and history. Visitors to northwest Montana often find an ancient forest rivaling the spectacular beauty of the giant sequoias of northern California. Some trees in the grove are more than 400 years old.

It's a hidden gem and well-worth your time. Great for strolling, with its own microclimate. Forget about taking your trailer up here, it's a one-lane (but paved) road.
Location on this is pretty far off, it's off of highway 56 between Troy and Noxon near the beautiful Bull Lake. Wonderful place! A hidden gem tucked away in a giant mountain rock outcropping with pristine streams and the cleanest air you can imagine. Easy loop around that is mostly wheel chair accessible as well as a harder mountain trail for those looking for a harder adventure. Camping near-by at Bad Medicine (which itself has an interesting story, ask the hosts about it!) and good fishing at Bull Lake and many other nearby mountain lakes.
Take a look up the hollow cedar, very cool. Also carve your name on the fallen cedar.
