Surrounded by endless miles of hiking adventure!

The Bitterroot National Forest is a hiker’s paradise. Hiking Trails from the ranch are plentiful, with even more trails located off ranch to alpine destinations. Enjoy hikes along streams, cascading falls, alpine lakes or to the top of the tallest peak in the Bitterroots. Our Chefs will be happy to pack a lunch of your choice in handy backpacks for you to take along.

Self Guided Hiking

You can begin right outside the door of your cabin and explore endless acres into the Bitterroot National Forest for more options and longer hikes. Many off-ranch trails are available for all levels of ability. Hiking to Baker Lake, a secluded alpine lake; Trapper Peak, the highest peak in the Bitterroot Mountain range; Boulder Falls, a cascading fall accessible only by foot or by horse, these are just a few of the many hikes available. Hiking off property will require guests to provide their own vehicle transportation to travel to the hiking location. Whether you choose a ranch hike or an outing off property, we will be happy to supply pre-loaded GPS trackers, trail maps, backpacks, bottled water, picnic lunches, sunscreen, and insect repellant.

Guided Hiking

Custom private guided hiking experiences are also available. These excursions are offered by an experienced local guide at an additional fee, and are booked directly by you so that the entire hike may be fully customized for your individual interests, ability level, & desired hiking time. Your Pre-Arrival Concierge or Activity Director will be happy to assist you in connecting with them to create a new & exciting adventure every time!
