Sand Point Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A large roadless area with major streams and 1,000-foot limestone cliffs. Of all the large roadless areas in Montana, the Middle Fork of the Judith River may be the least known to hikers, not because it doesn’t offer good hiking, because it does. The 81,000-acre de facto wilderness has great stream fishing, a large wildlife population, and vistas to rival any wild area."

i have hiked a portion of it I found the scenery to be very beautiful for the part that i did hike. My brother has done the whole thing and said it can get a little challenging but the hike is very worth it
