Image 13

Hidden Lake…$105 ( approximately 2 to 2.5 hours)

This is our shortest ride, ambling through the meadows and up the trail to Hidden Lake with a short rest stop to enjoy the lake and the scenery. Heading back down the Allen Camp trail to the corrals.

The following rides are by appointment only,

$350 minimum for the day.

Mud Lake Loop...$175 (approximately 4 hours).
The Mud Lake loop ride heads up the old wagon road from Plasse's Resort and out through the meadows to Mud Lake.  Take a 30 minute break and enjoy the scenery of the lake before our return ride via a trail that offers a look at the "old Kit Carson tree"; we go by the Allen Ranch; then back down the switchbacks into the Silver Lake Basin.

Pardoe Lake...$175 (approximately 5-6 hours with saddle time 3-4 hours).
A short "all-day" ride into the Mokelumne Wilderness.  With about a 2 hour ride to Pardoe Lake, we take the time to enjoy about 2 more hours of the area's beauty.  You are welcome to fish, go swimming, photograph or paint some of nature's best offerings.

Beebe Lake/Cole Creek Lakes...$175 (approximately 8-10 hours with 5-6 hours riding).
These lakes are deep into the Mokelumne Wilderness.  Experience a day in a pristine environment at one of these high mountain lakes.  Chances are you will have the entire lake to yourself, it is seldom that we run into other folks there.  The fishing can be great, the air is fresh and the vistas magnificent.
