Ride horses in Del Norte County!
Saddle up for a chance to discover the pristine backcountry of Del Norte County, a truly natural environment inaccessible by cars and the less hardy hikers. Watch the reflection of the clouds race over shimmering high-elevation lakes; take in sweeping panoramic vistas stretching to the horizon; meander through lush mountain meadows bursting with joyous spring blossoms. As you sit up high and ride through California’s tallest redwoods, you’ll know the true meaning of getting back to nature.
Due to their size and behavior, horses can easily damage the delicate environment around the trails, so it is important to take steps to minimize the impact you and your horse make on the trail environment. Always camp only in designated areas and keep your animals hobbled or tied to a hitching post when unattended. Don’t let your animals graze on wild vegetation; bring feed in pellet form or certified weed-free feed to prevent the spread of invasive species.
