7 Views Worth Booking a 2019 Summer Pack Trip in Montana

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is a place you have to see to believe. And one of the best ways to see this place we affectionately call our backyard is on a guided pack trip with an experienced outfitter. While we could tell you all the reasons to book a trip for 2019, we thought we’d show you 7 VIEWS WORTH BOOKING A SUMMER PACK TRIP.

1. The Chinese Wall

2. White River

3. Mountains, Rivers and Montana’s Big Sky 

Looking back toward White River and mountains that seem to go on forever.


4. Montana Magic (also known as Perfect Light)  

This trail is a short walk from our camp at White River.


5. Gladiator Mountain 

While the Chinese Wall gets a lot of the attention, Gladiator Mountain has an unexpected (and jaw-dropping) open meadow, complete with wildflowers.


6. This Perfect Montana Moment  

Climbing up toward White River Pass.
