Jasmine A. on Missouri Headwaters Loop
Gorgeous trail near Three Forks, Montana. You see where the Missouri River is born from the Jefferson, Madison and Gallatin Rivers. During the summer bring lots of water since this is a lengthy loop. Also have bug spray on hand as well as sun screen. There are plenty of stopping points with signs that give you a bit of history on the area.
While most of this trail is on level ground, make note of the length of this trail. It is completely worth the trip though and I highly recommend it to anyone in the area!
