Makoshika State Park will host a Montana Wilderness Association Hike on Saturday, June 15, at 10 a.m. Join park staff and the Montana Wilderness Association for a hike along the Vista Trail following this road-to-trails route along a plateau in the undeveloped portion of Makoshika. Enjoy close-up views of the badlands and distant views of adjacent valleys.
The trail is moderate in difficulty but little or no shade is available and daytime temperatures can be extreme. A hat, hiking poles, comfortable shoes, and plenty of water is recommended. The trip leaders will make stops along the route to provide rest breaks and share information about the park, its resources, and management. Please meet the hike leaders at the Vista Trailhead.
For more than 50 years, Montana Wilderness Association (MWA) has been working with communities across the state to protect Montana’s wilderness heritage, quiet beauty, and outdoor traditions. It’s a mission that began in 1958 when our founders, Ken and Florence Baldwin, sent a letter to 100 friends, inviting them to join a citizen-led effort to protect the Madison and Gallatin Ranges. Since that time, our commitment to grassroots conservation has proved instrumental in the passage of the 1964 Wilderness Act and in the designation of all 15 wilderness areas in Montana. MWA currently has more than 5,500 members.
