    Default Bob Marshall Shuttle

    Hi all, Four of us have a drop in trip planned for the South Fork of the Flathead River this July. We are flying into Montana from out of state. I know there are companies that will shuttle your vehicle around for you. But it doesn't make sense to rent a vehicle for 8 days just to have it sit unattended. Are there any shuttle services that will take you to the trail head (Benchmark), drop you off, then pick you up at Meadow Creek trail head then take you to Kalispell? I appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thanks.

    In 2018 I spent a week in the Bob with an horseback outfitter. Best decision we made was to stay at Standing Stones B&B on our first and last night in MT. Not only were the accommodations and food and people great, but for an additional charge, they:
    - picked up my friend and me at MSO airport
    - took us to town to get our local flies and bear spray
    - took us to the B&B
    - took us to the trailhead the next morning and packed lunches for the long ride, and introduced us to the outfitter
    - coordinated with the outfitter to meet us as the trailhead one week later as we returned, and brought us back to the B&B
    - took us back to MSO airport the next day.

    Standing Stones had no formal business relationship with the outfitter - -they just know everybody. Try calling them and see if they can be of help. Even if you aren't in their service area, they may know someone who can help.

    A rental car divided by 4 shouldn't be too bad. Often you can fish multiple blue ribbon rivers in the same day. The car gives you flexibility to explore and return to your favorite spots. Even hitting multiple access points on the same river can be helpful with a car never mind the post-fishing ice cream, beer, dinner run.

    Hi Hollisd, we are doing the 4 miles from the confluence to Mid Creek, then hiking out and driving back to Kalispell to fly home the next day. We only need to get to the trailhead and then to Kalispell. The car would literally be sitting there not used for 8 days.

    We used Four Rivers Shuttle (Tommy): 406 370-5845

    We even forgot to leave our money in the agreed upon hiding place and Tommy still shuttled our truck for us and we simply paid him when we got off the river.
