Overnight Guided Horse Trips into the backcountry wilderness

The most scenic spots in the California high country can only be accessed by foot. If your physical body is not up for carrying all the gear (weight) on your back (backpacking) and hiking (trekking) on foot, uphill for (many) miles, then an overnight horse camping trip (horse packing) may be an option to consider.

Get way out there – with guided professionals. Camp the real back country wilderness. No campground crowds, no RVs humming, no easy access! These experienced stock animals are well trained, familiar & dependable on the trails. Specific interests tours and custom destinations can make it worth your wild. Fishing alpine lakes, hot springs, wildflowers, high country camping (in style). Guides usually provide the camping tents, food and meal prep.
