Friends of the Crazy Mountains' (FOCM) mission is to lend a public hand to our public lands, by protecting and advancing public access, into and within, the Crazy Mountains.

  • Trail maintenance, on Forest Service public access trails, with easements and unperfected historical prescriptive easements. To remain safe and usable, these trails need regular maintenance.
  • Preserving public access from county roads into the Crazy Mountains.
  • Working with & Watchdogging the County, State and Federal agencies who have jurisdiction over the Crazy Mountains.

Friends of the Crazy Mountains was created by a group of citizens, in the Fall of 2016, concerned about public access to the Crazy Mountains, and Forest Service trail maintenance, on and to our public lands, while hunting/camping at the Shields-Lowline Trailhead. Brad Wilson, one of the founders, contacted the Yellowstone Ranger District, Alex Sienkiewicz, to see about the Friends of the Crazy Mountains helping to maintain some trails that were in need of repair. Wilson then learned of other needs, historic public road/trail access threats in the Crazy Mountains.
