About the area:
East Rosebud Lake is nestled in a classic glacially carved valley at an elevation of 6,200 feet, which is rimmed with cabins forming the historic private town of Alpine, Montana. Awesome peaks of the Beartooth Range, rise from the lake to elevations over 10,000 feet and Granite Peak, the highest point in Montana, is just beyond the horizon. Several wildnerness trails originate at the lake which has been classified as one of the most pristine surface waters in Montana.
East Rosebud Lake is located approximately 45 miles south of Columbus Montana, and 35 miles west of Red Lodge, Montana.
