More about Stillwater County
Stillwater County is a small community with so much to offer
Explore the Stillwater Valley…a 75 mile stretch of two lane roads which starts at Columbus, travels through Absarokee to Fishtail/Dean and Nye. Discover our “Hidden Valley”, where you’ll find the surroundings peaceful and the scenery breathtaking.
The Lewis and Clark Expedition covered more miles in Montana than in any other state, not because of its size, but because the Corps split into four parties for the 1806 return trip, each with a different assignment and route. Follow Clark’s return through Reed Point, Columbus and Park City to Pompey’s Pillar National Historic Monument, the only surviving physical evidence of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
Travel to Rapelje and Molt, where the wildlife outnumber the people! Visit the Hailstone and Halfbreed National Wildlife Refuges, unique recreational and sight seeing opportunities.
On your way to Yellowstone National Park? Take the most scenic route…”Gateway to the Beartooth Highway,” described by Charles Kuralt as “one of the ten most scenic roads in the world.” You’ll find it’s an easy day trip traveling MT Hwy 78 to Red Lodge and US Hwy 212 over Beartooth Pass to Yellowstone …or just come and explore Stillwater County!
