Where Adventure is Beyond Each Bend of the Trail...
There's still a place where time slows down and the only signpost is a hoof print. The Bob Marshall Wilderness is considered the “crown jewel” of America’s wilderness system. Our fully-guided horse pack-trips are designed to accommodate all levels of riders through this magnificent, unspoiled country where the only travel is by foot or horse.
Each pack trip is unique ranging from base camp oriented to trips that traverse the wilderness over the Continental Divide. We’ll travel across wilderness trails on sure-footed saddle horses that are mountain savvy and a joy to ride. Our trusty string of pack-mules carries all the gear so you can rough it in comfort. The Triple J crew, wrangler, packer, guide and camp cook, will provide a comfortable, complete camp. These limited trips average 8 guests to ensure a high level of personal service. Trips can be tailored for individual groups and interests.
During your Montana riding vacation the rugged landscape unfolds before you, revealing elk, mule deer and whitetail, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, eagles, moose and black bear. You'll have plenty of opportunities to fly fish the natural streams and lakes for native Cutthroats and Rainbow trout... it's a fisherman's paradise, all wrapped up in the awesome beauty of remote wilderness. Layover days offer options of riding, hiking, fishing or relaxing around the campfire.
2020 WILDERNESS TRIPS ARE FULL, but we have a couple of spaces available on this great trip:
CHINESE WALL LOOP TRIP August 24–30, 2020
Arrival: August 23 * Departure: August 31 * (7 Trail Days) Price $3155
Traveling into the Sun River valley area, this high-country trip climbs to the famous Chinese Wall, a majestic and rugged 12-mile section of the Continental Divide. With camps along the banks of the Sun River, we’ll explore the splendor of this spectacular rock formation. We'll also explore the meadow strewn country by horseback on layover days. Fishing, hiking and riding opportunities abound.
We take between 8-10 guests and 5 staff – the wilderness rules limit the numbers in each party. Our trips are fully outfitted with complete camp gear (private sleeping tent)so you just need to bring your sleeping bag and pad.
Plan to arrive at the ranch mid-afternoon on August 23rd; we provide dinner & ranch lodging this night. We will pack your duffle and sleeping bag after your arrival so bring an overnight bag for whatever needed for this evening and the next morning. Any extra items can be left in your cabin while you are in the backcountry. After 7 days on the trail, we return to the ranch in the mid to late afternoon of the 30th. Lodging is in your same cabin; departure is after breakfast on the 31st.
* We have the right to change day to day itinerary based on unforeseen circumstances, weather, forest fires, rider ability, etc. Due to the nature of horseback riding in the wilderness, participants MUST be in good physical condition and trips are not recommended if many health or physical issues or if you require a special diet. While we carry a satellite phone for emergencies, it is very difficult to bring someone out from a trip to seek medical attention. The emergency helicopter is costly and is for emergencies only. *
