You don't have to be a cowboy to enjoy our Horseback Riding tours. Experience the Eldorado Canyon on
horseback and head back into time where life was easy and adventure was common.
This horseback ride offers views of the Colorado River, where you will explore gold and
silver mines dating back to the 19th century. Miners, Cowboys and Indians were the primary
residents of this lawless land, on this tour you will have the opportunity to visit some of
their original homes sites and experience a re-creation of an “Old West Mining Town”.
You'll ride along paths that were originally used for mule driven ore carts which
carried precious minerals to the river. Mountain terrain is surrounded by forests of cholla
cactus, with towering, multicolored rock formations as the backdrop for this incredibly scenic tour.
Step right into the pages of history, with a walking tour of the Techaticcup mine.
Venture deep into this rumored haunted gold mine and visit 3 different shafts, one of which
descends over 900 feet. Learn how the hardiest of men labored feverishly looking for GOLD!
Men chiseled their way through the mountainside inch by inch, with the most primitive of tools
and working only by candlelight.
Enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch at our Old West Town features foundations from one of the original
Mining Camps of the 1800’s.
No matter the season, this breathtaking canyon will amaze you. So, hit the trail
for a taste of cowboy life in the West... fresh air, good horses, and scenic trails.
