This review is long overdue. My teen daughter and I were looking for a last-minute activity before our "boys" got into town, something close to Boone. I called the night before Columbus Day. They set up a ride just for us the next morning, even though there wasn't one scheduled. Our guide took us on an extra long ride, and,... More

Our family of 8 enjoyed this place. The owners were down to earth and very patient. We were all beginners so we required a lot of assistance. The guides were very helpful and provided a bit of comedy along the trail. The entire riding tour lasted about 2 hours and was very interesting. Make sure to wear long jeans and... More

The owner and his wife are extremely nice and funny. The trail ride itself was a good length but had no views and on other trips I've been on guides have given the history of the area, not this one. My horse was smart enough to walk over a small tree and it got spooked and knocked me off. Very... More

My ten year old grandson along with his friend and I recently visited Dutch Creek Trails for the first time (we were actually there about five years ago but he was not able to ride because he was not six years old yet). We researched the reviews for horseback riding in the Boone/Valle Cruces area and found that Dutch Creek... More

We have been coming to Valle Crucis / Banner Elk area for years and have been to Dutch Creek Trails several times. Every time we consistently have been impressed with how kind and friendly the staff are, and they are very accommodating. They were very good with my niece who had never ridden before.

My two girls (7 and 9) and I had a great time at Dutch Creek Trails. Cowboy Keith is super nice, and the guides were so friendly. The horses are well maintained, and the trail has some nice views. I would definitely recommend this place.

Not my cup of tea; pretty scenery, but it wasn't overly exciting. I'd skip this and just go shopping and eating somewhere nearby.

My husband and I went horseback riding with Dutch Creek Trails and had a great time! I have gone on other horseback tours in the past and this one takes the cake. The ride was beautiful, the horses were extremely well-kept and had great temperaments, and the staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. I highly recommend them if you are... More

I originally reviewed Dutch Creek back in 2009 and mentioned the location as being just down the road from Mast General Store in Valle Crucis. Since then they have moved to a new location in Vilas. We booked another ride with them last year and found it just as enjoyable. If anyone were to go back and read my original... More

We have visited one other Trail Riding operation in the mountains not far from Dutch Creek Trails to compare this to and Dutch Creek Trails was another great experience! Prices were similar $50-$70/person for approximately an hour to hour and a half trail ride. We brought our 9yr old daughter. The experience is fun from the minute you arrive at... More
