Montana's Mission Mountains, east of Flathead Lake, mark the western edge of a massive section of wilderness land. This area is covered by the Flathead National Forest and is made up of at least six wilderness areas and wildlife refuges, with Bob Marshall Wilderness being the largest. Although small in comparison, the Mission Mountain Wilderness covers more than 70,000 acres, and when coupled with up with the adjoining Flathead Indian Reservation Tribal Wilderness, the area tops 160,000 acres.
