Bob Marshall Wilderness Roving Trips
New for 2024, we’re expanding our backcountry wilderness offerings to include roving trips. Our roving trips, as the name implies, move camps during the trip, giving you the chance to overnight in different and beautiful places throughout the duration. They’re also shorter, making it easier to fit into your summer vacation plans.
We have a few types of trips available for this year, with highlights that include the Scapegoat Wilderness, Chinese Wall and the Sun River, all in Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex.
