The Little Belt Mountains are a section of the Rocky Mountains just a short drive from Great Falls, Montana. Situated in the Lewis and Clark National Forest, the primary uses include recreation and logging. The highest point in the Little Belts is Big Baldy which rises to 9,175 feet. The Little Belts are home to expansive conifer forests, mostly consisting of ponderosa-pine and douglas fir. Other species, like lodgepole and whitebark pines are found at higher elevations. Wildlife in the Little Belts include black bear, elk, white tailed and mule deer.
