My family of four went on a trail ride there yesterday. It was my 7 year old's first riding experience. It was a beautiful one hour ride. The guide was very soft spoken and experienced. The rates were reasonable. Love this place.

good service and staff was helpful. We took the 1 hr ride and saw a mother bear and 3 cubs about 30ft away. Horses never flenched at the bears. Was a typical single file ride, all walking, good for the novice.
