Like many Montana towns, Townsend got its start as a railroad stop that sprouted up to support the business of gold mining sites. Today the town is known for its many parks and easy access to nearby wilderness. Both Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park lie nearby, as well as the Big Belt and Elk Horn mountain ranges. Throw in the Missouri just five minutes away, and you’ll know why they call the area the “valley of adventure.” A plethora of wilderness activities is complemented by the water recreation available at Canyon Ferry Lake. Purchase some cannabis as a Townsend dispensary today, and partake in the adventure.
