Montana State Parks ( will host a Montana Wilderness Association (MWA) Wilderness Walk at Makoshika State Park on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 10 am.

Join park staff on a Wilderness Walk along the Vista Trail; a road-to-trail project which provides three miles of non-motorized trail accessing some of the more remote areas of the park.  The hike is part of MWA’s Wilderness Walk series which is held statewide each year. The four-mile roundtrip hike is rated as moderate in difficulty.  Participants should wear comfortable hiking shoes, weather appropriate clothing and bring water.

For more than 50 years, the Montana Wilderness Association has been working with communities across the state to protect Montana’s wilderness heritage, quiet beauty, and outdoor traditions. The grassroots conservation proved instrumental in the passage of the 1964 Wilderness Act and in the designation of all 15 wilderness areas in Montana.  The association currently has more than 5,500 members.

For questions about this hike, contact the Makoshika State Park visitor center at (406) 377-6256.
