First thing...this is not a short ride for those who have leg, back or knee problems. You don't need to be an experienced rider but you will very likely be sore. But this was so much fun! Mark is very entertaining, with lots of great Alaskan cowboy stories. Be prepared for rain and cold though, when we were there in... More

Mark's place was easy to find and he had everything set up when we got to there. We drove about 10 miles away and he got the horses out and we headed down a 700 foot cliff road path, which was intense on such big horses. I was impressed with his level of knowledge of the area, his calm demeanor,... More

Ok this trail ride is great because it's truly a trail ride and not some pumped petting zoo walk around the park. And it's not some dude ranch out in Arizona. Mark was our guide and he took us down a cliff and into the Fox River area. If you enjoy horses and truly enjoy riding them then this is... More

So here's the thing. For a novice rider, or one that hasn't ridden in a long time, four hours will leave you sore for days afterward. For an experienced rider like me, the duration didn't bother me, but the lack of variety did. From a description I read somewhere, I thought it would be mostly mountain trails, trailering to a...

When I say "experience", I mean this is something that affects you in the most positive and beautiful way!! My family of 8 (ages 5 thru 50+, and some of which were visiting from Hawaii) went on a beautiful ride down a switchback and through the tidal flats at the mouth of katchemak bay! It was breathtaking! Mark is very... More

I have been on a few different trail rides from Hawaii to Arizona and this was by far my favorite. As other reviews have mentioned Mark is very knowledgeable and shares stories about the history of Homer on the ride. The trail ride starts at the top of a hill and drops down to the beach and it takes you... More

As all other reviewers have noted, Mark is professional, knowledgeable, and above all else very entertaining. My in-laws came to visit us in Fritz Creek and this was the highlight of their trip to Alaska. The views are spectacular and Mark is full of interesting information about the area that he loves to share. I learned quite a bit of... More

We are on a one year ride across America on our motorcycle. The ride with Mark was definitely one of the top three things we have done. The scenery is amazing, the day went so fast. We will definitely ride again if we ever make it back to Alaska!

We had a great day with Mark. He answered all our "Living in Alaska" questions and kept us entertained the whole day. The views CANNOT BE BEAT!!! If you are headed to the Homer area make sure you give Mark a call (in advance, he fills up pretty quickly for the summer)....also, you will not find a better activity for... More
