Mt Princeton 2 Hour Trail Ride

Horseback Riding in the stunning Arkansas Valley

Just 30 minutes from our Granite Outpost, the 2-hour Mt. Princeton Stables horseback ride is the perfect way to spend a morning or afternoon near Buena Vista and Salida. The Arkansas Valley is lined with 15 14,000-foot peaks - the most in one concentration in Colorado - which makes for one of the most scenic locations for a Colorado horseback ride. You'll get views of Mt. Princeton, Mt. Yale, Ht. Harvard and Mt. Antero on this ride.

A horseback ride gives you that "real West" adventure you're seeking in the mountains of Colorado. 

This 2-hour ride is the perfect introduction to horseback riding for families, first-timers or exerienced riders and fits nicely into a day's itinerary when you're trying to make the most of your time in the area.  The ride follows a portion of Chalk Creek, crosses the creek and then follows part of the retired narrows gauge railroad that went to St. Elmo around the turn of the last century.
