What a wonderful way to fill a hot summer day. We took the 10 am two hour ride with our grandson, who is 10. He was a bit nervous, but Luke and Jeff were great with him and he loved the ride. Scenery was breathtaking...More

Though they recommend this ride for more experienced riders than myself, I went anyway because my wife wanted to take this trail ride. The views open up after a few mile ride through the trees, it's really stunning. Waterfalls, huge rock cliffs and towering mountains....More
