Horseback Riding

While visiting Canaan Valley, horseback riding should be on your list of “to-dos.”

  • Mountain Trail Rides Horseback Riding and More takes guests on guided tours along the countryside and into woodlands and scenic pastures. While riding, you might see white-tailed deer, red-tailed hawks, or even a black bear along the way. Vantage points near Bald Knob and at Dolly Sods are opportunities for riders to take in the picture-perfect views.

    Mountain Trail Rides also offers Mountain Adventure Rides, a tour that still takes you through scenic areas, but includes a picnic as well. Children can take pony rides and visit the petting zoo while the horses get a chance to rest.  An adventure cave, gemstone mining, tractor-pulled wagon rides, and a gift shop are just some of the other attractions available.

  • Double S Stables is located in the heart of Canaan Valley and there’s no better way to enjoy the rugged beauty than from the back of a horse!
