Bordering the largest wilderness in the lower 48 states, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, horseback riding and packing out of the Stanley Basin is as good as it gets. Ride deep into the mountains, don’t shave, and live like it was a hundred years ago or get the family out on a pony ride. Either way the experience of the Sawtooths, White Clouds and Salmon Rivers on the back of a horse is to be set free amongst the most inspiring ranges on earth.
Trail options splinter in all directions for hundreds of miles from downtown Stanley. A great group of outfitters operate locally and can take you and your group on anything from a day ride to a high mountain lake to a multi-day journey through the wilderness.
