My husband and I booked a 4-hr ride with dinner this month/Sept with Historic Trails West and had a wonderful time learning about the Oregon Trail, experiencing a true horse-drawn covered wagon ride following a portion of the actual Oregon Trail followed by a good meal cooked outdoors. The experience was outstanding and we would recommend anyone interested in our... More

We took the 4-hour covered wagon and horse riding trip. How interesting, fun and novel. I rode in the covered wagon most of the time and my husband rode Taz. Taz is a beautiful horse, very well trained and easy to ride. I am older and stiff and just wasn't as confident riding him as my husband, The scenery was... More

This is far from a typical tourist stop. We went out with the owner who has traveled on the entire trial and builds his own covered wagons.
