Scenic Wilderness Pack Trips
Horseback Riding, Wildlife viewing, Sightseeing, Photography, & Fishing
Experience wild Wyoming with overnight pack trips to some of its most remote and rugged places.
Get the farthest from a road possible in the continental U.S. Cross the Continental Divide. See the peaceful Yellowstone Meadows. Hear the rush of waterfalls, the calming flow of fish-filled streams, and backcountry lakes.
Your itinerary will vary depending on when you go, the length of your trip, and what you want to experience, but prepare for Wyoming horseback rides like no other.

Just like our trail rides, all pack trips depart from our Turpin Meadows Base Camp (See map below.)
Destinations and sightseeing vary widely from trip to trip:
- Yellowstone Meadows
- Headwaters of the Yellowstone River
- Two Ocean Pass and Continental Divide
- Ferry Lake, Crater Lake, and Big Springs in Soda Fork of the Buffalo River
- Pendergraft Peak and Upper and Lower Pendergraft Meadows
- South Fork Falls on the South Fork of the Buffalo
At Yellowstone Outfitters backcountry camps, the only thing you need to worry about is how much hearty, appetizing food you want to eat. We take care of all the meal planning and prep so you can enjoy the Teton Wilderness like you should.
Horseback Riding Skill Level:
Don't let inexperience on a horse change your mind. You'll mount up on well-trained horses hand-paired to your riding ability by our expert wranglers.
Each horse knows how to treat riders well. If you're nervous about difficult terrain, we can make sure your group heads somewhere spectacular based on what you want. Wildflower meadows, Rocky Mountain ridgelines, or scenic fishing spots are all in reach.
We happily accommodate fishing on the scenic pack trips, but we offer Fly Fishing focused trips designed specifically for more serious anglers.
