Our original Living the Cowgirl Life trip has been so popular that we're are adding a new ranch in 2021. The Bitterroot Ranch is a hidden gem - listed in the popular book "1,000 Places to See Before You Die", we know you're going to love it! Just two hours outside of Grand Teton National Park, lies this spacious dude ranch close to where the legendary Butch Cassidy had a hideout! The ranch is a family owned and operated retreat center. Take a deep breath and relax, because everything is taken care of - all you have to do is show up! Unplug and reconnect with the natural world while staying as busy or as free as you'd like. Resident wrangler and owner Hadley is also a certified yoga teacher with a dedicated yoga yurt on property- namaste cowgirls. Each day will be a 'choose your own adventure' buffet of riding, hiking and fishing, with delicious western cuisine in between. Maximum group size: 20

We have rated this trip as a 2 because of the wide variety of options available every day. You might choose half-day horseback rides with afternoons spent reading a book or soaking your feet in the river; or you might ride as much as possible each day with fishing and hiking occupying the rest of your time. The level of activity is up to you. For trips that are rated a 1-2, participants should be walking regularly at a brisk pace 3 to 4 days a week for 35 - 45 minutes prior to trip beginning. Rating: 1  3 4 5.
This itinerary hinges around horseback riding but there is something for everyone at Bitterroot Ranch. Each cowgirl will be matched with her perfect well trained horse at the beginning of the week and receive tips and tricks to learn or improve her riding skills over the course of lessons and trail rides. In addition to riding, you can learn the basics of fly fishing and then practice in the nearby river or stocked pond. There is a network of easy to follow trails on property and by the river for self guided hikes too. Reading a book on the front porch of the lodge is always an option too!
The Bitterroot Ranch is located along the East Fork of the Wind River and guests stay in private log cabins situated on either side of the stream. An attempt has been made to retain the authenticity and rustic charm of a bygone era, which is reflected in the atmosphere of the cabins and old main lodge with its huge stone fireplaces and broad porch where guests gather for meals and relaxing evenings. The cabins have been carefully furnished and decorated throughout the over 40 years the Bitterroot has been open as a guest ranch. Many of the cabins have an interesting history but they have been modernized over the years; all have electric heat and showers, most have bathtubs and some have wood burning stoves. 2 cabins have 3 beds in them, the rest of our reserved cabins have 2 beds in each. There are 4 single rooms available on this trip.
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
