One & Two Hour Trail Rides
These rides start right from the Hunter Creek Trialhead, just minutes from Aspen. Jump on a horse for a scenic ride up the mountain. Rides start at 9:00 am and close at 5:00 pm. Although short in general, these rides wind along gentle trails on the mountain to offer great views as you meander through aspen groves, stands of evergreens and flower filled meadows. Great for families or groups that want to enjoy a pleasurable ride with no experience necessary. Come midday, and join us for lunch on the trail - cowboy style, or take a late afternoon / evening ride with us and watch the sun set.
These rides are geared towards those that are looking for a more back country experience with tremendous scenery and perhaps some fishing as a bonus or addition. Half days are generally four hours and full days are generally six hours. Fishing gear is extra. We frequent Maroon Valley and the Hunter Creek Wilderness on our half day rides - don't worry about packing a lunch, we'll do that for you, cowboy style.
