Matt was our guide for this ride through Snow Canyon. He was very informative about the history and geology of the area and it was well worth the ride just for that and the beautiful country. The horses were very well trained and this would be a fine ride for a novice. For more experienced riders sit back and enjoy... More

Our ride on the Gila Trail in Snow Canyon State Park was beautiful and the time passed too quickly. Matthew, our wrangler/guide, is a native of the area and provided a good narration of history and culture. The horses were gentle and easy. This is a great way to experience Snow Canyon. My foot has been bothering me, so this... More

We went on a 2 hour trail ride and were so impressed with the guide, the horses, and the beautiful scenery. Our guide knew where to go and gave us meaningful commentary. The horses were responsive and sure footed. The scenery was awesome. I would recommend Snow Canyon Trail Rides to anyone!!!

Morning ride with Matt to the N end of Snow Canyon. Go early to beat the heat. Horses are gentle and its a really nice ride. Matt was great--very knowledgable about plants, animals and geology of the area. We hope to come back in cooler weather and do the lower canyon with them. This is an excellent value and really...

This is our 2nd ride with Snow Canyon Trail Rides. This time we enjoyed exchanging stories with our guide, Matthew on our 4 hour ride to the north rim where we dismounted and had a nice lunch while the horses rested. The horses are well-mannered, pleasant and easy to ride. Having had my own horses makes it more of a... More

Ben had some great horses for us to ride and even adjusted the time of the ride so that we could do it when we had time, since no one else had scheduled for that day. Ben knew a lot about history, plants and the geology of the area. It is a great way to see Snow Canyon State Park.

We only hiked the trails in the park. I would love to do a horse ride next visit. There are so many great hikes from beginner to more difficult. Most trails do not allow dogs even on leashes. A photographer would love it. So many gorgeous areas. Not a big place but well worth a stop.

We took our 8 and 10 year old girls on a one hour ride through the beautiful Snow Canyon and it was just an amazing time! Matthew, our guide, was easy going, informative and put our girls at ease - turning them into real "riders" in no time! The trail was gorgeous, the horses well cared for and mannered. I... More
