Forest Service unveils Crazy Mountains land swap proposal

More than a year after the Crazy Mountain Access Project group put a land swap proposal before the Custer Gallatin National Forest, the public now has an opportunity to comment on the deal, which seeks to consolidate checkerboard land in the Crazy Mountains. If the swap is approved, the Forest Service will acquire 6,430 acres of private land in exchange for 4,135 acres of federal land.
