A multi-day backpacking tour, we’ll travel into the wildest part of the Scapegoat Wilderness with wilderness legend Bill Cunningham and his son, Bryn. Along this route, we’ll hike rugged landscapes, cross remote mountaintops and traverse plateaus as we take in waterfalls, scale the 8,979-foot Evans Peak, experience the famed Scapegoat Plateau, climb Scapegoat Mountain (9202’) and soak up sights that are only seen by those willing to tackle the strenuous trails. Along the way, we’ll have ample opportunities to see wildlife—including mountain goats, bighorn sheep, deer, elk and bears—as well as hike to a historic fire lookout and camp under Montana’s star-filled sky. Sidenote: 75 percent of this trip is off-trail and on rugged terrain. As such, it’s specifically designed for hikers and backpackers with previous experience and the ability to carry a 35-45 pound pack. There is one food drop midway through the trip.
If you seek a wild, rugged, and challenging wilderness experience, this is the trip for you.
