Weather and Road Conditions

Located in a large mountain valley at over 6,000 feet in elevation, weather can be severe and road conditions poor at the battlefield. The National Weather Service's forecast, the State of Montana's road conditions, and the battlefield's webcam are all good resources for current and forecasted conditions in the area.

Recreate Responsibly

When recreating, please follow local area health orders, and practice Leave No Trace principles.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreate in parks and open spaces to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.


Air Quality

Clean air helps people breathe easily and see far. It keeps our parks and planet healthy too!

Breathe Easy: Parks are amazing places to be active. Good outdoor air quality helps people feel their best as they enjoy national parks.

See Far: Clean air is critical for clear views of park scenery and historic landscapes.

Enjoy Nature: Good air quality supports healthy wildlife, vegetation, water, and soils. National parks conserve sensitive natural places.

So what is the current air quality at Big Hole National Battlefield? We have installed an air quality monitor at the visitor center, so you can know in real-time what the current air quality is.
