Montana Alpine Lake Llama Trek

Located in Southwest Montana north of Dillon and near the Big Hole River, the mountains are a hidden gem for recreational enthusiasts. The area is rich in cultural history with many old log cabins and outbuildings representing prospectors, homesteaders and ranchers inhabited the area more than 100 years ago. Montana Llama Guides is authorized to use or occupy National Forest System lands to provide outfitting and guiding services within the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest.

The west side of the range is what you’d expect in Yellowstone National Park, the mountains are more rounded, lower in elevation with peaks just reaching over 9000 feet and several lakes surrounded by dense lodge pole pine forest and big open meadows.

In contrast, the east side is more of an alpine playground. More than 50 peaks exceed 10,000 feet; many of the remain unnamed with nearly 60 lakes at timberline with rocky jagged slopes and tallus fields coming down to the lakes. Many of the alpine lakes will stay frozen and snowed covered until late June and, in some years, well into July.

Come join us for solitude and serenity as we explore the high alpine lakes that are great for fishing and relaxing. Grab your binoculars to witness the incredible mountain goats as they dance along the high ridge lines. Or put your climbing boots on and let’s tackle an alpine peak. You’ll be impressed with the view.
