Whitaker Bridge to Belmont Creek Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Blackfoot River runs 1 30 miles, from the glaciated highalpine meadows at the Continental Divide near Lincoln to its confluence with the Clark Fork River near the town of Bonner. For centuries, Native American trails paralleled the north bank of the river, followed by wagon roads and railroads. The Nez Perce, Salish, Kootenai, and Shoshone Indians used this valley as a route to hunt buffalo on the eastern plains."
