The Badger-Two Medicine Loop is a great survey of this undesignated but truly wild landscape. Our route will take us along the Two Medicine River and deep into the heart of Badger Country to experience this remote landscape and 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 is as beautiful and wild as both. 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.
Our route will take us through the Two Medicine River drainage and over the watershed divide into true Badger Country. Two camps provide guests with layovers that give them the option to hike to the Continental Divide, climb Half Dome Crag or take a long ridgetop stroll. 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 trip’s basic route is moderate, but if you opt for the more challenging day hikes on layover days you are rewarded with heart-lifting mountain views and stunning high-elevation strolls.
Please note: this 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
