Blackfoot River

A good float from spring to middle of July, the Blackfoot has class 2 whitewater that is playful and gentle. It is a beautiful glacial stream, made famous in Norman McLeans "A River Runs Through It". Rocky cliffs and giant boulders mix with thick forested mountain scenery providing a scenic gem that is a favorite of Missoula locals. Day trips are offered on this river. Well preserved bio-diversity makes the Blackfoot a great river for wildlife viewing.
