Definitely worth it. We did the 1.5hr trail and had some beautiful views, they recommend the 2hr trail has even better views. Patty really went out of her way to make sure we had a good time. Thanks!

The guides were like family and they love their "job"... the horses are so beautiful and well trained. If you can make it up to the North Shore area, Happy Trails is a must do adventure.
