Helena, Bozeman, and Southwest Montana Sights

Madison Buffalo Jump

  • Native American Site

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

Within the Madison Buffalo Jump historic site is a cliff where Plains Indians stampeded bison to their deaths for more than 2,000 years, until European guns and horses arrived in the West. An interpretive center explains how the technique enabled Native Americans to gather food and hides. Picnic areas provide a restful break from touring. Be on the lookout for rattlesnakes here, and avoid wandering off the paths.
