Summer trip info and photos
Elk Ridge Outfitters offers a nice change in summer vacations, we have a variety of interests and scenery all nestled in the heart of one of Montana's best kept secrets, we invite you to join us for an outdoor venture as we explore the Shields river valley.
Horseback Rider's: We have room to roam, and spectacular places to see. We can arrange nearly every type of riding adventure, from an easy slow ride for the inexperienced, to a challenging ride for the more adventurous. So you decide what your interest level might be. Our riding is done in western saddles, but have a few English riders who enjoy bringing their own saddles.
Fishermen: Yes we have trout fishing and if you can't catch one here well; we don't know what to tell ya. We can offer you the chance and excitement of fishing a high alpine lake, or the intensity of fishing a fast moving creek, and even the relaxation of fishing from a boat in a quiet pond. We practice a catch and release policy in many of our fishing areas, so as to help insure continued good fishing for years to come.
Hiker's: You will be happy to find terrain that can offer you a challenge, and also relaxed easy hiking, which ever you choose. Along your journey you may see many different types of wildlife, such as deer, elk, moose, antelope and if you dare venture to the mountain tops; you could expect to see mountain goats, and hopefully a bear, mountain lion or wolverine. Don't forget to take the time to enjoy the thousands of wildflowers the area has to offer. There is nothing more beautiful than a meadow filled with forget-me-nots or a hill side of balsamroot, You won't want to miss anything.
Bird Watcher's: You will be amazed at the different species of raptor's that inhabit this area, Some seasonal like the bald eagle, but many more that soar the big sky year around. Some of the other birds you'll see will range from the friendly chickadee to the interesting sage grouse.
