We're the "Best Place to Find Yourself on Horseback" according to Hawaii Magazine's 2008 "Best of Hawaii" - and they should know! Ride our beautiful horses through lush, exotic valleys, ironwood forests, and pineapple fields, while enjoying spectacular panoramic views of the outer islands! Nestled in the midst of unspoiled mountains, rain forests and farmland, Ironwood Ranch sits on acres of private land inaccessible to most, but ready and waiting for you to explore!

We selected this one instead of Lahaina because we read on tripadvisor that they take better care of their horses. This is definitely the case. Beautiful animals. Their website is out of date. They do not have shuttle going from Kaanapali. Taxi is $25 plus tip each way. The ride was ok. Nothing to write home about. Probably won't do... More

My return visit to Ironwood Ranch was just as wonderful as the first time. A glorious place so close to the beaches of Kaanapali and Kapalua - yet feels like another world. The horses are beautiful and responsive and the guides are warm and attentive. One more activity that makes Maui my favourite destination!

This is probably the most ominous place aside from Hana that you can find on the westside. Nestled in the hills above Napili and Kapalua, surrounded by lush tall green fields of trees, bamboo, sugar cane and other tropical foliage, is Iron Woods Ranch. Totally out of the way cool place to take a ride on a horse high above... More

We had a nice 90 min ride with great horses and a nice staff. The jungle ride experience was very authentic and exciting. The horses were friendly and well behaved.

My dater requested horse back riding for her birthday. The ranch is beautiful and our tour guide was a weath of island knowledge. Again, book it yourself! It's much cheaper!

I was driving by Ironwood Ranch and decided to drive to the entrance and see if they had an opening for a single rider that day. I had other Trip Advisor ratings and heard that the woman Gina was not pleasant. She didn't disappoint. I arrived at a locked front gate. After days of clouds and rain, the sun was... More

The horses have cute names. The people working a there are lovely and happy. The horses are all taken care of and are happy as... More

After many trips to Maui my wife and I finally scheduled a horseback ride. We chose the Ironwood Ranch and had a wonderful experience. Gina, our guide was knowledgeable not only advising us about how to ride, but she was a fountain of knowledge about the flora and fauna and history of the area in which we rode. She gave... More
