Whether you're a seasoned horseman or have never straddled anything livelier than a rocking horse, on horseback is an excellent way to discover the wonders of Plumas County.
Take a guided trail ride for an hour or two, or an all-day trek through the Sierra Nevada Mountains with stops at pristine mountain lakes and breathtaking vistas. You can even do an overnight pack trip and camp out!
The stables and ranches in the area are happy to accommodate any level of rider, and boarding is also available for those who bring their mounts with them.
See the Plumas National Forest Service website for information on trails and campsites that are horse-accessible.
