Embark on an unforgettable adventure to witness the majesty of Oregon’s oldest tree, estimated to be between 2,000 and 3,000 years old! This ancient giant has weathered the wild, rugged mountains of Eastern Oregon for millennia, and now it’s your turn to experience its timeless beauty.

The trip includes all meals, cook shelter and sleeping tents. On the first day we will meet at the trail head at 8 am for a 4- hour hike or ride along a beautiful river to the camp site. Once we set the camp up, we will explore local wildlife and plants as well as discuss the geology of the area. Next morning we will spend all day hiking and exploring our way across mountain terrain, snow fields and creeks to the tree location. The third day will be spent riding or hiking to mountain passes and as another day of exploring. And on the final fouth day we will ride back to the trailhead, arriving at about 1 pm.

HOW TO PACK: 

All gear is packed in on mules or horses and we appreciate it if you make an effort to pack light. Suggested weight allowed for each camper is 27 kg. This helps us plan how many pack animals to bring for each trip. If you are bringing more than 27 kg per person we will have to bring extra pack animals and there may be an additional charge.

We limit loads for our pack animals to 54 kg or 27 kg/side. If you have a lot of gear, we suggest you consider packing your loose items in Rubbermaid 14 or 18 gallon totes. Totes are weatherproof, flexible enough to tie on a pack animal easily and are good in your camp to use for tables and to set things on.

Soft items should be in duffle bags. 

You might consider a small backpack for lunch and water. We also suggest you tie an extra coat and rain gear on the back of your saddle.

Plan to meet us at the Two Pan trailhead at 10 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made. The Base Camp is approximately a 3 ½ hour ride from the trail head.

There is a spring near the camp but you may consider bringing a filtering device.

    about tour
    I had a fabulous time. I loved the horses…how happy and well treated they are, Jordan is a great guide, the accommodations were comfy, scenery spectacular of course. I hope to come again next year. I’ll get back in touch with you about possibilities of a trip. I would do my own food this time, try to get together a small group. Meanwhile, thanks a bunch. You’re all doing a grrrreat job.
