BLM Re-Opens Moose Creek Road


The Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office has re-opened Moose Creek Road south of Butte after repairing flood damage on one section of the road.

Workers excavated a spring which had eroded a channel across the road and put in drain tile.

"The road might still be soft in some places, but it’s passable," said Butte Field Manager Scott Haight.

Moose Creek Road, off I-15, is the most popular route to access the Humbug Spires, a favorite hiking and climbing destination.

For more information, call the Butte Field Office at (406) 533-7600.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
