Overview

Located in the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, Jackknife is a short trail that allows you to break out of the surrounding tall trees and get out into the open, grassy fields, overlooking the valleys and enjoy the surrounding mountain views. Once on top of the rolling hills, the mountain views stretch for miles. The tall grass blows like waves through the fields and along the hillsides. This is a popular grazing and watering spot for the cows which can present a roadblock sometimes. The kids will get a kick out of the closeup drivebys, and some good moo's along the way.
