It was named for the large creek that flows by it and is derived from the Indian phrase, "Creek-where-the-wolf-jumped-too" or "Creek-that-the-wolf-jumped-in." Located near the Missouri River, as well as Hauser Lake, camping and water recreation is a mainstay. The "Gates of the Mountains" located on the Missouri River are also located nearby. Rogers Pass was named after A.B. Rogers, in 1887, who was a surveyor for the Great Northern Railway. The pass is located in the Blackfoot Valley near Lincoln, Montana, (also known as the basecamp of the Crown of the Continent). It is the best route between Missoula and Great Falls. Rogers Pass spans the Continental divide, which means that this area sees extreme weather conditions. This area is also a great place to observe golden eagles and other raptors. Strong westerly winds help migrating flocks to cross the continental divide so they can spend the summer on the Great Plains.
