It’s definitely getting to be that time of year when Trout Lake weather is looking great and Spring is definitely in the air. Everyone is welcome to saddle up andjoin us to ride the glorious trails of the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest and surrounding timberlands in the annual Mt. Adams Endurance Ride.
Saddle up to ride the glorious trails of the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest and the surrounding timberlands. Ride through the forests above Trout Lake Valley in the shadow of a snowcapped 12.276-foot volcano on excellent trails and old forest service roads. Good footing, beautiful loops, and views to knock you out of your saddle.
Anyone is welcome to participate in the Mt. Adams Endurance Ride. We have events for all levels of trail riders, from 12-to-25 mile trail rides for beginning endurance riders to 50-75-100 mile divisions for the more experienced competitors. Riders can also opt to compete in our 12-or-25 mile Mt. Adams Ride and Tie division where one horse and two rider/runners make a Ride & Tie team. All rides include moderate climbs and rocks, so hoof protection is strongly recommended.
The ride camp is located in a large grass meadow near the Mt. Adams Horse Camp. Weather can be very chilly at night, so come prepared. No open campfires are allowed, but ride-management approved, enclosed fires are allowed. There will also be a communal campfire near the vetting area. Check out the Endurance Ride flyer and visit the Mt. Adams Endurance Ride Facebook Page or the Endurance Ride website for more information.
