Guided trail rides

Our guided trail rides are a wonderful way to explore and enjoy your national park. We offer 1, 2, and 3 hour rides, and an all-day ride. Trail rides are subject to weather and trail conditions. For safety reasons, all rides are tailored to accomodate the lowest riding ability level in any grouping of riders
Reservations are suggested, and must be canceled 3 hours before your scheduled ride departure time to avoid a 50% cancellation charge. Parties of six or more must cancel 24 hours in advance.
All prices subject to an annual review.

Our most popular ride, we will climb up to the Inverness ridge, about 1300 feet, passing a osprey nest. You will view the Olema valley as you pass through bay wood groves, ride among moss covered towering Douglas fir trees that reveal peeks of the pacific ocean to the west. The trail then drops down into the serenity of birch and alder forest along peaceful Olema creek.

This ride is a good choice for those riders who want to experience the wilderness quality of the park. We will travel through woods of oak, Douglas fir and huckleberry (yum!), see five types of ferns and other members of the plant and animal community of Point Reyes. As we climbover the ridge we will see a stunning panoramic view of the rugged pacific coast and Drakes Bay.

Wildcat Beach Ride, approx. 6 hours
$180.00 per person

Departs at 10:00AM

 The Ride of your dreams! Climb through the forest over the Inverness ridge where the Farallon Islands point out the way to Wildcat beach. Here we will break for lunch (bring your own ) before heading down one of the most beautiful, remote white sand beaches in California to spectacular Alamere Falls. This is an experience you will treasure for a lifetime.

Private Rides

Private rides are ideal for those who desire a more personal setting such as celebrating birthdays, anniversaries or honeymoons. They are preferred by more experienced riders, as we can better tailor the ride to your level of horsemanship. They are also utilized by those who desire to depart at a custom time rather than at one of our regular departures. Our personal guide will show you the way. A private ride makes a unique and special gift!
