Overview

Jackpine Gulch Trail is located in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, the largest of the national forests in Montana covering 3.35 million acres. This road is less than an hours drive from Ennis or West Yellowstone, and just under 2 hours from Big Sky Montana. The trail begins down in the steep valley floor of the West Madison River Valley surrounded by rocky bluffs, tall trees, and a few slopes of tall grass swaying in the breeze. With the wind hopping through the trees above, you can hear the rumbling sound of the West Fork Madison River while you take in the stunning views of the rocky cliffs up high. Bring your friends and come hungry for the wild strawberries and raspberries that can found along this road.
