Our West Glacier Corral is conveniently located on Highway 2, just 1.5 miles outside the West entrance of Glacier National Park. You will check in for your ride at the Activity Desk inside the Crown of the Continent Discovery Center. Our Cowboy Cookout Ride departs from behind the building and head out onto land managed by the United States Forest Service: These trails are NOT inside Glacier National Park.
COWBOY COOKOUT RIDE
2 hours in the saddle, plus quality time around the campfire!
9/26/21- 10/10/21: This offering will check-in at 9 am. You will have more time in the saddle (price increases too) and your meal will be enjoyed as lunch rather than dinner. Expect to be with us until about 3 pm.
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 as the daylight hours shrink). 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.
Additional time for paperwork, safety briefing, and loading process is not counted in “time in the saddle” please plan for an extra 45 minutes for the check-in process.
Riders must be 7 years or older. Riders must be 250 pounds or less, but riders under 6 feet tall should be no more than 225 pounds. After September 15th, all riders must be no more than 225 pounds.
If members of your group are unable to ride, please ask us for meal-only pricing. These group members can enjoy an activity of their own while riders are on the trail, they can then re-join the riders around the campfire to enjoy the cookout together.
