Read all about it

The Stinking Water Gulch Segment of the Bozeman Trail retains some of the best trail rut remains in conjunction with an unimpaired visual aspect of any segment along the Bozeman Trail. Documentary and field research have verified that this property is the product of traffic along the Bozeman Trail during its period of historic use. The many parallel crossings of both Stinking Water Creek and the gulch of the same name can be clearly seen in this segment.
