Jefferson Riverbends Preserve is located between Twin Bridges and Whitehall, just outside of Waterloo, MT. The property is accessed by a shared gravel driveway off of the paved and gravel Waterloo Road. Jefferson Riverbends Preserve is bisected by the Jefferson River and its tributary sloughs and enjoys a natural slough-fed pond at its southern boundary. The Jefferson River is one of the many world-famous trout streams in Southwest Montana and is formed by the confluence of the Ruby, Beaverhead and Big Hole Rivers just north of Twin Bridges. The Jefferson meets the Madison and Gallatin Rivers downstream near Three Forks where it becomes the mighty Missouri River. The greater Ruby Valley of Southwest Montana is a ranching community with some of the finest big game hunting and fishing in the country. The proximity of the Ruby, Beaverhead, Madison, Big Hole and Jefferson Rivers and surrounding mountains with ample public land access enhance the popularity of the valley.
