Whether you’re an experienced hiker or just like gentle strolls through amazing landscapes, the Montana backcountry that surrounds Upper Canyon offers a variety of terrain just waiting to be explored by foot.
Book a hike with one of our experienced staff to lead you through high mountain peaks and meadows where a diverse wildlife population and an array of colorful wildflowers native to southwest Montana thrive. We’ll be glad to tailor a day out that’s just right for you. Hikes range in distance from two to ten miles, and difficulty levels based on elevation gain and loss so you can choose a hike that fits your fitness and comfort level.
Just bring your favorite boots, a lite daypack, binoculars and a camera and set out on trails right from the ranch. We also provide maps and information on area trails for those times you just want to head off on your own.
Look around the lands of the Ruby Valley and you’ll see evidence of ranches and homesteads dating back to times when the West was still wild and untamed territory. Some still stand today, while others have faded into the pages of the history of the valley through the years.
Talk with us about taking one of our informative and scenic tours and discover our rich and colorful past.
The Ruby Valley is home to a variety of wildlife, from elk and antelope, to mule deer, moose, eagles and osprey. For guests who want the best opportunity to spot the majestic animals and birds who roam and nest in our mountains and valleys, we offer evening wildlife viewing tours once a week.
Ask about booking a wildlife tour with one of our guides and be sure your camera is loaded and ready.
