Horseback Trail Rides

Hit the Trail

Guests rave about the trail rides at Lazy R Ranch — for good reason! We think horseback riding is the best way to see this beautiful, rugged countryside. It’s perfect for people who love to really experience vacation in a new way — free, exhilarating, and among friends.

We typically begin our rides at the ranch headquarters in Drybuck Valley, just an hour and 15 minutes away from Boise, ID. Hop in the saddle, and don’t worry — we’ll be here to guide you if it’s your first time on a horse or if you’re rusty.

From the ranch, we’ll meander through the scenic valley before climbing Drybuck Mountain to a location known as the Eagle’s Nest. You’ll soon discover that it’s an aptly named spot: From this perch, you can see all the way up the South Fork of the Payette to the legendary Sawtooth Mountains.

It’s a unique Boise vacation experience that will help you see the world the way generations before you did. Our trail rides are in high demand and can be made by reservation only. Discounts available for large groups or if booked in conjunction with Lazy R’s facilities.
