    WILDLIFE VIEWING & EXPLORATION

    For guests who want the best opportunity to spot the majestic animals and birds who roam and nest in Montana’s mountains and valleys, UCO offers evening wildlife viewing tours once a week. The Ruby Valley is home to a variety of wildlife, from elk and antelope, to mule deer, moose, eagles and osprey. You can also book a hike with one of their experienced staff to lead you through high mountain peaks and meadows where a diverse wildlife population and an array of colorful wildflowers thrive. Whether you’re an experienced hiker or just like gentle strolls through amazing landscapes, the backcountry that surrounds Upper Canyon offers a variety of terrain. Hikes range in distance from two to ten miles, and difficulty levels based  on elevation gain and loss. You can choose a hike that fits your fitness and comfort level. UCO also provides maps and information on area trails for those times you just want to head off on your own.

    HISTORICAL HOMESTEAD TOURS

    Take an informative and scenic tour to discover Ruby Valley’s rich and colorful past. Look around and you’ll see evidence of ranches and homesteads dating back to times when the West was still wild and untamed. Some still stand today, while others have faded into the pages of the history of the valley through the years.

    You can also see the beauty of the Montana backcountry from a different perspective by exploring its varied terrain from the passenger seat in one of UCO’s 4×4 Rangers. These excursions are fully guided and available in three different length options to fit your needs.
