Tower Rock State Park is significant in its reference in the Lewis and Clark Journals.Meriwether Lewis loved it there. As he wrote in his journal on July 16,1805:At this place there is a large rock of 400 feet high witch stands immediatly in the gap witch the Missouri makes on its passage from the mountains...This rock I called the tower. It may be ascended with some difficulty nearly to its summit and from it there is a most pleasing view of the country we are now about to leave.From it I saw that evening immense herds of buffaloe in the plains below.

ACCESS TO THE STATE PARK IS EXIT 247 ON I-15 AT HARDY,MT.

TO FIND THE TOWER BOXES
TAKE THE TRAIL AND THEN GO
YOU CAN CHOOSE TO WALK FAST
OR YOU CAN TAKE IT REAL SLOW

WALK THRU SOME BOULDERS
THAT LAY ON THE GROUND
LOOK TO THE RIGHT
WHERE THOUSANDS ABOUND

AFTER A WHILE ON
THE RIGHT YOU WILL SEE
A BALANCING ROCK
WITH AN ARM A BARE TREE

LOOK CAREFULLY NOW
ON THE GROUND YOU WILL SEE
A FAINT DEER TRAIL
THAT GOES UP THE GULLY
PAST A ROUNDED PINE TREE

GO UP THE GULLY BEHIND
THAT BALANCING BOULDER
SOON YOU'LL SEE A WEE LITTLE CAVE
ON THE LEFT ROCK SHOULDER

LOOK AT THE EDGE
OF THE CAVE
AND YOU'LL SEE
A LETTERBOX COVERED
BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS
