The Pryor Mountains are an amazing place to feel solitude and peace. These mountains are a nice retreat, although you need to have a good map/gps to know where you are at- there is a mix of reservation, forest service and private land. Big Ice cave and Mystery Cave are fun places to check out as well. During late summer,... More

This is the home of the "little people" as the Crow called them. You drive out of Billings, through the south hills, and into the area where several movies have been filmed. It is quite picturesque. The locals will not greet you with much gladness, and once you are on the Crow Reservation, it is illegal to get out of... More

I had an excellent guide familiar with the Pryor Mountains and the Crow Indian Reservation. We went bass fishing and had a great time!

Amazing experience here. Scenic total beauty but also gets the adrenaline rushing. We drove around (actual looking to exit) for over 4 hours did not see another person at all but some amazing wildlife. Off roaded through the mountains, should have had an ATV rather than just an on road 4x4 but was exhilirating. Did not see the Bears thankfully!... More

The Mountains are beautiful. We went to try and find the Wild Horses and did not find them. Still the country is beautiful. If you go off road only do so if you have a 4 Wheel Drive

The Pryor Mountains are majestic from the highway or if you drive up close. Wild mustangs roam here and are protected. It is a beautiful natural vista as part of the Crow Nation Reservation.

Pryor Mountain is absolutely filled with mystery and wonder for me. When there, I can sense ancient civilizations and their mystery and wonder, also. To me, the mountain should be visited in quiet respect and adoration...and then along comes 4 noisy irreverant ATV's that shatters the dream. Nevertheless, there is somethimg magical about Prior Mountain. Visit the mountain in May... More

We were only looking for wild horses and had no idea what we were in for! Gorgeous scenery and the Devil's Gorge was a hidden gem!

Being in the mountains withe very few people around was wonderful. At times we felt we had the place to ourselves. It's not the Beartooths for sure but it is much more than I expected from what I saw of them from Billings.

I was really following Indian Wars battles from Sheridan but one day my guide asked if I'd like to see wild mustangs. Would I? Of course! I know there is a big push to try and save wild mustanges in the south of the country, but these ponies up here in the Prior Mountains were just wonderful. We got close... More
