Interesting location and if you're following Lewis and Clark - a must. The actual headwaters is understated although there is a plaque and plenty of parking. You can then drive further down the Missouri and stop at various vantage points. Our favourite was overlooking the...More

You can still imagine what Lewis and Clark must have thought when they got here and the Missouri split into three rivers. Despite having visited Montana 8-10 times this was my first time here and it was a good decision.

This is a wide open space is where three rivers meet to form the Missouri. It probably broke Lewis' & Clark's hearts to realize that there was no water passage to the Pacific... but it is a serene, dramatic trail (with a well paved road)...More
