Memorable 3 generation trip including our 10 year old grandchild. The perfect introduction to living history of the pioneers who traveled the Oregon Trail. Mr Carter and his team did a great job of welcoming our family from our first inquiry forward. The trip is authentic and the food was hearty and tasty each day. Travelers can opt to ride in the covered wagons or on horseback.

We had a wonderful time on our horseback ride down the Oregon Trail. Throughout the trail information was given and we had the opportunity to ask questions. We return to a great dinner and dessert. My family also stayed in the tee-pee overnight, we’re used to camping so it was just fine for us. I will say the wind was crazy that night, we were never cold but the wind was loud. The breakfast the next morning was also wonderful. We would definitely recommend and go again.

We just got back from a exiting, and fun Wagon Train Ride through Historic Trails West. When I first contacted Morris, I could tell he was the real deal. He was so accomodating, and made our group of 8 adults feel like we really experienced traveling on the Oregon Trail. He and David took us on an amazing wagon train ride, and with all of his knowledge and great stories we could visualize life on the trail back then. After the ride was over, we had a delicious meal that Chef Dave cooked right in front off us, complete with dutch oven peach cobbler. This was an experience that none of us will forget! Thank you so much Morris, and both Daves. We might have to try the overnight trail rides next time :-) Debi

Morris met our group and we loaded the wagon for an incredible ride and stories that were so interesting about the old trails like the Oregon trail and how things were done way back when. Morris is very knowledgeable about our history. What a wonderful man. If you are ever in the area take a ride back in time. You will not be disappointed.

We had such high expectations for this experience but sadly it didn't live up to it. On Sep 10 we booked this experience to ride horses. We were the only ones there so the wagons didn't go out. I gave it a 3 because the experience has potential to be very good with the right person guiding. We never met Morris (the owner) and they had a 20 years old young man taking us on the trail. He was very nice but had no idea how to lead a group. The first thing was that he didn't explain to my wife how to get up on the horse even after she asked. I had to help her. Then he kept on giving excuses that he had only been on the job for a week and we didn't get hardly any explanations or stories about the Oregon Trail. I knew more about it than he did. That's really a huge negative because you go on the trail to experience what I was like for the pioneers over 100 years ago. We got nothing except "this was the trail" and that only when I asked. He stayed on his cellphone quite a bit. The second substandard part was the Dutch Oven Dinner. The potatoes and the berries cobbler were really good. The steak was a small, cheap steak. They had family there and that took away from the experience. There was no explanation on how the pioneers prepared their food, how they ate, what the utensils and pots that they used were like. By the way, the horses were very good. Morris' sister told some interesting stories about a reenactment of the trail but overall it was a very disappointing experience. But we felt like they didn't really cared much.
