The Front is a grand sweep of jagged limestone peaks, walls, reefs and deeply cut canyons.
The front itself is a diverse wilderness range with an intrinsic value of unequaled wildness, but much of its mystique comes from what lies on either side. The western horizon is filled by the 2.5 million acres of the Bob Marshall, Scapegoat and Great Bear Wilderness, of which The Front is an integral part. Immediately east of the Front stretches a virtually undeveloped expanse of foothills and prairie in private, State and Bureau of Land Management ownership. This makes Montana's share of the Rocky Mountain Front the last, largest unspoiled meeting of mountains and plains between Canada and Mexico.
The Bob Marshall Wilderness is considered the nation's premier wilderness area. Designated the nation's first wilderness area, it contains 1 million acres. Later, Congress added the Scapegoat and Great Bear Wilderness area, totaling 1.5 million-acre complex. Big in size, grandeur and legend, "The Bob" is home to almost every big-game species in North America. Go to www.savethefront.org/index.php for more information on the "The Bob."
