Cowboy Cookout

The Cookout combines the favorite Montana pastimes of horseback riding and having a steak! Your cookout adventure begins with a two to three hour horseback ride through a beautiful Lodgepole Pine tree forest with views into Glacier and of the surrounding mountains. After the ride you will enjoy a light appetizer while your guide prepares a traditional cowboy dinner of steaks over open flame, corn on the cob, baked beans, green salad and a roll. Hang out by the fire with s’mores for dessert while enjoying the sunset. The corral is just a short walk back from the dinner spot whenever you finish!

Wine and Cheese Llama Trek

Guests have their choice in the summer months of a pre or post dinner wine and cheese llama trek. Those that select the pre-dinner trek, typically arrive at Swan Mountain Ranch at 4:30 pm for their wine and cheese affair with a llama. Post-dinner treks begin at 7:00 pm. We will pack the llamas with our goodies, chairs, tables, etc. and then head out into the Swan River State Forest after a briefing on llama facts and safety. We typically head to a ridgetop in the Swan River State Forest where we can drink up the beauty of the Swan Valley as the llamas watch us partake in the spoils they were kind enough to pack in for us. Don’t be shocked if we slip in a little chocolate in our basket to “cleanse” the taste buds before we lead our llamas back to the ranch.

Apgar Lookout

This half day ride takes you through the 2003 Roberts Fire burn area, to the NPS fire lookout tower atop Apgar Mountain. The bare trees from the burn have opened up incredible views that keep getting better as you climb to the top. Once you reach the top, you are treated to panoramic views of the Lake McDonald Valley, the North Fork, the Bad Rock Canyon and even glimpses of the Great Bear Wilderness. There is very little tree cover so bring sunscreen and water. This trail is not recommended for the beginner rider due to the steepness (2500 foot elevation gain) and has a four person minimum.
