Guests will really love this upscale ranch on the border of Yellowstone National Park in Montana. Tom Miner Basin has spectacular mountains on either side, beautiful Tom Miner Creek running down the middle of it, and the Yellowstone River running through Paradise Valley down below. Bears, wolves, elk, deer, moose, eagles, and many more species of wildlife thrive on the ranch with the Angus cows and the herd of horses. The lodge provides a perfect setting for enjoying these treasures.
Unique Features: The riding program is about a personalized experience. They try to give every group the right experience for them. The wranglers will talk with you every evening about the next day. They will match you up with the perfect horse from the herd and find the ride that fits your experience, abilities, and what you want to do.
Accommodations: At Six Quarter Circle Ranch, they provide first-class lodging and dining to complement your cattle drive experience. The lodge rooms all have gorgeous views, tile bathrooms, log beds with Pendleton blankets, and a unique touch of Western character.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the lodge rooms. All rooms are equally as nice.
Dining: After a long day on the trail and a hot bath, you can gather in the Rocky Mountain Spirits Bar. Choose from a wide selection of domestic and premium beers and fine California and Northwest wines. Dinner is prepared by a professional chef and includes dishes such as beef wellington or walleye with a lemon caper sauce and accompaniments such as French Onion soup or risotto. Mouthwatering desserts are prepared daily by the pastry chef. They are happy to provide vegetarian meals and to accommodate any special nutritional requests.
Activities: At Six Quarter Circle you can ride all day, everyday, on 25 square miles of pristine wilderness on the edge of Yellowstone National Park.

And you are welcome to bring your own horse, board and feed are included.
