Excellent experience for beginners. Josh and Silas explained the fundamentals and off we went. Mountainside and woods were spectacular.

We went on the scenic valley trail ride and it was nice. The guide was very good and was exceptionally good with my talkative 6.5 year old. It was a very serene trail through the woods and to a meadow for about an hour and...More
