The Bitterroot cattle spend the summer starting in July grazing on the adjacent national forest land. The spring drive week at the ranch includes one day of pushing the herd to their grazing allotment, with additional opportunities for cow work during your stay. The rest of your rides are spent on the trail in the spectacular landscape of this unique property.
The ranch is surrounded by the Shoshone National Forest and a 52,000 acre wildlife refuge. The terrain is extremely varied; sagebrush plains, grassy meadows and rocky gorges give way to forested mountains and alpine clearings. The Fox family owners place a strong emphasis on their riding program, and provides several horses for each guest, splitting the rides into small groups according to ability.
If you’re interested in additional opportunities for working with cattle, the fall gathering at the Bitterroot takes place the last week of September, or you could also consider our cattle drives and horseback riding vacations in Arizona and Utah.
