One-Day LaSal Mountain Trail Ride
This might be our most dramatic trail ride ever! The ride includes a scenic shuttle trip though Castle Valley, past the infamous Castle Rock, to our quaint creek side mountain camp at the base of the LaSal Mountains.
There are a multitude of trails to choose from - winding along the creek, up the canyon, and over LaSal’s ridges with stunning views in every direction.
We might cross canyon to canyon, or visit an old ghost town, but we always have an amazing time. No matter where the trail takes us, you can count on a full afternoon of adventure. You’ll return to Red Cliffs Lodge by suppertime, ready to chow down after a day in the saddle.
Riders are welcome to help our wranglers unsaddle and groom the horses. There’s plenty of time to end the day with pictures and chat with the cowboys about life ranching at Red Cliffs and the history of the west.
