Visitation

Hoodoo Mountain WSA is located in the crest of the eastern end of the Garnet Range in Powell County approximately 55 miles east of Missoula, MT.   Access to the WSA is off of Highway 141.  From Highway 141 take the Braziel Creek Road, which is west of the Nevada Creek Reservoir, for approximately 2 ½ miles until it meets with the Windy Rock Jeep Trail.  The Windy Rock Jeep Trail runs along the eastern border of the WSA.  There are remnants of an old foot trail in the WSA, but we don’t have anything officially mapped.

Visitor Advisory

The Mountain Pine beetle hit this WSA pretty hard leaving many standing dead trees.
