A fantastic outfitter that allows you enjoy everything the Bob Marshall has to offer while taking care of the little details that make the big difference. The meals and sleeping quarters are only amplified by the stories as you stoke the wood stove under the stars in Montana.

As I write this, the Bob is already buried under feet of snow, but in early September, we were heading in for a grand adventure. The week-long stock-supported hiking trip into Birch Creek and Big River Meadows was my first, but probably not my last. We had bluebird weather the first four days and scant rain after that. I figure we hiked close to 60 miles through late-summer foliage, through gorges, up and down drainages, over ridges and mountains (and back down!). We saw black bears, moose, goats, a blur of a wolf, griz tracks and an abundance of wildflowers. Maggie and Ali, and Bryn and D.D. (and Rosie and the horses and mules) took great care of us, from sun-up coffee to delicious dinners and wine and blister care. It was a memorable trip and I'm recommending Dropstone to all my hiking friends.

Thanks for the kind words. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place and get to share it with such sporting people. Indeed! the Bob is already buried in a couple of feet of snow. Maybe we'll have another awesome wildflower year in 2020. Here's to hoping so!

This trip is for an adventurous soul wanting to experience nature at it's most beautiful while challenging oneself physically! My daughter and I were there in June 2019 and the vista spectacular, wildflowers in full bloom and delightful people to laugh and solve the world's problems with:) The hiking challenging but flexible and our trip was stock supported meaning most gear carried up and out. We had fantastic guides. Capable cowgirls Yve and Maggie running the show with other staff and luckily, a naturalist along. Food fantastic and great to have a glass of wine at the end of a perfect day. Already planning next year!

Our 6 day, stock-supported "backpacking" adventure along the wild and beautiful Rocky Mountain Front was nothing less than spectacular! Maggie, Yve, Ali, and Eva of Dropstone Outfitting made it all possible! You won't believe how hard these ladies work to make your trip safe and enjoyable! The food was great. The wine I hold responsible for my surprising discovery that my weight remained the same after all that daily exercise! If you want to experience an intimate connection with the great outdoors, meet new and interesting friends who share your love of nature, and stretch your legs on no-pressure hikes for some wonderfully scenic exercise, then connect with Dropstone. They will get you there, and without you having to carry more than a comfortable day pack. The abundance and variety of wildflowers was more than we expected, a feast for our senses. Our naturalist guide Eric Bergman (groundworksfarmmt.com), hired by Dropstone for this particular trip, freely shared his extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area and was a wonderful element of the trip we had not expected. The scenery - well, you just won't believe it unless you see it for yourself! This was our second trip with Dropstone Outfitting, and both have been wonderful, unforgettable experiences! My hat is off to the gals of Dropstone Outfitting!

We received record amounts of rain (seven inches) on this trip, but evacuated by foot safely and were able to camp in a beautiful spot and do day hikes. The Dropstone staff is professional, caring and flexible, even when Mother Nature throws punches. This is my third trip with these outfitters and all trips have been outstanding.
