Bob Marshall Wilderness Pack Trips
Montana USA

Montana is a place of vast prairies, spectacular snow-covered mountains, verdant forests, and wild rivers and streams. Its land is filled with wildlife, its waters bountiful with fish.

The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is known as the "crown jewel" of the wilderness system. There is high drama here and there is great peace. Our trips begin where the Great Plains rise to meet the Rocky Mountains. We climb with the land, from trout-rich rivers through lodge pole forest and alpine meadows to towering limestone cliffs. This is the home of tiny shooting stars and 600 pound grizzly bears, the mischievous Clark's nutcracker and the stately elk. In the glacial sweep of low meadow and aspen groves, we often spot whitetail and mule deer. High basins may yield fossils of unlikely sea plants, sponges and shellfish, as well as today's living inhabitants, the pika, marmot, mountain goat and eagle. These trips are run by professional guides Ron and Tucker who were each born and raised on a cattle ranch in the Augusta area and have packed and guided here since 1959. This is a small, family operation of high quality, taking pride in good stock, equipment, food, camp facilities, and an experienced crew.

The heart of our Montana wilderness operation is a base camp in the White River, just four miles from the continental divide and many well known landmarks, such as the Chinese Wall, Needle Falls, Flathead Alps, Big Salmon Lake and many others, which may be not as well known, such as the "Lost World of Peggy Creek," for example. This region affords good opportunities to see wildlife in one of the last natural strongholds in North America, and many opportunities to fish for the native cutthroat, both big and small. Montana has been called the "last best place." Come see why.
