Traveling into Sun River valley area, these trips climb to the famous Chinese Wall, a majestic and rugged 12 mile section of the Continental Divide. With camps along the banks of the Sun River and at the base of the Divide, we'll explore the splendor of this spectacular rock formation. We'll also explore the meadow strewn country by horseback on layover days. Fishing, hiking and riding opportunities abound.
* Chinese Wall trips are for intermediate to advanced riders in average to good physical condition.*
Guests arrive at the Ranch is in the late afternoon on arrival day, which is the day before the trip departs for the backcounty. We provide dinner and lodging at the Ranch, and then head out on the trail early the next morning. Plan to pack an overnight bag for your ranch nights separate from your trail gear. We'll arrive back to the Ranch mid afternoon on the final trail day so it's also nice to keep fresh clothes for that night, and the shower feels so good! Dinner and lodging are included; departure is after breakfast the following morning.
We reserve the right to change itinerary for reasons beyond our control such as forest fires, weather, rider ability, unforseen circumstances. Due to the nature of horseback riding in the wilderness, participants MUST be in good physical condition. Trips are not recommended if many health, physical issues, special diets. While we carry a satellite phone for emergencies, it is very difficult to bring someone out from a trip to seek medical attention. The emergency helicopter is costly and is for emergencies only.
