Are there water sources available along the Montana Trail?
Yes, there are many sources of drinking water along the trail. However, trail users must be prepared to filter or purify water from springs, streams, rivers, ponds, lakes, etc. This water should not be considered drinkable without treatment. Availability of water is sometimes sporadic. The longest dry stretch is considered to be Section 22. However, water sources also depend on the time of season you are hiking. The balance of the trail has water sources frequent enough for daily-or-better resupply.
