Do you think the 1 hr trail ride at Canyon or Roosevelt?

Do you think the 1 hr trail ride at Canyon or Roosevelt is better? (More scenic? Better Run?) We are doing a longer ride elsewhere so this will be a shorter ride. We'll have a horse loving 8.5 year old with riding experience (who is over 48") and then parents and an older sibling.

They are both nose-to-tail. From my daughter (who worked in YNP) "Canyon is more closed in. Trees around you, etc. No views of the canyon. Rosie 1 hr is out in the meadow so no shade/trees. I'd do canyon for the 1 hr. Rosie for the 2 hr."

I'd go with Roosevelt for the better scenery.

Well, there you go! I will say daughter didn't ride at Canyon when she worked in there at the desk in lodging. Hope it helps, lol.

The Tetons will provide spectacular views. I'd go there.

The OP has a longer ride elsewhere, perhaps already in the Tetons?

Yes! The longer ride is in Tetons- youngest daughter is a major horse lover so I promised another ride in Yellowstone

If you are doing that, I would not do a nose to tail trip in Yellowstone.
