Protect Our Plug

An organization protecting "The Plug" in Cooke City, Montana

Our Mission

"To preserve and protect Cooke City's unique winter heritage and recreational access to our mountains."

What is "The Plug"

“The Plug” is a 9 mile stretch of Highway 212 and one of the snowiest mountain passes in Montana. From Pilot Creek, WY to Cooke City, it’s the main groomed trail for recreational access to the backcountry and remains unplowed October – May.

Where the road ends the adventure begins!

Current Campaign


Create a replacement “Trail A” and two USFS approved parking lots before plowing year round.
