Plan a Spring Getaway at the Stunning Humbug Spires
The BLM’s Humbug Spires Wilderness Study Area is a 11,000+ acre roadless area, located 26 miles south of Butte, Montana. Impressive granite outcroppings, part of the Boulder Batholith, rise 300-600 feet and provide outstanding rockclimbing opportunities. A three-mile trail starts at the parking area, winds along the creek through an old-growth forest, and then climbs a ridge and eventually reaches the “Wedge" - one of the more prominent spires.
Recreation activities include hiking and rockclimbing, horseback riding, primitive camping, small stream fishing and photography. CLICK HERE to learn more about the area.
