Special Directions

Blackleaf Wildlife Management Area is located along the Rocky Mountain Front northwest of Choteau. The Blackleaf Road forms the northern boundary of the Wildlife Management Area and ends at the high-walled Blackleaf Canyon that encloses mountain goats and golden eagles. To reach the heart of the Blackleaf, take a marked dirt road off the main road (Highway 89) out of Bynum. This dirt road meanders toward Antelope Reservoir and Butte. If you are visiting between December 1 - May 15, vehicle travel is prohibited within the borders to protect wildlife during stressful winter months. From May 15 - July 1, the road to Antelope Reservoir is open to foot traffic only. For more information contact the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks, (406) 278-7754 or (406) 454-3441.
