Experience solitude and tranquility on Yogo Peak in the Little Belt Mountains.

A short 2-hour drive from Great Falls leads you to Yogo Peak and Lake Elva, an area of beauty, tranquility, and solitude. Yogo Peak is located in the Little Belt Mountains which are part of the Lewis & Clark National Forest. 

Yogo Peak doesn't have a designated trail, but it is located to the south of the forest road. Be sure to download GPS maps before you leave since cell service can be spotty. Click the Get Directions link above to map the roads to get there.

To the south of the peak is the Middle Fork Judith River Wilderness Study Area. Below the peak in the Wilderness Study Area is Lake Elva.

Get out and explore!
