Big Hole National Battlefield

I was expecting your typical walk across an open field, like you get at so many battlefields, but this hike was surprising. While the story of the battle is sobering, and always in the back of your mind, the trail itself is a very pleasant walk. Starting down along the Big Hole River you eventually start the gradual climb onto the wooded hillside where the soldiers waited to attack. A short side trail can take you up to where the howitzer canon was captured, and then the trail ends at an overlook of the battlefield below. Overall a great experience.
