Abstract

The Marysville stock is about 17 mi (27 km) northwest of Helena, Montana, in Lewis and Clark County (Fig. 1). To reach the area from Helena, go7mi(11 km) north on 1–15 to exit 200 and turn west (left) off the exit ramp onto Montana 279 (Lincoln Road). At 8.5mi(14km) from 1-15, turn southwest (left) onto a gravel road marked by signs for Marysville and the Belmont Ski Area. The old mining town of Marysville is about 6 mi (10 km) from this turnoff. Most of the area is readily accessible by passenger car although some areas are accessible only by four-wheel drive or foot (Fig. 2). The mines are on private land. Permission should be obtained from owners with posted land or locked gates.
