Hondoo Rivers and Trails
Hondoo Rivers & Trails specialize in trail rides with camping and Inn to Inn rides primarily in the Capitol Reef National Park region of southern Utah.
The trails used on all rides are mostly ungroomed and were created by wildlife, Indians, outlaws or herdsmen. All the areas used are selected for their scenic quality, pristine natural condition and remote location.
As a general rule, the rides explore higher altitudes of up to 11,500ft. during mid-summer and lower elevations (to 3,900ft.) earlier or later in the season. Life zones visited may range from Alpine to upper-Sonoran depending on the ride and the time of year.
Each ride takes you to a different base camp and you will ride into the wilderness from these camps, returning each evening.
Each camping ride is unique and seldom covers the same backcountry trail or uses the same camp site more than once or twice a season. These are base-camp rides are supplied by 4X4 vehicles.
The area that Hondo Trails explore are the Capitol Reef National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, San Rafael Swell Wilderness or Utah's High Plateaus.
The trail ride includes all taxes and land-use fees, all ground transportation from Torrey & return, your first night's motel lodging in Torrey, 3 nights at their deluxe basecamp deep in the backcountry, all meals from lunch on day two through to lunch on day six, including fresh produce, hot and iced drinks. Canvas tents for cooking, dining, showering and sleeping (single, double or family occupancy) with sleeping bag, cot and foam pad, camp chairs, coolers and other camp amenities.
Waterproof gear bags, water bottles, saddle bags and tack, seasoned mountain horses, guides/wranglers, cook, camp-jack and interpretative specialist.
As the ride progresses, the daily destinations move from the Capitol Reef National Park area into the Grandstaircase/Escalante Canyons National Monument. During warm weather or fall foliage, excursions to the lakes and alpine meadows of Fishlake or Dixie National Forest become part of the itinerary.
On the Inn-to-Inn ride, they select daily destinations from several dozen available. Lodging locations change from Torrey, Utah to Boulder, Utah as the ride meanders down the Waterpocket Fold towards Lake Powell.
Rides are open to all horse enthusiasts and nature lovers. Although heart and athleticism are often more important than experience when judging horses or riders, riders should be in control at walk, trot and short canter.
In addition to the two types of trail ride, Hondoo also offer full and half days trail rides. There also full day vehicle tours to many of the destinations used by the trail rides, Capitol Reef, Escalante Canyons, San Rafael Swell and Canyonland National Park.
