Nestled between forested mountains on the banks of the Kootenai River, Troy is Montana's lowest-elevation town. Pioneers called the region Montana's Wilds, for its deep valleys, steep mountains and dense forests. Gold prospectors camped in the area in the mid-1880s, but the town wasn't permanently settled until the Great Northern established a freight yard here in 1892.
Ross Creek Cedars Scenic Area, 21 miles south on SR 56 then 4 miles west on Ross Creek Road, has a .9-mile interpretive nature trail that leads visitors through a 100-acre stand of old growth western red cedar. The lush woodland, with trees upward of 8 feet thick and 175 feet tall, is a modified temperate rain forest.
