7 Day Ride • 6 Nights

Let our horses carry all your gear while you hike! This is a 7 day loop, staying in tent camps and one cabin camp along the way. With fresh quality dinners packed by our horses! Climb Brewer Ridge, go over Macelvenny Pass along the skyline to Ben Able Lake, then head through the Rock Creek Basin into Arrow Head basin and down to our Big Cabin along Dutch Creek, the trip ends at Whitetail Lake.

Hike it!

This is our annual horse assisted hiking trip. It is truly a one of a kind adventure designed for any hiking enthusiast. The horses carry your gear while you enjoy the mountains on foot. The hiking per day averages about 4 hours give or take. You are above tree line on the ridge so there is lots of easy hiking and amazing views! Meet at Whitetail lake and we drive from there to our trail head. At the trail head we will take your overnight gear, and you can hike on ahead with a guide and your day pack. We will pack the horses and meet you at our first camp to set up and get dinner cooking! After dinner relax around the fire, and crawl into your tent when you want to hit the hay. In the morning we will make a big breakfast for everyone, give everyone a bag lunch and then the hikers and guide will set out ahead again, and we will catch you at the next camp. This trend will continue for the whole trip. You hardly see us and the horses on the trip. You will get incredible views and experiences. Relax and fish Ben Able lake, take a swim if you are brave! See many mountain tops and take the time to crest the ridgelines to see what is on the other side! This adventure is hard to explain in full detail because it covers so much incredible ground and you will have so many amazing experiences. If you are a backcountry enthusiast and a passionate hiker, this is your trip! One of a kind!
