Montana and Yellowstone Park Horseback Pack Trips
You are welcome to come along with us on our horse pack trip for a special and unique vacation in the secluded Montana & Wyoming Beartooth Wilderness. The only way to experience this remote backcountry is riding horseback or on foot. This is the place to go to “Get Away From It All”.
Imagine riding a trail wise, mountain horse to our comfortable Elk Park backcountry base camp. It is about a two hour horseback ride from the trailhead to camp. Our camp is located at the head of a beautiful meadow, filled with colorful wildflowers. It consists of large wall tents equipped with army cots for our guests, a large fly over the cooking area where the meals are prepared, a campfire, a wall tent for the guides, wranglers & cook, a latrine, a hitch rail and tack area.
We furnish the camp, tents, horses, saddles & tack, wrangler / guides, cook, food & meals, and do the camp chores. All you need to bring is your personal gear, sleeping bag & pad, camera, binoculars and a sense of adventure. If you’d like to fish, you’ll need your fishing gear & fishing license. We have a 35# total limit on your gear.
After a hearty breakfast, we take a horseback ride to a different area each day. The scenery is breathtaking with spectacular vistas only experienced by a handful of people. There are several hundred, pristine, high alpine lakes and streams full of willing trout for those that want to fish. For the non-fisherman, this area offers unlimited sightseeing, wildlife viewing, photography, geology, Hiking and of coarse horseback riding or just plain old back country relaxin’.
Our Yellowstone Park horse pack trip goes to the 3rd meadow of Slough Creek. It is about a 3 hour horseback ride from the trail head to camp. This area offers opportunities for horseback riding, sightseeing, wildlife viewing, photography, wildflowers, and fly fishing for large cutthroats.
We furnish the camp, tents, food & meals, horses, saddles & tack, wrangler / guides, cook, and do the camp chores. All you need to bring is your personal gear, sleeping bag & pad, camera, binoculars, fishing gear, fishing license and sense of adventure. We have a 35# total limit on your gear.
Yellowstone Park regulations limit us on how many horses we can take on our Yellowstone Pack Trips and require us to pack our backcountry camp in and set it up and then take it down and pack it out when we leave. By following these regulations, we are not able to have our big wall tents or army cots to sleep on like we do in our permanent base camp in the Beartooth Mountains.
