North Shore Backcountry Horseback Ride By:  Gunstock Ranch

Book now!

Take a scenic horseback ride through the foothills of the Ko'olau Mountain Range with the Gunstock Ranch.

Our scenic 1 hour or 1.5 hour is a fun ride for the whole family! Enjoy a leisurely ride through one of Oahu's hidden treasures, the Maelekahana Hawaiian countryside. On this scenic mountain tour, you and your horse will wind through shady trails and open grazing pastures. The highlight of this ride is the pastural views and our hidden cave that was used in the filming of Hawaii 5-0. 

Choose the 1.5 hour scenic tour and ride all the way up to our scenic lookout which provides a majestic view for miles of the Windward side of Oahu.

There are multiple sneak peeks of the ocean which makes great picture taking spots, so don't forget your camera!

We work hard to keep our rides small because we want you to feel like you have experienced a true Paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboy) horseback ride. On this ride, you are likely to see wild pigs, cattle, and other horses roaming the valleys, hills, and gulches.

The Scenic Ride is either a 60-minute or 90-minute guided ride and is a walking- only ride, no trotting or cantering will be allowed. A great ride for the whole family, suitable for all skill levels ages 7 and up. No pregnant riders will be allowed. Our weight limit for any rider is 240lbs.
