COWBOY COOKOUT RIDE
The Cowboy Cookout combines the favorite Montana pastimes of horseback riding and having a steak, but adds a little more adventure! You’ll check in at the West Glacier Corral at 3:30 pm (this time is subject to change for late season trips). Your cookout adventure begins with a 2 hour horseback ride providing fantastic views of Strawberry Mountain and into Glacier National Park. As you ride through an aspen/lodgepole forest, keep an eye out for the wide variety of seasonal wild flowers and wildlife. Once you arrive at our cookout camp, you’ll dismount your horses and enjoy a light appetizer as your guide prepares a traditional cowboy dinner of steaks over open flame, corn on the cob, green salad, a roll and s’mores for dessert. Alcoholic beverages are not included, but please ask us if you’d like to add a unique Montana made wine, beer or spirit to your meal. You’ll be within walking distance of the Discovery Center after dinner and enjoy a quiet stroll back to your car with a full belly and a smile on your face just as the sun sets over a perfect Montana evening.
ALL DAY COWBOY COOKOUT RIDE – AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 19TH – OCTOBER 12th
When the days get shorter and the nights are chillier, we combine two of our favorite summer time trips – the all day ride and the cowboy cookout – into one amazing, full day, fall adventure with the All Day Cowboy Cookout Ride! Guests check in at the West Glacier Corral behind the Crown of the Continent Discovery Center at 9:00 in the morning. We will ride through the Flathead National Forest for approximately 1.5 hours enjoying the spectacular Fall colors of the aspen/lodgepole forest. Once you arrive at our cookout camp, you’ll dismount your horses and enjoy a light appetizer as your guide prepares a traditional cowboy feast for lunch, complete with steaks over open flame, corn on the cob, green salad, a roll and s’mores for dessert. Once you have had your fill, we’ll mount back up on the horses and hit the trail for the return ride arriving back to the Corral at about 3pm. In the interest of safety alcoholic beverages are not included in the meal or permitted on this trip.
*Please note that because of all the behind-the-scenes help that go into these trips (staff that prepare the food and pack the coolers, staff that cook and serve the food, wranglers that groom and tack up your horses, wranglers that guide you on your trail ride, still other wranglers that untack and turn out the horses and finally staff that clean up after the cookout is complete), an 18% gratuity will be added to the cost of your Cowboy Cookout and distributed among all staff.
