The Highlands Horseback Trail Rides

Explore the vast mountainous terrain and make a new equine friend by horseback riding in northern Michigan! The one- and two-hour trail rides begin from The Highlands’ equestrian facilities and cover some of the resort’s 4,000+ acres. The wooded trails have been gently cut through natural vegetation and are exclusive to riders on horseback.

During the fall color season, riders can book a 1.5 hour scenic Fall Color Ride that climbs to The Highlands’ mountaintop. Experience all the beauty of fall in northern Michigan, while enjoying the breathtaking views and brilliant colors of the Pleasantview Valley and Little Traverse Bay area.

Pony rides are also available for younger riders.

Call or visit The Highlands at Harbor Springs for summer or winter details on horseback trail riding experiences and reservations.
