Once everyone is set to go, head off on the trail into the Great Bear Wilderness with rafts loaded on the pack string, following close behind.  Snowy Springs Outfitters provides the horses and pack portion of this trip. Middle Fork Flathead Ride and Raft The Middle Fork Flathead River is a very popular destination for day whitewater rafting trips. Bordering both Glacier National Park and the Great Bear Wilderness, the scenery is awesome and the emerald watercolor is stunning. This trip is so unique and special because you can avoid the crowds on the normal day section when we pack upstream into the wilderness and start our float above all the other day trips. There are only two outfitters who operate under a special use permit and are allowed to run the wilderness section of the Middle Fork Flathead. This combined with the Spruce Park Gorge being the best whitewater on the Middle Fork, truly makes this a unique opportunity.
