Gallatin River Horseback, Learn to Fish, & Classic Zip

Begin your day horseback riding with our friends at Broken Hart Ranch. Ride 3 hours up through the Gallatin National Forest at Hellroaring Creek Trail. This is a real Montana trail ride – up switchbacks and over mountain streams through pristine back country. Beautiful views and magical forests await you! This ride is most suited to the adventurous or those with some riding experience. Weight Limit 260 lbs.

After your ride, meet at Montana Whitewater for the afternoon of zip lining! The Classic ZipLine tour is a great introduction to zip lining, with 3 zips and 3 adventure bridges plus a ladder. You will begin by ascending to a tree platform 50 ft in the air, where you will take a leap into the unknown on the first zip. Our second zip line, deemed “The Wiley Wire of the Wild West,” will take you soaring over 800ft across the Gallatin River. Then, strike a pose and show us your zipping style on zip 3, “Grandma’s House,” as you fly over the river and through the woods!

Once you are done zipping, you will head to our Fly Fishing Adventure Center for a Learn to Fly Fish Lesson! The guides will begin with instructions on fish and fish habitat, reading water, identifying insects, selecting flies, and familiarization with fly fishing gear. The course will flow into dry-land casting practice without hooks at targets. Once the group is comfortable with the basics and understand some river safety tips, we will slip on the waders and head to the river in search of the big bite!

This is a very full day of Montana fun! You are also welcome to split the activities into two or three days at the same discounted rate.

 

Each participant will need to purchase a Montana Fishing License prior to the trip. You can buy one at a local retailer or purchase a license online.

Lunch not included. You can purchase lunch between your trips at our Main Office, mile marker 64, a great option if you are doing a packaged activity.
