The Sleeping Giant earned its name from the rocks that form the silhouette of a slumbering man on the Helena horizon. This trek takes hikers to the summit of Beartooth Peak, or the “Giant’s Nose” for spectacular views of the Missouri River, the Gates of the Mountains, and several more mountain ranges. This 4-mile (round-trip) and moderately strenuous hike gains over 2,000 feet in elevation which involves some non-technical scrambling to reach the summit.  We will learn about the unique habitats and attributes that make this WSA a prime candidate for Wilderness designation.
