Fodor's Review

The heart of Missoula is defined by the Clark Fork River, which cuts through Hellgate Canyon between Mount Sentinel and Mount Jumbo, passes by the university, and slices through downtown. A 6-mile-long riverside trail and the connecting 2½-mile Kim Williams trail make for easy, pleasant walks, with picnic spots and benches along the way where you can watch the river. Take note: the powerful currents of the Clark Fork are dangerous—they've taken many lives over the years.
