Come Climb Crown Butte to find 360 degree views of where the Rocky Moutnain Front mountains meet the plains. This butte is a unique example of a laccolith with gorgeous shonkinite formations covered in lime-green lichen. Eagle catches and teepee rings can be found on the butte along with native Montana grasses and a Nature Conservancy plaque. If we are lucky, we will catch a glimpse of the mule deer herd that inhabits the valleys on the butte.

Notes/Adivsory: High clearance vehicles required. Hike will be cancelled if it rains due to gumbo roads. Remember this in an all women/girls hike.
