Day Rides At Golden Trout Wilderness Packtrains, our Day Rides start at 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. You will be accompanied by an experienced guide and will see some unforgettable scenery. We can take you to our favorite water slides and swimming holes. Take a trip to see the George Bush Sequoia Tree at Freeman Grove. If you are an Ansel Adams at heart, we can take you up to Jordan Peak and look out over the scenic Sierra Nevada. Rides are also available from our Lloyd Meadows facility from April to June. There are wonderful places in camp nearby in the Upper Kern River region. For safety reasons, we require children be at least six years old. We're sorry, but we can't have kids riding on the same horse with mom or dad.
Two Hour Ride - $55 per person
This is a good length of time for the "never-ever-been-on-a-horse" beginner, or if you haven't been riding for awhile. The First ride leaves the Station at 9:00 a.m. and will return at 11:00 a.m. The second ride leaves the Station at 1:00 p.m. and will return at 3:00 p.m. Your guide will take you around a beautiful mountain meadow and back to the Lodge before you get a chance to get tired.
Half Day Ride - $75 per person
This ride lasts about three hours. The ride will leave the station at 9:00 a.m. and will return about 1:00 p.m. Bring snacks and a drink or buy a sack lunch at the pack station. We'll be happy to stop for a quick lunch break and some picture taking. Our horses love to have their pictures taken!
Full Day Ride - $110 per person
This ride leaves the pack station at 9:00 a.m. and you'll be returning about 3:00 p.m. This is a perfect outing if you'd like to ride to the river and play around in the water or go fishing for awhile. We know some very secluded swimming holes and the coolest water slides around. Or, if you prefer to see The Giant Sequoias, we'll take you to the George Bush tree at Freeman Grove. You'll be accompanied by an experienced guide and your equipment (fishing pole, picnic lunch, bathing suit, etc.) will be packed in by a friendly mule.
