Adventure Horseback Rides

Off Ranch Trail Rides

Cross Country Horseback Rides

Along with a Triple Creek Ranch wrangler, get a different perspective of the Bitterroot Valley on a cross country adventure ride in a variety of settings, including our beautiful 26,000 acre CB Ranch. Enjoy breathtaking mountain vistas, wildlife, such as herds of elk and deer; watch for bald eagles, golden eagles and waterfowl; check out our herd of bison and be ever alert to the rare glimpse of a wolf or mountain lion. Ride to the perfect overlook for a delicious packed lunch prepared by the kitchen.

Because of the mountainous terrain, our horses are guided at a leisurely walk and for the safety of our guests and horses we do not accept riders over 250 lbs. An additional fee of $150 per person is assessed and will be added to your cabin invoice. Cross Country Horseback rides are offered May until mid-October. A prerequisite on-ranch ride is required.

Lewis & Clark Trail with Rawhide Outfitters

These leisurely horse rides traverse along a picturesque trail that was traveled by Lewis & Clark. With amazing views and wildlife, you will get a sense of what it must have been like for Lewis & Clark during their historic crossing. Reaching the summit, observe a panoramic view of the Continental Divide where a delicious picnic lunch is provided by Rawhide Outfitters. An additional fee of $180.00 (rates do not include a 6% Idaho sales tax) is assessed and payable to Rawhide Outfitters. Half day adventures $110 per person. Guests drive themselves, just an hour and fifteen-minutes from Triple Creek Ranch, to meet their guide at North Fork, Idaho at 9:30 am. If guest cancels within 24 hours a full price cancellation policy will be enforced by the outfitter. Minimum of 2 required. Lewis & Clark Trail Rides are offered Sunday through Friday from June to early-August depending on snow levels. Depart at 8:15 am and return in the afternoon at 4:00/5:00pm.

Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Horseback Ride

At 1.3 million acres, the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness is one of the largest designated wilderness areas in the US. It includes mountain ranges and national forests that span Montana and Idaho, and remains one of the most pristine wild frontiers, with much of it only accessible via foot, horseback or small aircraft.

On this adventure you will fly into a roadless region of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness to land at Running Creek Ranch airstrip. The thirty-minute flight to the banks of the Selway River takes you over the awe-inspiring Bitterroot Mountains, then into the untraveled wilderness of Northern Idaho. Once landed, your guide will be waiting to help you saddle up and head out for an unforgettable horseback experience. An additional cost of $1,445 for 2 guests will be added to your cabin invoice ($1,590 for three people). A fifty percent deposit is due upon booking. Cancellation within 48 hours is 50% or if within 24 hours, full price. Please note, because we can only fly into the wilderness, this adventure is subject to weather conditions. Triple Creek Ranch provides a gourmet pack lunch and guests drive themselves to Hamilton Airport, just 40 minutes from Triple Creek Ranch.

Selway Wilderness offers a limited number of trips in late September through October. Trips depart at 8:15am and you’ll return to the ranch by 7:00pm.
