From the clear waters of the North Fork of the Blackfoot to the views on top of Jumbo Lookout to the grand escarpment of Hoadley Reef, this trip has a little bit of everything and a whole lot of wilderness beauty. On this 8-day adventure, we will hike through a significant portion of the southern Bob Marshall Wilderness, exploring three different watersheds along the way.
As colors start to turn and nights become crisp, we’ll travel up the Dry Fork of the Blackfoot and over into the historic Danaher Meadows area and the headwaters of the South Fork of the Flathead River. We will hike to the “triple watershed divide” of the Blackfoot, Sun, and Flathead rivers where we will also see the western edge of the Scapegoat Plateau and the long rise of Flint Mountain. We’ll visit Jumbo Lookout, allowing us to peer into the heart of the South Fork River Valley. On our way over the Continental Divide, we will stop for a few days to explore a high mountain basin framed by a towering reef extending along the wild Divide.
Exploration, big vistas, changing colors, and an occasional elk bugle are just a few of the many things that make this trip a Bob Marshall Wilderness classic. We don’t offer this trip very often, so join us for a rare opportunity to venture into this area of the Bob.
