The trail ride at sunset costs $10 more for the hour than a normal ride. Can't see what warrants the increase unless they just want to discourage people from riding at that time. We were with a family that had a small child so our ride was quite tame. We ended up at the wrong end and had to deal with lots of dust. Cody seemed nice but we couldn't hear anything he said since we were at the back. Wear a jacket. It gets cold as the sun goes down.

Cave Creek Trail Rides was a sensational choice for "Girls' Day." Perfect weather, awesome views. Mat and Taylor were real pros - picking the perfect horse for each of us. Mat was a terrific guide, friendly and knowledgeable. I've lived in Phoenix for 30 years and this was the best trail ride experience I've had.

They let me ride the perfect horse for the first time rider. I did the one hour tour and it was perfect. The guide was great and the tour was beautiful. I would definitely go again.

Cave Creek Trail Rides is a great place to go when you visit AZ. We went on the 2hrs tour, and we had a great time. The guide Ed was a well informed guy who knew what he was doing. He did a great time with the tour, and if I were to do it again, I would ask for ED to by the guide, once more.
Over all great place!

Surprised my husband with breakfast, some mimosas and a trail ride for his birthday this year and i must say that we had an awesome time. Our guide Steven was great and knew all things desert. Beautiful scenic views of the Sonoran Mountains, Desert Hills, Downtown Phoenix and Cave Creek, just breath taking at 2500 ft! The tour was an hour and a half and i thought that it was more than sufficient time for us as we are not frequent horse riders. If you are not a horse or narrow mountain trail comfort person then this is not for you! On the other hand i'm sure that they offer kid friendly trails for those who still want to have a go at it. The birthday boy had a great time! Will be back when we have some friends come visit.
