Description

Miles/Difficulty: 7 miles/Moderately Strenuous
Leaders: Timothy Faber

This is a two-day car-camp and hike in the Cow Creek Wilderness Study Area, located within the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Hiking through rugged badlands, we will cross the Nez Perce Trail near Cow Island, where freight was unloaded during the Steamboat Era on the Missouri River. Learn about the history of homesteaders, outlaws and Lewis and Clark, while taking on breath-taking views of the Missouri Breaks. Expect to see bighorn sheep, mule deer, elk, and raptors.
