2nd visit. This time we were the only 2 people there in the morning and it was great to enjoy the silence and view the site. Next time we're going to do the hike to the top of the plateau. Very interesting to understand what took place there before the horse arrived.
Several years ago we had visited this location but we had only seen the "Jump" from the top. This time we made the trek to see it from the bottom. Wow - what a difference! From the bottom you get the eerie feeling of imagining the Buffalo cascading over the rim above. You can visualize the Indian men and women... 更多
5 miles of paved road before the two miles of well maintained gravel road. Once at the site, you can walk the quarter mile to interpretation kiosk or walk the entire trail of two miles to top of the actual buffalo jump. It is an honor system park as are the fresh chocolate chip cookies in a cooler by the... 更多
This is a very scenic state park in Three Forks Montana. Madison Buffalo Jump State Park is located several miles off of I-90 down a gravel road. It is a road that is easily accessible with any time of car though as long as there is no snow on the road. This state park allows for visitors to watch wildlife... 更多
The Madison Buffalo Jump State Park is the site that was used by Indians in the past. The Park has trails that go around the park to all the areas of interest, and there are several. Plan and walking for a mile or more to see it all, and keep your eyes open, some of the things are somewhat difficult... 更多
Excellent interpretive exhibit, not too far from several interesting places to eat in Three Forks and Manhattan. I saw no inference about conservation one way or the other as per other reviewers but rather an explanation of how important the great bison herds were that once roamed this area to the Native American Indian. Most of Montana's State Monuments and... 更多
Short 1/4 mile fairly steep trail up to an interpretive plaza where you learn the history of the site. It was $6 for non-residents and there was a clean outhouse in the parking area. We saw 6 deer on our way back to the highway and lively flowers along the road.
Be ready for a trip down long gravel roads to get here, but enjoy the views and the Alpaca/Llama farm along the way. This state park is nestled in the backcountry but is a great educational experience for the kids and is well maintained. A very short hike up the hill takes you to the covered interpretive center where it... 更多
Seen one buffalo jump you seen them all. Nothing out here, just a hill and a few signs. Double up this trip with maybe a hike around the area. One real positive is it's so remote there is not sound from anything around which is cool. Interesting place but a few minutes to look and you are done after the... 更多
