Dry Fork of the Powder River Segment - Bozeman Trail

 

 
 

Read All About It:

The Dry Fork of the Powder River trends eastward just before its confluence with the main Power River drainage. In a gap between two prominent north-south trending ridges the Dry Fork tributary features a wide dispersal of trail ruts. Lying on both the north and south sides of the Dry Fork of the Powder River these trail ruts appear throughout the open flood plain of this tributary of the Powder River. Immediately adjacent to the trail ruts on the Dry Fork's northern side was the Powder River Station. On the ground evidence for this station is lacking, although its location has been verified through historic documentation. A grove of cottonwood trees mark the station's location on the river terrace.
