Experience Our Rivers
The Clark Fork, Blackfoot, and Bitterroot Rivers merge together in the Missoula Valley and offer some of the finest rafting, kayaking, river surfing, and scenic river tours Montana has to offer. Just over Lolo pass, the Lochsa River originates on the western slope of the Bitterroot Mountains, and is a designated Wild and Scenic River.
The Alberton Gorge of the Clark Fork River offers some of the best whitewater rafting in Western Montana.
The big Blackfoot River flows southwest from the Continental Divide and into the Clark Fork River, just five miles east of Missoula.
The Clark Fork River flows right through the heart of downtown Missoula and is our home river. It’s common to see outdoor enthusiasts rafting, surfing, kayaking, and fishing all year long on the Clark Fork River.
The Lochsa (pronounced lock-saw) was one of the original six rivers protected by U.S. Congress in 1968 as part of the designated Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.
