The Capitol Peak (4,307m) is one of the most spectacular mountains in the Colorado Rockies. And the Capitol Valley is equally impressive, as it not only provides great views of the mountain, but also of the mesmerizing natural landscape surrounding it. From meadows and rivers to forests and wildlife, there is so much to see. Also, because the mountain and valley are very close to Aspen, getting access to the area is quite easy. Finally, on this half-day trip, you will get to explore the valley and mountain, not on foot, but on horseback!
Along with the incredible Capitol Peak, during this trip, you will get to also see and admire the Maroon Bells and Snowmass mountain as well.
There is something truly unique and special about horseback riding, especially through a beautiful natural area. The peace of the scenery with the soothing sound of the calm horse trotting on the path can calm the tensest of nerves. So, if tranquility in nature is what you’re looking for, this trip will definitely please you.
Very easy, no experience is needed to enjoy this trip. There are also helmets available for the trip as well, and anybody younger than 16 years of age is required to wear one.
Whether you are an avid horseback rider, or have never done it before, this half-day journey around the Capitol peak and valley will take your breath away. To enjoy it for yourself, just send us a request.

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
