“Beautiful scenery, knowledgeable guide”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Our ride on the Gila Trail in Snow Canyon State Park was beautiful and the time passed too quickly. Matthew, our wrangler/guide, is a native of the area and provided a good narration of history and culture. The horses were gentle and easy. This is a great way to experience Snow Canyon. My foot has been bothering me, so this was easier than a hike for me.

“Great horses and beautiful country”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We went on a 2 hour trail ride and were so impressed with the guide, the horses, and the beautiful scenery. Our guide knew where to go and gave us meaningful commentary. The horses were responsive and sure footed. The scenery was awesome. I would recommend Snow Canyon Trail Rides to anyone!!!

“Fun, Interesting and great scenery!”
Reviewed 14 June 2013 via mobile

Morning ride with Matt to the N end of Snow Canyon. Go early to beat the heat. Horses are gentle and its a really nice ride. Matt was great--very knowledgable about plants, animals and geology of the area. We hope to come back in cooler weather and do the lower canyon with them. This is an excellent value and really professional outfit!

“Go for the 4 hour ride to the North Rim with lunch!”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

This is our 2nd ride with Snow Canyon Trail Rides. This time we enjoyed exchanging stories with our guide, Matthew on our 4 hour ride to the north rim where we dismounted and had a nice lunch while the horses rested. The horses are well-mannered, pleasant and easy to ride. Having had my own horses makes it more of a pleasure to ride another nice one. Matthew was knowledgable about the area, the history behind Snow Canyon as well as plants and trees in the area. If you can, spring for the 4 hour ride - it includes a break with lunch!!

“Great Time”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

Ben had some great horses for us to ride and even adjusted the time of the ride so that we could do it when we had time, since no one else had scheduled for that day. Ben knew a lot about history, plants and the geology of the area. It is a great way to see Snow Canyon State Park.
