Big Snowy mountains In Lewis and Clark National Forest
The Lewis and Clark National Forest is divided into the eastern half known as the Jefferson Division and the western half known as the Rocky Mountain Division. The Jefferson Division or Eastern half lies to the east and south of Great Falls and is surrounded by private and other federal and state lands. The Jefferson Division is comprised of six mountain ranges which are: The Highwood Mountains - northeast of Great Falls .

The Big Snowy mountains don't look like much from a distance, but once in them, they quickly become quite rugged, steep, and beautiful. The Little Snowy Mountains is east of the Big Snowy Mountains. The Jefferson Division land is characterized by open grassland parks along ridges with scattered timber. Rugged, rocky crests with prominent cliffs and slopes mark the entire area. It is well-forested with Douglas-Fir, Lodgepole Pine and Ponderosa Pine. Spruce and Fir types dominate the upper of the mountains. The Rocky Mountain Division or western half extends south of Glacier Park and east from the Continental Divide.
