One of the all time “MVP” trips at Bear Creek Ranch

Finally, we’ve put the finishing touches on an elite horseback adventure that has become one of the most in demand year after year. We’ll be riding this coming July, 2022 from the Heart Butte country north almost to the Canadian border. “Off the Beaten Path” says a whole lot! You’re going to see some of the most spectacular country in North America. The “Backbone of the World,” as the Blackfeet call it.
You’ll be horseback and exploring and enjoying the same country the boys from the adventure trip “Unbranded” rode through on their way from Mexico to Canada. Elegant cabin accommodations at night, dinners by “Diana,” and unparalleled beauty all and every day.
We’re crossing Badger Creek in the above photo. We’ll be accompanied by the Johnson family, members of the Blackfeet Nation as we explore the ranch country and do a ride through an age old “Pishkun” or buffalo jump. The bones from thousands of years of buffalo drives rest in the cliffs above Badger Creek. Takes you back!
On occasion, you may find yourself riding with only you and your thoughts for company. The mountains are off in the distance and the clarity of the day is a bit cloudy due to early season forest fires to the west. “The fires always have been and always will be.”
“We’re putting everything we know how to do into this very special horseback riding vacation. No one does it as well. The Off the Beaten Path week at Bear Creek Ranch combines the best in those qualities that make your horseback vacation trip unforgettable, and “Unbranded.”

Back by popular demand. Riding and Brash Rodeo!
It’s mid-August in Montana and the weather is the best there is in Montana! Warm, dry, no bugs, and perfect for the best days of riding there is in this country. And to top it off, we’ll all be going to the Flathead County Fair and Rodeo on Thursday afternoon and evening for some western entertainment, the weekly Brash rodeo at the Fairgrounds. You’ll be staying in a cozy cabin at the ranch and riding some of the greatest country you’ll ever see.
Guests are generally arriving at Glacier International Airport in Kalispell on Sunday, August 21st and will be horseback that afternoon as we do some matching up of horses and saddles. We’ll be going with 8 guests this year and as I mentioned everyone will be staying in a private cabin while we provide all meals including lunch on the trail.
After breakfast each day we’ll be loading up the horses and riding a different bit of country. You’ll be seeing the mountains, foothills, and the deep canyons along the Rocky Mountain Front and on very lightly used trails. We’ll also get off trail and into some of the most awesome western country there is anywhere in the lower 48!
If everything you’ve read sounds good, I’d recommend, when you have a few minutes, to give a call out here and I or my wife Diana can answer questions you’ll be sure to have and we’ll go from there.
And don’t forget, we’ll be watching one of the best small rodeos there is, the local Brash Rodeo  event that will feature some of the sharpest cowboys and cowgirls on the l circuit. One of them is the wife of the cowboy in the photo below who is also a heckuva’ hand and a professional rodeo announcer!
Diana and I are here a good part of the winter so don’t hesitate to call any time.
Happy New Year to All,
Bill and Diana Beck
