Visit this beautiful recreational area, which has historical ties to the Lewis and Clark expedition.

The Gates of the Mountains Wilderness is a massive limestone canyon lining the shores of the Missouri River. This canyon is part of the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest and is a recognized landmark on the Lewis and Clark Trail. In 1964, the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness was designated as a wilderness.

It contains over 28,000 acres of land for visitors to explore. There are 50 miles of hiking trails located within this wilderness, providing beautiful sights and fresh country air to avid hikers. The Gates of the Mountains Wilderness is a popular recreation area. When you visit, you can take the exclusive boat tour. The boat tour is kid-friendly and they have a large supply of lifejackets on board. This tour ends up at the Meriwether picnic area, a perfect spot to enjoy a light lunch, go bird watching, or take pictures of the surrounding wilderness.
