Family Dude and Guest Ranch

The T Cross Dude Ranch lies inside the Shoshone National Forest at an elevation of 7,800 feet, surrounded by an untouched country of pine forests and open meadows, trout-rich streams and small lakes, country that is scenically magnificent. The country is unforgettable, with the Absaroka mountain peaks soaring to over 13,000 feet around the ranch. This land has been carved naturally by water, wind, and glaciers. Horseback is the only way to see this country.

This spectacular mountain range is home to a variety of wildlife that evoke a feeling of true wilderness. Bighorn sheep, moose, elk, mountain goats, mule deer, and wolves populate these forests. Eagles, falcons and hawks soar among the crags, while smaller mammals like coyotes, fox, badgers and marmots raise families in these wildlands. One of the most intractable and stirring species in this wilderness is the grizzly bear; the Absarokas are one of the last strongholds of the great bear.

With a string of over 60 horses, there's the perfect mount for every guest. Our wranglers are experienced cowboys with literally thousands of miles on horseback under their belts. This is western riding in its purest form, the way it originated, the way few people experience it. Sit back and enjoy the ride—the cowboys will take good care of you and your family.

Private log cabins are decorated with a late 19th century feel, enveloping guests in rustic elegance. Furniture is all hand-built and attention paid to authentic detailing. Each cabin includes a private bath, and one or several bedrooms. The guest ranch welcomes couples, families, or single guests.
