South Buffalo Fork Packtrip

Bridger-Teton

A Versatile, Varied Packtrip

Our South Buffalo Fork packtrip begins from Brooks Lake Trailhead at an elevation of 9,050 ft. above sea level and surrounded by the unbelievable beauty of Pinnacle Buttes in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. This trip includes a moderate amount of time on horseback and explores the terrain along the South Buffalo Fork River including Terrace Mountain, South Fork Falls, Pendergraft Peak, and Crater Lake.

On this versatile packtrip we always sleep at least two nights in the same camp, so guests can take a day in camp for relaxing by the river, hiking, or a short horseback ride up the mountain to view wildlife or fly-fishing for several species of trout including Rainbow, Brown and Brook Trout. The highlights of evenings in camp include old-fashioned Dutch-oven meals and campfire stories.

A Day in Camp

Morning & Afternoon

Mornings begin around 8:00 am, at which time your guides will already be catching, feeding, and saddling horses if needed for that day. We meet for a hearty breakfast; pack your lunch and discuss plans for the day. After breakfast, you and your guide ride up the trails on horseback for a full day of fly fishing, trail riding, wildlife viewing, or hiking. Once we reach a vantage point we stop for lunch and some relaxation. For wildlife viewing, our time and effort is focused on areas where we have historically found and recently located elk, deer, moose, sheep, and black bear. We spend time glassing and locating wildlife with binoculars and can hike or ride to a vista for photos.

Evenings

Guides will have you back in camp at sunset, at which time the cook will have your meal prepared. Kick your boots off and tell stories of the day over a hearty supper in the dinner tent.
