You have the choice of going to either the Bodie Overlook or Blue Lake. Both rides are suitable for beginner riders and pass through the beautiful sagebrush flora of the eastern Sierra with stunning views.
Day in the Sierra
Saddle Up For A Picnic, Fishing, & Hiking
Ride through all of beautiful Virginia Lakes Canyon on this all-day horseback ride. Climb up to Burro Pass and beyond, to a grassy meadow with an overlook of Summit Lake and the peaks of northern Yosemite. There, you stop for lunch and can explore the mountainside on foot. On the return, you climb back over the pass to see stunning eastern facing views of the canyon we call home! This full-day Virginia Lakes escape includes your horseback ride, hiking, and lunch.
