horses and freedom are synonymous
Horseback Riding at Trappers Lake Lodge
Imagine the days of trappers and pioneers while traversing the trails on the back of a horse. It’s one of the rare pleasures of true wilderness escape. Our experienced wranglers will guide you the Flat Tops Wilderness where the expansive views will take your breath away. Spend a few hours taking in the sights and then head back down the trail for lunch at the lodge, or make an entire day of it (lunch is provided for the full day trip.) True backcountry junkies can make it an overnight (or two or three). We will set up your campsite, complete with a four-man tent, cots and a heat stove. Just let us know when you would like us to come back and get you! Call us with your plan and we’ll give you a price quote. The cost is based on the number of riders and pack horses and requires a two-person minimum.
