Check out the Custom Hiking trip details below, but if you are wanting something else, then be sure to explore our other summer trips.
We'll depart from the 7 Lazy P guest ranch and drive to the Swift Dam trail head at the mouth of the Birch Creek drainage. Once loaded we'll ride past Swift Reservoir to the South Fork of Birch Creek, and then up the Middle Fork of Birch to our campsite. Total: about 9 miles and 3 hours of riding time
Layover day. Our camp in the Middle Fork of Birch Creek is surrounded by many of the high peaks of the Rocky Mountain Front. There is a hike for any level right out of the camp. If you are a peak bagger, then Mt. Field is a challenging all day trek. Mt. Drouillard is another great option, but a little shorter climb and just as spectacular.
Today, we move camp to Big River Meadows on the west side of the Continental Divide. Hikers will go to the very head of Middle Fork, and then go off-trail over the Divide and down into the meadows. The pack animals and riders will go up the South Fork of Birch and over Gateway Pass. The campsite is a 7 Lazy P crew and guest favorite, with its great panoramic views. Total: about 5 moderate hiking miles and 11 trail miles
Layover day. Again, there are great hiking opportunities in every direction. Big Horn peak is another popular destination. Horseback riders can take a ride up to Crystal Ridge, which is a high vista with loose crystal formations scattered on the ground.
Moving day. We pack up and head back over gateway pass, and down the South Fork of Birch Creek. We turn up Phone Creek to our campsite on Seeding Creek. This is some of the rougher sparse timber country of the front range. This area does not see very many people, and will be just an overnight camp. Those with a little extra energy can make the short hike up to the Divide, between Seeding and the North Fork of Dupuyer Creek for a great look at the rugged peaks and formations of the Rocky Mountain Front. Total: 10 miles and 3 hours of trail time
We load up and head up to the head of Phone Creek at Bloody Hill. This is a good place to see some bighorn sheep. Once at the top, we drop down into the North Fork of the Teton on our way to the trail head, where we will be met by crew from the lodge to take a short vehicle ride back to the 7 Lazy P guest ranch. Total: 11 miles and 3.5 hours.
"We did a pack trip last summer. We had an excellent time. The family, employees included, was so wonderful. Coming from a metropolitan area it was so refreshing to visit somewhere where people are still so friendly. Montana is beautiful and I would highly recommend this company for a pack take on a camping vacation. "
"My family and I had a fantastic experience with 7 Lazy P!! We can’t wait to do it again only this time adding new family members and friends to the experience! "
"Just back from a 7 day trip. Five guests to the South Chinese Wall. Had a great time...beautiful landscape, great campsites...the food was excellent...and the fishing couldn't be better. These are the outfitters you want to choose. "
