Luther is nestled in the beautiful and rugged Beartooth Mountain Range northwest of Red Lodge.
Outdoor fun isn’t hard to find around here, especially with Cooney State Park nearby. This recreation hot spot draws boaters, swimmers, anglers and stargazers. Stocked with walleye and rainbow trout, Cooney Reservoir is an idea spot to cast a line and then sleep out under a sky full of stars. Dark skies make it an ideal place to witness the Milk Way and other cosmic awesomeness.
Take the drive between Luther and Roscoe—the Luther-Roscoe Scenic Drive. It’s a short, 18-mile road trip through the rolling foothills of the Beartooth Mountains with unbelievable views of the rugged peaks, soft hills, wide-open grasslands and East Rosebud Creek. There are several pull-offs along the way including a Montana Highway Historic Marker interpreting how the Bozeman Trail cut through the landscape in the 1860s. Heads up: the road is primarily gravel, and can be rough in s few spots, but you shouldn’t need a 4WD unless it’s really wet and muddy. The slower pace means you’ve got time to take it all in.
