The South Fork of the Flathead River is one of the three main forks of the Flathead River and begins at the confluence of Danaher Creek and Youngs Creek. For nearly 40 miles the river flows freely north-northwest, meandering through a forested and undeveloped roadless valley that forms the core of the 1.5 million acre Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex.

During Independence Day weekend, 2010, Tom Turiano, Nancy Bockino, Amy McCarthy and Forrest McCarthy hiked in 15 miles from the Bench Mark Trailhead to the confluence of Danahar and Basin Creeks. Over the next three days they floated some 50 miles to the Spotted Bear River. They portaged approximately 3 miles of Meadow Creek Gorge.
