Guided Trail Rides

Saddle up!

Our guided horseback rides depart from Blue Bell Lodge and are one of the most peaceful, scenic ways to experience the park's trails. All ages are welcome, with pony rides at the stables available for the youngsters. However, to go out on the trail, children must ride alone and meet minimum safety requirements. Open through the end of September.


Reservations are required. Call the Blue Bell Lodge Stables at 605-255-4700 to reserve your spot (stables open in May).

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled trail ride to complete the required paperwork. Weight limits apply.
