Decision Point is only one mile off of Highway 87, near the town of Loma, MT. A visit will reward you with a beautiful overlook of the confluence of the Marias (Ma-RYE-us) and Missouri Rivers. From the parking area, an interpretive kiosk orients you to the site and a short 1/4 mile trail extends uphill to the overlook. From this low but stunning vantage point one can imagine seeing the Corp of Discovery camped in the river bottom below. Lewis and Clark took 10 days (June 3-12, 1805) to decide which river would lead them to the northwest passage.
Sorry, there are no events listed for Loma at this time.
Decision Point Overlook is located 9 miles north of Fort Benton near the town of Loma on US Highway 87. A BLM sign indicates the turn, travel one mile on a gravel road to the overlook.
