The Big Fork provides the occasional wild ride as it flows past a mix of forest land and farms. With many developed campsites, it’s a good choice for an overnight trip.
The trip down the upper Big Fork begins at the USDA Forest Service picnic area at Dora Lake. An interesting side trip is the so-called Lost Forty, about 4 miles to the northwest, an area of virgin red and white pine missed by loggers because early maps showed the area to be underwater. A 0.5-mile trail loops beneath the canopy of pines.
