Pack Trips  

Day 1:Meet at the ranch at 9:30am, grab a coffee & meet

your crew before loading the horses onto the trailer to

head "across the lake". It's roughly a 50 minute drive to

our trail head where we will saddle up, load our gear onto

the pack horses and head to camp. It's going to be roughly

a 4-5 hour ride into camp where we set up our tents, put the horses up, and enjoy a wonderful evening cooking over the fire, watching the sunset, going out on the boat, fishing or relaxing. 

Meals: Lunch, Dinner


Day 2:Today, you can choose to have a relaxing day by the waters edge with short riding loop, or we can hit the trails in the morning and ride up to 8 hours to check out some beautiful lakes or even the old mica mine. We will return to camp after our ride and enjoy another nice evening on the lake, and cook over the open fire.
