A llama trek that will blow your hair back | 7-day/6-night
Overlooked by the famous Chinese Wall, Scapegoat Mountain is an incredible area to play. A 9,204-foot limestone cliff, Scapegoat Mountain dominates the Scapegoat Wilderness which extends south from the Bob Marshall’s southern borders. The views, the wilderness, and above all, the seclusion rival even that of the Chinese Wall. With the Scapegoat being a lesser know area, you can imagine solitude you’ll have unlike that of Glacier NP or Yellowstone NP.
A very scenic llama trek, the Scapegoat Massif will begin at the North Fork Blackfoot Trailhead hiking into first camp after hiking roughly 6 miles. Our next camp follows the Hobnail Tom Trail for 5 miles to the vacinity of the Carmichael Guard Station.
The next section of the trip takes up, up and over following the southern shoulder of Scapegoat Mountain. We’ll traverse along the base of the mountain before our Camp 3 at the head waters of the Dearborn River. Once on the Dearborn River Trail also known as the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT) we’ll follow it to the the trailhead stopping for one night at Camp 4. As a 7-day trip we can then have a couple of layover days.
Wildlife is abundant in this area in the area with elk and mule deer calling the high basins and subalpine fur home for the summer. Mountain goats can be seen dancing around throughout the rocky walls.
