Why We Love Backpacking in Montana

Why do we love backpacking trips in Montana? In Montana, there’s a really special mix of big wide-open landscapes framed by rugged and expansive forested mountains. Montana is about big designated Wilderness that protects some of the most beautiful and rugged mountain landscapes anywhere! Our Montana backpacking trips of course includes our wonderful guided hiking in Yellowstone, but outside of the park, we also explore 3 of America’s quintessential big high country wilderness areas. Those areas include the Rocky Mountain Front, a spectacular mostly forested chunk of the vast Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex — where rugged limestone peaks of the Front Range rise dramatically above the western edge of the Great Pains. We also explore the Montana side of the vast Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, along the Idaho border, where towering granite peaks rise above some of the biggest trees and most beautiful lakes in the Rockies. And then, of course, are our treks through the Beartooths, Montana’s highest mountains and one of the largest continuous areas over 10,000 feet above the sea in the U.S.. Plentiful lakes, true glaciers, high elevation forest and towering peaks characterize this classic mountain landscape!

Some come visit our big wilderness under the Big Sky. And you’ll also find that our town trip bases teem with Montana hospitality from the local folks in Gardiner, Bozeman, Missoula  and Great Falls.
