Upper Nunnery

Montana > Southwest Region > Gallatin Canyon > W Side > Nunnery

Description

Upper zone, high quality gneiss, variety of movement.

Getting There

Use the Cube approach and cut left at powerline elevation. Cross drainage towards FS cabins and then follow faint trail up drainage (westside) up for approximately 1 mile until arriving at the base of a talus field. Continue up the right side of the talus field until the first obvious boulder appears. The ATAT Boulder will be behind it.

[Hide Comment] FYI: The people who lease the forest service cabin recently created a shooting range located on the trail as you cross the creek before heading into the woods towards the boulders. The shooting range faces the trail up to the boulders. While I don't want to question the legality of creating the shooting range on national forest in close proximity to a state highway or confront the leasers about it, I think it's important to keep this in mind while walking either up or down the trail. If you hear gunfire while descending the trail, be sure to make your presence known and be polite since they are evidently armed. Sep 17, 2020
