Swan Full Day Trail Ride

Swan Mountain Outfitters offers spectacular longer duration trail rides (6 to 8 hours) that include lunch and a stopover at an unforgettable spot. More experienced riders just love this opportunity to ride by horseback high above the valley floor to see the awe-inspiring views of the Mission and Swan Mountains that form the infamous Swan Valley. We usually ride up the Lion Creek drainage paralleling the creek the majority of the ride. Imagine having lunch with your toes soaking in the cool water of the creek, or taking pictures of a waterfall cascading over 100 feet!  

Similar to our short duration rides, our all day rides launch from our base camp off of Lion Creek Road in the Flathead National Forest. We like to get an early morning start, and after fitting stirrups and our safety/training briefing we’re off!
