CB Ranch Excursions

Scenic Drive | Photo Safari | Rocky Mountain Road Tour

Scenic Drive

A longtime favorite for both new and return guests, this Scenic Drive takes you on a journey through the vast 26,000+ expanse of the CB Ranch. Scheduled in the morning when wildlife is most active, search for species that inhabit and seasonally migrate through western Montana while you take in the backdrop of our spectacular mountain ranges.

While touring the Ranch and surrounding area from the comfort of our luxury 4WD vehicles, discover the local herds of elk, mule deer, whitetail and bison on the horizon. Spy eagles and hawks soaring through Montana’s big sky, and a variety of nesting song birds and water fowl up close and personal through our high-powered scopes. Keep an eye out for majestic bull moose, pronghorn, big horn sheep, black bear and an occasional shy fox or coyote. You may follow the track of a silent wolf or mountain lion. You never know what the day may bring, but you will be pleasantly surprised taking home this once-in-a-life-time experience and new appreciation for nature’s gifts.

Scenic Drives on the CB Ranch are scheduled daily from 8:30am to 11:30am from May through mid- October. During winter months, alternate routes may be available. There is a maximum of five people for each tour.

Photo Safari

Designed for photographers of all levels, our Ranch Photographer will lead this excursion and work alongside guests using a Ranch camera provided, or learn to get the most out of their smartphone or personal digital camera. Customized to the day and the desires of the group – focus on landscapes, wildlife, and/or flora. 

Photo safaris are offered May through mid-October on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30am to 11:30am. There is a maximum of five people for each tour.

Rocky Mountain Road Tour

Tracing the contours of the Bitterroot River, the original road to Darby now runs through the CB Ranch and is rich with both frontier history and current day activity. The ranch is home to our orchards and gardens, as well as our herd of Black Angus cows and a thriving cattle ranch operation. Learn how this tract of land has served different purposes over the years, and how it supports Triple Creek Ranch today.
