Battle Ridge Cabin is a rustic dwelling located north of Bozeman, in southwestern Montana. The cabin was built in 1938 and is open year-round. It can be reached by vehicle in the summer, but guests visiting during winter must hike or ski a quarter-mile from the highway to reach the cabin. Guests are responsible for their own travel arrangements and safety, and must bring several of their own amenities.


This is a popular destination in winter for cross-country skiers and snowshoers. Hikers can find nearby trails. Hunting is a popular activity in the area. This is also an ideal spot for birding and watching other wildlife species.

A wood cook stove, propane lantern, table and chairs are also provided. A vault toilet is located in an outhouse nearby. A campfire ring is just outside the cabin. No electricity or running water is provided. A spring is located about 500 yards away, but the water should be treated or boiled prior to consumption. Guests need to bring garbage bags to pack out their trash, and they are expected to clean the cabin before leaving. Items such as bedding, dishes, dish soap, dish towels, lanterns or flashlights, extra toilet paper, extra propane and first aid supplies are not available.

Natural Features

The cabin sits in a meadow surrounded by the evergreen-forested slopes of the Bridger Mountains, including the 9,004-foot Ross Peak, one of the better-known mountains in the range.
