Access for Hirschy Mountain

From Hwy 278 about 6.6 miles south of Wisdom, MT, turn west at the Twin Lakes Campground exit (RD 12).

Travel 8.2 miles to a sign pointing toward Big Swamp Creek Road and turn left (south).

In approximately 8.5 miles, turn right (southwest) onto Big Swamp Creek Road 625.

Travel west for 2.4 miles to the signed Slag-a-Melt turnoff on your right.

Stay right and go 1.3 miles a fork.

The left fork is signed Slag-a-Melt Trail 186, the right fork goes to the mine.

This is a good place to park with plenty of available spots which don’t block the road.

The Forest Service roads in this area are closed to motorized traffic (except snowmobiles) until May 15.
