Project Description

Lying at the foot of the Flathead Alps in the heart of The Bob, Big Prairie is an iconic wilderness destination with crystal clear night skies and some of the best fishing in the lower 48. Spend 9 days immersed in Wilderness while clearing summit trails to Butcher Mountain and Tilson Peak. Be prepared for long approach hikes and hearty days of cross-cut work, but with rewarding scenery and experiences! A day off in the middle of the week will allow you time to put your feet up at the historic Big Prairie Wilderness Ranger Station where the Rangers will give you a fine "howdy do."
