Montana's most intact ghost town was never built to last. Garnet endures along with the spirits of the rugged gold miners and their families who carved a community in the heart of the Garnet Mountain Range at the end of the nineteenth century. In 1898, some 1,000 people knew Garnet as home.
Garnet is open year-round, daily from 9:30am-4:30pm, however access is limited in the winter. Wheeled vehicles are allowed on the road from May 1 through December 15, depending on snow conditions. Please note that visitors in the spring and fall may want/need to park in the designated parking lots and ski or snowmobile to the town instead of driving on snow-bound roads. In winter, Garnet is only accessible by snowmobile and cross-country ski trip.
