Upper Dearborn River Llama Trek

Great fishing, beautiful landscape | 4-day/3-night

Llama thru hike pack trips require each day to break camp, pack up and move for the day then setup camp again each day. Thru hikes are a great way to see a lot of country but do require earlier morning rises, packing/unpacking each day, and require us to reach camp each day to make sure we stay on schedule.

Llama Basecamps, on the other hand, really should be called Llama Glamping Pack Trips! We pack in for several miles, setup camp for 3 nights then return back to the trailhead. The Upper Dearborn River is a perfect Llama Basecamp with 2 layover days to maximize fly fishing, photography, rest and relaxation.

The Upper Dearborn river is fairly abundant with fish for the avid fisherman. With an average of 12-inch fish, stories are told echoing off the canyon walls that 18-inch monsters have risen from the bottom of the deepest pools. August is a great time for fly fishing the Dearborn with hoppers bouncing from rock to rock along the shores waiting for the most eager of fish. This is a very low pressure river since these upper stretches require a little more effort.

This llama supported backcountry adventure is unique in that we setup a llama basecamp. Llama thru hike trips require each day to break camp, pack up and move for the day then setup camp again. Thru hikes are a great way to see a lot of country but earlier morning rises, packing/unpacking each day, and require the group to reach camp each day to stay on schedule.

Trip Dates: August 6-9, 2018

We’ll have 2 layover days with opportunities to climb up to the actual Continental Divide for spectacular views the Scapegoat Wilderness, continue up the Dearborn River exploring its banks, or hike into the Carmichael Basin. Or if we decide, we can spent time around camp.
