Mill Falls
July afternoon   
  Quality:

The trailhead to Mill Falls is accessed at Mill Falls Campground. The hike to the falls is an easy 200 yard walk through a forest of tall Englemann Spruce and grand Black Cottonwood trees. At the end of trail Mill Falls cascades down into a shallow, crystal clear pool.
Access
From Choteau travel northwest on Canyon Road 26 miles to Forest Road 109. Turn south (left) and drive 7.8 miles to Mill Falls Campground.
History
The Rocky Mountain Front is the awesome formation of steep rugged mountains and deep canyons at the edge of the Great Plains which extends from Glacier National Park at the north end southward to about Roger’s Pass. The transformation from the mountainous heights to the foothills, which then emerges onto immense expanse of eastern Montana prairie, is striking.
This change from peak to prairie produces an ecological transition zone or ecotone that yields a sanctuary which supports an amazing diversity of wildlife. This key habitat is home to Elk, Bighorn Sheep, Mountain Goat, Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, Mountain Lion, Badger, Bobcat, Canadian Lynx, Red Fox, Wolverine, Coyote, Beaver, Martin, Moose, Mule Deer and Whitetail Deer to name some of them.
Camping
Mill Falls Campground (USFS) is 33.8 miles northwest of Choteau in the Lewis and Clark National Forest. There are 4 camping units, toilet facilities, no drinking water, no fees and a pack-in pack-out policy.
