Pack Trips

We offer a wide variety of trips to fit your abilities and desires. The trips we offer range from 2 to 10 days. You can do a base camp trip and explore the region around there or do a progressive trip and travel to several new camp sites during your trip. Travel on horses up mountain valleys and across mountain passes, and let the beauty take your breath away. Then set camp next to some of the most pristine lakes and rivers. We ride an average of 4 to 5 hours a day and cover 10 to 15 miles per day.

Our camps are clean and comfortable, sleeping tents are made of waterproof canvas and offer sleeping pads. A solar shower is available and a latrine is set up at every campsite. Canvas flies and tarps will offer shelter from sun and the occasional rain shower. Sit around the campfire in camp chairs and enjoy the camaraderie of friends and family, telling jokes and stories of days gone by; maybe even sing along to an occasional cowboy song. Cooks will prepare meals over the fire and on a propane stove and are served buffet style. Enjoy entrees like steaks, pork tenderloin, chicken, burgers, spaghetti for dinner, as well as all the fixings; light appetizers and snacks are included as well. Wake up to a breakfast with old fashioned cowboy coffee, bacon, eggs, sausage, pancakes and more. Lunches are usually on-the-go (we are out on the trail exploring) and consist of sandwiches, chips, granola bars and candy bars.

Stationary Trips

On stationary trips, we travel to a base camp area and stay in that camp for the duration of our trip. We day ride, hike, fish and explore from there. This is a very relaxing trip. These trips are great for corporate getaways. Trips range from 2 to 10 days.
