We booked their "Sunset Dinner Ride" which is a 2 hr ride and a full steak dinner. The price was so reasonable that we wondered could it be this good... More

Horseback riding at Elk Point is always a highlight of our trip. The horses are always so well taken care of, and are very gentle and easy to ride. Lark and JR take extra care to hire the best horse wranglers and guides.

Set up a two hour ride for my 11 year-old weeks ago, not realizing that when I got to nearby cabins where we were staying I was advised not to reveal where we were staying as there was quite a feud over road access issues. Had my first change in plans for my son's ride about a week before the... More

We rode two days. On the first day we took the short 1 hour ride, and the second day a 2 hour ride. It was a great family experience. The guides were experienced, friendly and professional. Even though the trails were getting slick from the rain, the horses were sure footed and we had a great experience. The horses always... More

Took grandkids for a pony ride--staff was helpful and made sure that we had a safe and good time. Bandit (the horse) was patient.

My daughter and I love to go horseback riding at Elk Point Lodge. The trails go through the forest and by Vallecito Lake and are peaceful and absolutely gorgeous. The wranglers at Elk Point (Pete and Beth) are wonderful and we enjoy spending time with them. Horseback riding at Elk Point Lodge is always the highlight of our summer vacation... More

It was a nice 30-45 min ride with friendly guides. The horses were on auto-pilot so you don't have to know how to ride. Some of the trails were steep but no where close to being unsafe or adventure filled.

We had the best time horseback riding at Elk Point Lodge. The horses were so sweet and were so gentle with our young children. I highly recommend coming here for horseback riding and cabin rentals also.

We had a group of six (3 moms, 3 kids 11 years old) who enjoyed a beautiful and relaxing morning horseback trip up the mountain and alongside the lake. The horses were well groomed and behaved. The trail bosses were attentive and friendly. And the mule deer were cooperative, standing still for photo ops along the trail!. Afterwards the husbands... More
