If you are looking for a summer trip of a lifetime, we offer a couple of differnet trips that provide just that. Imagine being horseback, riding on top of the world for 8 days along the Continental Divide. Or for the fisherman, spending 7 days visiting breath-taking high country lakes fishing, only accessible by horseback or foot, for native Colorado trout.
We may start this ride above Wolf Creek Pass and head west, or we may start near the mining town of Silverton and head east. Either way, it’s an adventure. At the trailhead, we’ll pack our gear, fit our stirrups, and hit the trail--riding the gorgeous Continental Divide for over 100 miles in eight days.
During the course of our excursion, we’ll camp in several carefully-selected locations. Every riding day will be spent at elevations at or above 11,000 ft, with the highest point well above 13,000 feet. Several nearby peaks are over 14,000 feet with many being just under that. Covering this much country, we’re bound to see wildlife and some of the world’s most spectacular scenery.
Each evening we’ll set camp. Then we’ll have a tasty dinner and sit around the fire, enjoying the stories and the stars. For sleeping, we provide pop up tents, cots and sleeping pads. Some folks do, however, opt to sleep under the stars. Each morning, you’ll awaken to a hearty and nourishing breakfast. Then we’ll pack it all up and head out on the next part of our adventure.
This adventure is limited to six guests, and we only do one trip a summer (usually the last week in July) so it does fill up quickly. Contact us for more information!
High Country Lakes Fishing Adventure Ride
This seven-day, fifty mile adventure will take you into the heart of the Weminuche Wilderness to some of the most beautiful high-country fishing lakes and streams in the Rockies. The horseback riding is spectacular, with a lot of time above 11,000 feet, surrounded by some of Colorado’s most beautiful scenery.
You will visit Williams Lake, Trout Lake, Hossick Lake, and also the Pine and La Osa rivers. Catch the native Colorado Cutthroat Trout, Browns, Rainbows. There will also be much site seeing along the way as well.
This is a progressive trip, so each evening you will set camp in pop-up tents, cots and sleeping pads. You will get the chance to spend a couple of nights at our La Osa base camp.
This trip is the first week of August every year.
