Lewis and Clark Overlook

Lewis and Clark Overlook is a gazebo structure with interpretive signs that commemorates Captain Lewis' trip up the Marias River. The project was a joint effort of the Marias Chapter of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, Northcentral Montana Bicentennial Commission, Liberty County and the Bureau of Reclamation. The site offers a panoramic view of the Sweetgrass Hills, the Bears Paw Mountains, Square Butte, the Highwood Mountains, portions of the Belt Mountains, the Rocky Mountain Front and the Marias River below. The site is right near or on the exact travel route of Captain Meriwether Lewis, Reuben Fields and Joseph Fields on the morning to mid-day July 20, 1806. George Droulliard rode his mount up the Marias River, investigating significant flora, fauna and possible resources of the newly purchased land.
