Triple Divide Pass

Triple Divide Pass Professional Review and Guide

"This is a difficult day hike to a unique mountain pass.

Triple Divide Peak, which hovers above Triple Divide Pass, is the only place in Montana where water flows into three oceans—Atlantic, Pacific, and Hudson Bay (Arctic Ocean), which are, appropriately, the names of the three streams flowing off the mountain.

From the trailhead the Cut Bank Creek Trail stays gradually uphill all the way to the Pitamakan Pass Junction at 3.9 miles. The southern horizon is dominated by Bad Marriage Mountain, named for a Blackfeet chief, not an old ranger’s marital problems. You follow sparkling and slow-moving Cut Bank Creek all the way."
