Horseback Riding Trails
Join Us For a Scenic Trail Ride!
Circle K Ranch offers group trail rides in early-Spring, Fall, and Winter. The trail lasts about an hour and takes participants on a scenic tour of YMCA Camp Kern’s expansive grounds. We will provide trail-safe horses and friendly, knowledgeable guides for each group.
We advise that you contact us at least two weeks in advance to book your ride, as our schedule fills up quickly, especially on weekends.
Please note that unless you book a "Private Experience", you may be joined by other participants for the trail ride.
Discounts available for Girl Scout Troops, see below.
