Dutch Creek Trails, Valle Crucis

4.6
#91 of 230 in Outdoors in North Carolina Mountains
Beautiful trails along the mountains of North Carolina. Come enjoy a tractor rider delivering you to your horse, then off to the trails. Trails include a hour and half trail ride! Then come relax in our farm store and enjoy poetry from Keith Ward/ owner and cowboy poet. Also, stories and horsemanship from Tim Vines. Wonderful trails looking out over the mountains with a view of grandfather, great horses, and fantastic trail guides and you'll bound to have a YEE HAW good time!!!!!!!

Trail rides are $ 50 a piece and we DO NOT take children under the age of 6 up the trail. But no worries there is plenty for them to do around the farm!

  • My wife and I left the house this morning with no plans other than get away for the weekend. We came across Dutch Creek Trails doing a simple Google search driving down the highway and a couple hours later my wife and I were riding horses on one of the most scenic trails we've seen. Ally, our tour guide was a Rock Star. She's friendly and easygoing making our experience one that won't be forgotten. A big shout out to Bo, the big friendly giant that carried me around the mountainside and Chiquita, the little lady my wife saddled up on. Awesome horses!
  • I couldn’t of had a better time with the great people and horses and am already looking forward to coming back already thank you guys and keep up the good work
  • What a great find! Not your average trail ride and mountain views were amazing. We loved it. The cute house you check in at, greeted by Keith and dog Bo, and the tractor ride to the horses. The trail can be a little steap and rocky. Ally the guide did say they have other trails more suited for children. I rode a smart sure footed horse named Chiquita. She always took to dryer path on the muddy areas. My husband rode a big boy named Bo who dredged his way threw, always staying close to the lead horse.
  • Awesome!!!!! Fun for the whole family. We visit the same area every year and have visited Dutch Creek Trails for the past 3 or 4 years. People are wonderful and horses are well taken care of and easy going. Cant wait till next time.
  • With great people, great horses, and rustic back country trails, there isn't anything here to dislike. It's a great ride and well worth the price. There's a beautiful overlook along the way where the ride stops for a photo op. Seems like a great place for beginners and experienced riders alike. We'll definitely ride here again.
