Highwood is some twenty-five miles east of Great Falls in the center of early cattle-grazing land. Cowboys from here went to Fort Benton for supplies that were shipped up the Missouri River on riverboats, which is a journey of about twenty miles as the cowboys rode. It has been suggested that the town, mountain, and creek were so named because in this plains district trees grew high upon the old, volcanic Highwood Mountains. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company) The nearby Highwood Mountains national forest region is popular among hikers and campers.
