Revel in the remote beauty of the Scapegoat Wilderness.  The Chinese Wall may get all the hype but the Scapegoat Wilderness’ own limestone escarpment is equally impressive.  The crowning features of the Scapegoat are the Scapegoat Wall, towering 1,000 feet above the basin below, and high plateaus that stretch for several miles along the Continental Divide.  The sheer immensity of the Scapegoat inspires reverence and awe.  Because of the limestone geology of the area, there are many geologic treasures to discover ranging in size from the tiniest fossil to large caves that extend 100’s of feet into the Continental Divide itself.

On this trip we trek to the Divide and camp along the base of the Scapegoat Wall as we spring out to climb a few of the surrounding mountains, take a swim in cerulean waters and explore a landscape that holds artifacts dating back over 10,000 years. We travel using a combination of stock support and good old fashioned backpacking to access more remote areas. This is easy country to get around in and sports a dynamic landscape to enjoy.

This is a perfect trip for those who are looking for wilderness exploration and lots of time up high.  Please call or email for more details.

7 – 12+ mile travel days with some days having a combined change in elevation totaling 2,500 feet, or more, over several miles. Off-trail hiking and routing finding with short portions of limited exposure possible.

7 – 12+ mile days with regular changes in elevation over a few miles. Frequent off-trail hiking over uneven terrain with areas of exposure and route finding involved. Previous backcountry experience required.

*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 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.
