Trail Ride & Cowboy Cookout Dinner

Horseback Riding

Banff Trail Riders

A wonderful family friendly horseback trip that will make you feel like a real cowboy! Journey along the Bow River to take in the wildlife there, and then venture on to 3 Mile Cabin for a cowboy feast, plus western-themed games and fun before riding back visa Sulphur Mountain Trail for some spectacular views.

What you can expect

Connect with nature, embrace the wilderness and eat steak along the way!

First you’ll ride along the Bow River while watching for wildlife such as ground squirrels, porcupines and beavers scurrying around the marshes and meadows.

Midway through the ride, you’ll arrive at 3 Mile Cabin to enjoy genuine western hospitality and some tasty comfort food. But before digging in, work up an appetite with a few western-style games, like lassoing and horseshoes.
Afterwards, sit down to a BBQ feast of steak, home-made baked beans, salad and baked potatoes with the works. Once your hunger is satisfied, your return trip will include riding along Sulphur Mountain Trail and a climb up and around the Windy Knoll, where dazzling views of the sky-piercing mountains await.

This ride is also perfect for youngsters. Anyone joining your group can choose to take a relaxing wagon ride along the Bow River to 3 Mile Cabin and then re-join the group for an authentic cowboy dinner.
