A nice change of pace if you are in the Truckee/Tahoe City area and are looking for something to do. I'm not a big hiker, but I do enjoy nice scenery. Not having to walk and still getting to enjoy nature is a bonus in my book. Our family of four took the one hour ride, but I think we could have handled two. The ride is very slow and the horses are used to the trail. Our guide, Matt, was great at talking with the kids on all kinds of subjects, not just horses. If you are a big rider, this quiet pace may not be enough for you. I'd suggest the private rides they have available, but for the average person it is just right. We rode after a rain storm so there was no dust, but I suggest a bandana on a clear day. Very reasonably priced as well (including tip). Also note this is check or cash only activity.
