The Oldest River In Montana Is A Beautiful Piece Of Living History

When you’re born and raised in Montana, you know that a day spent by the river is just as amazing as a day at the beach. Our rivers are so impressive, they inspired a book and movie (A River Runs Through It). And if you happen to be at the Jefferson River, you’ll be in the presence of living history, some of which goes back almost 3 billion years.

If you’d like to spend some time enjoying the Jefferson River, check out the canoe trail or spend the day at Missouri Headwaters State Park. And if you’d rather spend time relaxing at the river than anything else, visit some of Montana’s most charming river towns.
