    Swim like a fish?  Or spend days longing to catch them?  Then today’s Summer Bucket List series pick - the Madison River in Montana - is the one for you.

    Blue-ribbon trout stream, tubers’ delight, hikers’ paradise—whatever you call it, the Madison River is one of the most scenic spots in southwestern Montana.  The Bureau of Land Management’s Dillon Field Office manages more than a dozen recreation sites along the gin-clear waters of the river. 

    The crown jewel of the Madison River system is the Bear Trap Canyon Wilderness, one of the four units of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness. The Bear Trap Canyon is the first wilderness area to be managed by the BLM. The 6,347-acre area offers beautiful wilderness scenery plus exciting whitewater rafting featuring the famous Class IV - V “Kitchen Sink” rapid. The 1,500-foot cliffs that border the canyon provide a dramatic backdrop for nature study, hiking, sightseeing, whitewater rafting and fishing along the nine-mile Bear Trap Canyon National Recreation Trail.
