About AZ High Mountain Trail Rides

We’re the best place to ride, offering trail rides in the beautiful ponderosa pines! May 1st through October 1st, we offer rides through the Coconino National Forest of Arizona’s high country, in the town of Mormon Lake, AZ, 30 miles southeast of Flagstaff. Of course, with great weather, we may open a little earlier or stay a little later.

Our trails and horses are good for beginner riders, families, and riders of all levels.

Our rides depart from the heart of Mormon Lake, AZ, and take you through the ponderosa pine trees of North America. With wildlife abundant in the area, you may see elk, deer, foxes, raccoons, bobcats, and possibly a coyote. Horseback riding in Mormon Lake is a unique experience for all ages. Horseback riding in the pine trees gives you a new look at the forest. Let’s saddle up and ride!

Our mission is to provide well-trained and well-cared-for animals along with professional wranglers for our customers. We feel when these things are combined, we can provide a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable ride for the whole family! We strive to make sure every rider has a fun horseback ride, so they can have a truly unique sense of the old dusty trail.

Come join us for a ride in the pines!
