My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our horse back adventure not only because of the stunning scenery, but the guide we had was so informative about the land, wildlife and horses. We learnt so much while traveling 2 hours horseback winding up and down through cactuses, streams, and overlooking Saguaro Lake. Not only that, this small family owned business is... More

Being Arizona residents and horse owners, this is the place we take guests ... whether they live in town ... or out of town! The owners, Gerald and Loretta, will match you up with the perfect horse for your riding abilities. No matter what time of year you go, the scenery is spectacular. As a bonus, seeing the fall colors... More

We enjoyed a 2 hr trail ride on very gentle horses. Our guide, Todd, took us across the Salt River, up into the hillside to amazing views of Lake Saguaro, the valley with the winding river and views of the bluffs and mountains. The east side of Phoenix is much greener than the west side where we had ridden earlier... More

We looked at a number of riding places and think this was the best choice. The trip to the ranch was easy, as you drive in you see why it's unique from other trail rides in the area! The trail is in the Tonto Natl forest, you go through river beds, up and down some steep but not scary trails,... More

While vacationing in Mesa, AZ, a friend suggested we take a ride and brought us to Saguaro Lake Ranch. The people there were warm and friendly and after a quick check-in, we were in the trail. Our guide, Todd, was excellent, and seemed a real expert on the desert flora and fauna. We opted for a challenging trail and it... More

This was a great thing to do with my family. Our leader was very knowledgable and we had the first morning ride. Most of us had never been on a horse before and the ride was pretty easy for us. If you are an expert rider, I would suggest you ask if there is a more challenging ride but the... More

We went for an early morning trail ride at Saguaro Lake Ranch. The staff was extremely friendly and you could tell that the horses were well taken care of. We started our ride at 9am, which was the perfect time because it was still nice and cool out. We opted for the 1 1/2 hour ride through the desert, but... More

This is one of our favorite ways to celebrate birthdays with friends. The sit on top kayaks are easy for beginners and very stable. The short introduction on how to use them is great too. The first 30 minutes on the river provides some amazing scenery of the towering cliffs along the water and is very peaceful. After that if... More

My husband I went for an adventure to celebrate his birthday. Our ages matter, I suppose, in case you are one of those people who think you couldn't possibly go kayaking: he's 51, I'm 59. I don't even know where to begin talking about this amazing place, so I'll just start at the beginning. The Ranch itself was built as... More
