Friends of 2 Rivers
A citizens' organization committed to promoting a safe, healthy and enriching environment for the communities at the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers.
While we anticipate the physical opening of the Milltown State Park's Confluence area, we can get a head start on experiencing the natural and cultural historic interpretation the park offers. In an article "Not just a pretty place: Milltown Park adds culture to confluence," the Missoulian reports on the story map "A Confluence of Stories: Nature and Culture at Milltown State Park."
The Milltown State Park Bluff Overlook is open and offers hiking opportunities on the floodplain trails on the south side of the Clark Fork River. On the bluff, the Forest Loop Trail and Overlook Trail are perfect for a brief visit. Enjoy a picnic while visiting. Tables are placed to offer stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Download the map at the Milltown State Park website, follow the link Trails Map.
