As part of your stay at the Covered Wagon Ranch, you may want to add a pack trip to your adventure. Our pack trips into the stunning backcountry of the Lee Metcalf Wilderness will take you on the journey of a lifetime. Departing by horseback, we will climb steep mountain ridges, fjord the cool crystal rivers and streams of the Wilderness, and travel through lush alpine meadows before reaching camp.
Our campsites are comfortable and picturesque. You will sleep warm and soundly inside your tent or beneath a blanket of stars. Let the trickle of the nearby mountain creek lull your senses to sleep. Then in the morning, be awakened by the warm sun tickling your nose and the smell of freshly brewed coffee on the fire.
Camp is an excellent place to relax and soak up the wonder of God’s Country. Spend your time exploring the wilds of the wilderness by horseback. If you are a writer, bring your journal; if you paint, bring your easel and canvas. Perhaps you appreciate your surroundings through photography, music or simply reading. Whatever your pleasure, camp life will clear your mind, invigorate your spirit and provide you with plenty of time to indulge and challenge yourself.
We maintain our tradition of personal attention to each guest by keeping our pack trips small (no more than five). You can then enjoy two refreshing nights with us in camp. Because of the terrain we require intermediate to experienced riders and a minimum of 14 years of age. Experience nature not just away from the city, but in its most raw and most spectacular form; the heart of the wilderness!
