Description

Explore the wild Badger Two Medicine and experience first-hand why permanent protection for this special and rugged landscape is so important. Our route will take us along the Two Medicine River and deep into the heart of Badger country. Along the way, you will learn about the history of the area, the challenges it has faced, and the bright future so many in the conservation community and Blackfeet Nation have been working for.

The Badger-Two Medicine is a place of wonder. It is not part of Glacier National Park or the Bob Marshall Wilderness, but it is every bit as beautiful, wild, and remote. The area has experienced political and physical changes in recent years, including ongoing controversy over old oil and gas leases and land management. Additional changes have included the removal of motorized travel from its trail system and forest fires in recent years.

Camps provide guests with layover days with the option to hike to nearby peaks or stroll along the spine of the Continental Divide. For those wanting to stay closer to camp, there are opportunities for shorter scenic hikes, a lazy day along Badger Creek, or the chance to wet a fishing line.

This trips basic route is moderate, but if you opt for the more challenging day hikes on layover days, you’ll be rewarded with heart-lifting mountain views and stunning high-elevation strolls.

Please note: the trip requires guests to purchase a recreation pass from the Blackfeet tribal government. This can be done online and costs $20; we will assist you with this process.

This trip has been booked by a private group.

*Please note these descriptions are used for travel days only and are our attempt to provide a rating for the overall trip difficulty. On layover days we will offer optional hiking opportunities that may not be in keeping with the rest of the trip difficulty rating.

Additionally, changes in elevation are meant to represent the days’ starting and ending elevations, but not necessarily the total elevation lost and gained throughout the course of the day. If you have questions or concerns regarding trip difficulty and your abilities please contact us.
