Ross Creek Scenic Area
Located in the Kootenai National Forest in Montana.
The Ross Creek Scenic Area encompasses 100 acres. Reached by four miles of Forest road from State Highway 56, the Ross Creek Scenic Area is a grove of ancient Western Red Cedars growing along the banks of Ross Creek. A 0.9-mile self-guided nature trail forms a winding loop through the grove. Informative signs along the trail provide the history and ecology of the many plant and animal species native to the grove. The giant cedars reaching eight feet in diameter and 175 feet tall are complemented by large specimens of other western trees, lush ferns and flowers growing from the shady forest floor. There are streamside picnic grounds, but no camping facilities at the Cedar Grove.
