Every day a different trail!

Alder Creek 25/50 - you'll feel like you're in the wilderness with several creek crossings, sweeping views, beautiful rock formations and canyons. All holds will be out of camp. see map and details

Day 2: Hart Creek / Birds of Prey 25/50 - ride two large loops; south of camp into the rugged Hart Creek drainage, and north of camp to the Birds of Prey area with soft trails and sand washes. One half-way hold in camp. see map and details

Day 3:
Snake River Run 30/60/80/100 - This will be a special out and back trail along the Oregon Trail to the Snake River. Ride below the canyon walls, by ancient petroglyphs and old homesteads. A day of beatiful scenery, river wildlife and great footing for the horses! see map and details
