Welcome to the Ross Creek Cedars, Montana Picture Tour
Where did Ross Creek get its name? Once called Lighting Creek, this stream was renamed for prospector A.C Ross in the late 1920’s. If you’d been here then, you would have seen trappers and prospectors leading their pack animals along Ross Creek and far up into the drainage.
In 1960, the beauty and serenity of the giant Western Red Cedars were preserved for all to enjoy when the Ross Creek Scenic Area was established by Northern Regional Forester Charles L. Tebbe. The scenic 100-acre plot is closed to logging and mineral entry and is managed for its scientific and recreational values.
