This classic trip along the Front is a favorite of guests and staff alike for its magnificent vistas, abundant wildflowers, and unique geology. We traverse the iconic Rocky Mountain Front, with two layover days to give guests the opportunity to relax, enjoy the flowers, or explore the Blind Horse Bench and beyond.
The route travels along the face of the Rocky Mountain Front, traversing fecund benches filled with wildflowers and waterfalls. While the trip is visually stunning, it is also challenging as we make our way in and out of several deep drainages. Apart from these climbs, the trail is gentle and full of ever-changing scenery.
This is a great trip to start your season, and it’s one of the few times of the year we are able to travel the route in its entirety. Difficulty is moderately strenuous, but the two layover days provide a good option for those who are interested but feeling tentative. Warning: The Rocky Mountain Front Traverse is known to be a gateway drug!
