the choice is yours!
Travel by horseback, 4x4 truck, hike or bike. The trip down to the river from Siwash Lake is 1½ - 3 hours, based on guest preference, and same for the way back, following a different path. On route you'll journey through the after effects of the wildfire that swept through in summer of 2017 and learn all about this rare and unique ecosystem.
Our trails weave in and out of wildfire affected areas and islands of lush green refugia — plenty of pristine forest and meadows that escaped the flames. You will also see secluded wilderness lakes that attract various waterfowl and wildlife, and wide open range with expansive grasslands.
At the river, you will have a couple of hours to explore and relax during this authentic adventure in the wilds. If you arrived on horseback, your guide will take off bridles and loosen cinches so that your trusty mounts can be haltered and rest quietly nearby.
