The trail takes you along the north side of Fort Peck and close to several parts of the American Prairie Reserve and through large parts of the Charles M Russell and UL Bend National Wildlife Refuges. Permits are not required. Water is not plentiful on this long section which ends at Fort Peck Dam.
