I was fortunate enough to take my first pack trip with JJJ Wilderness Ranch and it was truly an unforgettable adventure! Ernie and Kim went the extra mile to make sure our every need was met. Jack knocked it out of the park with our meals each day--from a delicious hot breakfast before we set out, lunches that were packed... More

Definitely a 10! That’s how my daughter responded when asked about our horse pack trip into Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness with the Triple J Wilderness Ranch. The wilderness, the outfitter, and the magic combined to make this one of our most memorable experiences. If you are searching for a wilderness adventure that is remote, rugged, with spectacular vistas, you won’t... More

I was fortunate enough to join a pack trip with the JJJ through a last minute invitation to fill a vacancy of a guest who unfortunately had to cancel due to illness. I could not be happier with my decision to go on this trip. The JJJ Ranch is absolutely beautiful - their cabins are well thought out and very... More

This was my second trip to Triple J (2014 solo ranch vacation!), but my first pack trip! My boyfriend and I had the most incredible experience of our lives with Ernie, Kim and the rest of the Triple J crew on this unforgettable, life changing experience. We went in August to The Chinese Wall in the Bob Marshall Wilderness -... More

There were 10 of us on this pack trip in September 2015 and I must say it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. We use to take pack trips out for a living in Wyoming. The "Bob Marshall Wilderness" was fabulous!!! The riding was great and the scenery was unbelievable. The horses were well trained and... More

I had read the excellent reviews regarding Triple J as a dude ranch destination and so therefore was looking forward to my Wilderness Trip with the same ranch.

This is a difficult review to read and requires much clarification. This pack-trip was scheduled as a 7 day Chinese Wall trip. The day before the trip was to depart, the US Forest Service closed the trail route due to active forest fires so the entire trip had to be re-routed south in order to still get to the Chinese...

From the pick up at the airport to the drop off at the airport we couldn't be happier with this wonderful ranch. The staff was awesome, the food was great and the atmosphere was perfect.

It's hard to put into words how wonderful our experience was at the Triple J. We travel often to various locations and I can positively say that this was absolutely the most memorable trip we've ever made. Our family of four from Minnesota made this our temporary home for a week in July 2015. The owners, Kim & Ernie Barker,... More

Located 45 minutes from a small town next to the "Bob" wilderness, the Triple JJJ has a strong western riding program to accommodate every level of rider. We had an adult advanced western rider, intermediate nine-year-old English rider, and an adult non-rider in our party and we all had a great time at the Triple JJJ. The wranglers have excellent...
