You'll sit high in the saddle of one of the kind-natured horses from Kayren Hinkle's stock. Riding through the woods, you'll hear the voice of your Trail Guide ring out with his, or her, knowledge of the history of the area, often quick to point out protected and endangered plants, their medicinal properties, and folklore.
The gem mine will peak your interest in gemology. Children delight in finding numerous semi-precious gemstones and can take them home in a special velvet pouch with a card explaining the different types of stones and a keepsake necklace. Everyone is guaranteed to find a treasure.
Gift & Snack Shack
Shy about horseback riding, feel free to relax in our sitting room. While you wait, enjoy a snack and a bottle of water. Don't forget to commemorate your trip with a souvenir from our Gift Shack. We offer gifts, large and small, to remind you of your historical and informative mountain tour.
