Mount Tiny is within the Anaconda Pintler Wilderness Area near Georgetown Lake.  Mount Tiny is a great SOTA double with its neighbor Little Rainbow Mountain, W7M/BR-071.

The summit provides excellent views of high mountain lakes and open alpine SOTA peaks.    A glass jar register filled with paper is tucked into the summit rocks. 

Elevation gain: 2700’ from Storm Lake. 

Trail Miles:   5.5 roundtrip. 

Off-trail miles:  1 mile roundtrip.

Water:  Depending the time of year a stream exists above Storm Lake along the trail.  Then none exists along the trail.     

Bear Pepper Spray:  Highly recommended in all Montana summits. 

Map:  US Forest Service, Anaconda Pintler Wilderness

Directions:  Leave Montana Highway #1 approximately 12 miles west of Anaconda, Montana turning south on the Storm Lake Road #675.  The Storm Lake Road is good for approximately six miles.   Then the road begins to deteriorate over the next ½ mile.  Depending on your vehicle it’s a good time to find a parking place.  For those brave drivers in a high clearance vehicle one can navigate large gullies, potholes and boulders to reach Storm Lake.  From Storm Lake, travel 2.3 miles on trail FS#41to Storm Lake Pass.  At the Pass some more technical scramblers head up to the summit along the southeast ridge or the face.  I continued another ½ mile to Goat Flat.  There one can pick up the open grassy southwest ridge and find it is a class 2 hike-up to the summit.
