We operate in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, mainly the Great Bear section, located in Northwestern Montana, just south of Glacier National Park. This Area encompasses thousands of acres centered along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains along the Continental Divide.
What is Wilderness?
The Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex consists of The Great Bear, Bob Marshall, and Scapegoat Wilderness areas making it over a million acres. This land was set aside by the Federal Government to be kept as close as possible to the untamed frontier. Nothing with a wheel or a motor is allowed. All travel is by foot or horseback, with the exception of a backcountry airstrip located in the heart of the Wilderness at Schaffer Meadows Ranger Station. We operate under permits issued by the USDA Forest Service that limit the number of guests we can escort through this unique area.
Is nestled between Glacier National Park and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex, right on Highway 2. We are at the southern end of a small mountain valley that was once the home of McCarthyville, a rough and rowdy frontier railroad town from 1890 – 1892. At it’s peak the town was home to 32 saloons and more than 1000 people.
Most summer evenings we can be found practicing for rodeos or other horse events in the arena. Public is welcome to stop by. During summer months, there is a local rodeo in Columbia Falls at the Blue Moon on Thursdays , our crew enters as often as possible. Schedule can be seen at Brash Rodeo, Kalispell on Facebook.
It is thirty eight miles east of West Glacier, Montana and eighteen miles west of East Glacier. The Flathead Valley is accessible by air through Glacier International Airport (current airlines: Horizon/Alaska, Skywest/Delta, United, Allegient). By rail (Amtrak), and by auto (US Highway 93 and US Highway 2). You may also fly into Great Falls International Airport (Alaska, Allegient, Delta, United). There is also the option of flying directly into the backcountry via bush plane.
