The section of the Blackfoot runs through the Resort at Paws Up, which I worked at for a number of years in both Activities and the Spa. I hiked this trail many times, during work and occasionally on days off. I had the opportunity on many occasions to guide guests on this hike and we would always stop along the river for photo opportunities.
A little bit of history connected with the Blackfoot River is that this area was traveled by Meriwether Lewis "of Lewis & Clark", with his party in 1806 as they headed back home. They camped along the river as they headed north and encountered a dangerous meeting with the Blackfoot Indians before eventually turning east to head towards the Missouri River.
This is also the river that the movie "A River Runs Through It" was written about. It was actually not filmed along the Blackfoot in the movie but this is the river that the story was based on.
