Bandit Outfitters’ team of knowledgeable guides leads horse-topped guests through rugged desert wilderness on 90-minute tours during the invigorating daylight hours or the hazy transition of sunset. Riders board their gentle, patient steeds and meander through the National Mail stagecoach route past towering saguaro cactus as they enact accurate depictions of Old West sharpshooters in tableau vivant.
Sunset tours commence as molten-gold and fiery-amber hues replace the expansive blue sky, causing buckaroos to stare agape as the rugged mountain ridges fade from purple to a jet-black silhouette. After trotting through an ancient Hohokam bedrock mortar site, saddle sitters and their equine companions return to the historical cattle ranch, bonded and ready to exchange wedding vows.
Situated within Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Bandit Outfitters surrounds guests with 2,500 acres of painted desert scenery, groves of mesquite, and Old West ambiance. The outfit's guides lead intrepid visitors out into the rustic expanse, drawing them along through the foothills of the Rincon Mountains on top of lively quarter horses or inside a horse-drawn covered wagon. Guides lead both daytime excursions and sunset jaunts, which can include such cowboy-approved additions as live music or an Old West cookout complete with steaks cooked to order on a real mesquite grill.
