At a Glance

A vast, wild region gifted with sparsely populated expanses of ranch lands and unspoiled mountains laden with thick forests, southwest Montana invokes the pioneer spirit by reminding us that before we could develop the West, a brave few had to venture before us to tame these lands so rough and remote. Saddle up with your grandchild to discover a historic chapter of the Wild West’s amazing tale, with teachers, naturalists and historians along for the ride to lead you through once-uncharted territory.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Ride horseback along historic trails and visit the Sacajawea Historic Area to learn about Lewis and Clark’s expedition on Lemhi Pass.
  • Go fly casting and fishing with experts who help you to understand the ecology of southwest Montana streams and the native fish that fill them.
  • Encounter Gold Rush ghost towns, sit for a lesson in a pioneer-era one-room school house and take in a 19th-century melodrama performed in a historic opera house.
