Secrets of the Clark Fork River

June – August

Floods, Rails and Trails.   The history of a river flowing through Missoula.

The Clark Fork River has been a barrier, a sewer, a transportation corridor and a cornerstone of Missoula recreation.  On this walking tour you will learn about its history including the people, the opportunities and the oddities that made it what it is today.  The tour, which begins at Caras Park, will take a little over an hour and will cover a mile on flat, level surfaces.  Comfortable shoes should be worn, as well as weather appropriate clothing including hats.
