Trail Rides & Trips
Idaho outfitters offer trail rides by the hour or day. Trail rides are available
around resort areas near Coeur d'Alene, Sun Valley, McCall, Yellowstone, and the
Grand Tetons. Riders also explore the mountains and canyons around Bogus Basin near
Boise, the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, and the Snake River Birds of Prey
Area. Many guest ranches and lodges have wranglers to guide guests on custom rides
along "Wild and Scenic" rivers, into forests and meadows, and up to high mountain
Horses on these rides are well-trained. Wranglers are safety conscious and knowledgeable
about their areas. Riders hear stories and learn history and see geography while
enjoying some of the state's most beautiful views.
Llamas are gentle, sure-footed companions on day hikes or overnight camping trips
into Idaho's mountains. These South-American pack animals carry food and supplies
while guests enjoy the scenery. Llama trips and tours are offered near the central
Idaho resort areas of McCall and Sun Valley.
Cattle Drives and Round-ups
Stay with a rancher and work with the wranglers. It's a great way to ride horses
and see Idaho's cattle country.
