UPDATE DECEMBER 2018: Due to bridge construction, the John and Margaret Craighead Hut is temporarily closed.
Located high above the Missouri River valley, the Founders Hut has views of numerous Central Montana mountain ranges. Two track roads are ideal for hiking, biking, and winter cross-country skiing. From April to October 19th it is possible to reach the hut via 4WD vehicle in dry conditions. October 20th through March (spring date is weather dependent) the hut is accessed by way of a 6.75-mile walk, bike or ski. All water must be packed in or melted down from snow/ice (if available). During winter months, this destination is for experienced backcountry travelers only.
