Makoshika State Park
May 26 - June 1
Makoshika State Park is Montana’s largest state park as it totals almost 12,000 acres in size. The park has 11 designated trails, visitor center, campground, PDGA disc golf course, archery range, pavilion for rent, and outdoor amphitheater that seats over 200 people. The park receives almost 100,000 visitors a year and in 2017 won the USA Today Best Montana Attraction award. One of the park’s main attractions is dinosaurs. Over 10 different species of dinosaur fossils have been found in the park. The visitor center also has a paleontology lab in the basement. The trail crew will be instrumental in helping with our partnership trail. The Buccaneer Trail connects the state park to the community college and travels over a BLM easement. This one mile trail needs some repairs and the BLM portion of the trail needs to be established. This trail work should not take more than two days. The other two days of work will include repairing the 1/2 mile Switchback Trail and Hungry Joe Trailhead. Tools used for the project will include Pulaski’s, McLeod’s, and shovels.
