Montana’s Chinese wall is grand. It’s big.
That’s, of course, if you like a 1,000 foot high rock wall escarpment that’s nearly 22-miles long located many, many miles from any road, vehicle, or building. This needs to be on your bucket list of crazy natural wonders to visit. And there’s no better way than with a llama as your trail companion!
The Chinese Wall is located along the famous Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, better known as the CDT. In 1978, US Congress established the historic trail spanning 3,100 miles between Mexico and Canada traveling through 5 states. It’s northern spine travels through Montana and the untamed Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex aka “The Bob”.
The Montana Chinese Wall llama supported backpacking trip is a unique and great way to experience The Bob. Our hike will start out following the CDT and the West Fork South Fork Sun River arriving at the Chinese Wall on Day 2. We’ll spend 2 nights in the region of the Chinese Wall before heading back to the trailhead. As a group, we’ll have many different options for your llama hike including the potential to climb up to the Prairie Reef Lookout Tower, climb up White River pass, fly fish the West Fork South Fork Sun River, or relax beneath the Chinese Wall soaking up its grandeur. Expect to meander through Douglas fir, larch, lodgepole pine, aspen, old burn areas and blankets of wild flowers with the chance to see mountain goats, big horn sheep, elk, deer, bald eagles, osprey and more.
This is a great option for anyone able to hike 6-9 miles a day of moderate terrain with some steep sections. You’ll only need to carry a day pack of foul weather clothing and gear, food, water, and various personal items. Enjoy the hike while your llama trial companion carries your camping gear and food. Come join us for an unforgettable experience!
