The Ranch’s excellent riding program, catering specifically to Ranch guests, features small, quality trail rides into the White Cloud or Sawtooth Mountains, originating from the Ranch. Rides are full day, 3 hour, or 1.5 hours, guided by Pioneer Outfitters’ knowledgeable and always entertaining wranglers.
Custom rides can be arranged. Some trail rides include fishing opportunities. Children six and over are welcome to join trail rides, and pony rides can be arranged for young aspiring cowboys and cowgirls. Horseback rides are a la carte rides and can easily be charged to your room.
Trails & Riding Adventures
Popular trails include: Chamberlain Lakes, a full day ride past Fourth of July and Washington Lakes, providing views of Castle Peak; Horton Peak, one of the highest places in the Stanley Basin accessible on horseback; and the Gold Creek and Salmon River trails, shorter rides with amazing views originating on the Ranch.
For those who would like an overnight hiking/camping adventure, Ranch outfitter Devan Jackson at Pioneer Outfitters can do a spot-pack for you, packing your gear into and out of your campsite, easing your load. You also can book a multi-day guided pack trip riding into one of Devan’s several base camps for “real camping,” with spectacular scenic views and hiking and fishing opportunities. Of course, you’ll enjoy your stay at the Ranch before and after these adventures!
