Raynesford Montana

Elevation: 4,199 Population: 42 County: Judith Basin

Raynesford began as a railroad town, named after the daughter of the man who sold the land to the railroad. In the early 1900s mining dominated the mountains south of Great Falls, and countless small settlements filled the coulees and gulches. Raynesford lies north of the ghost towns of Albright and Hughesville and is also just north of Sluice Boxes State Park. Soaring cliffs and precipitous ledges mark the Belt Creek Canyon as it slices out of the Little Belt Mountains and winds toward the town of Belt. Sluice Boxes State Park consists of the northern most 8 miles of the Belt Creek canyon. The train bridges have been removed and visitors must ford the creek when hiking the area.
