About Banff Trail Riders
Take a minute to soak in your surroundings. Take several, in fact, since the view stretches for miles. Evergreen trees blanket the lowlands of Banff National Park, hugging the bases of mountains whose snow-dusted peaks scratch the itchy bellies of passing clouds. No one is around for miles—save for your horse, the guide leading you up the mountainside, and your fellow riders.
Moments like these have been Banff Trail Riders's bread, butter, and baked beans for more than 50 years. Their guides lead horseback trips deep into the backcountry of Banff National Park. The journeys can last anywhere from under an hour to days on end, as riders cross streams and climb the steep terrain of the Canadian Rockies. There are ample opportunities to pause along the way and watch for wildlife. Games of horseshoes help pass the time and give the horses a chance to walk around in just their socks.
One such trip with Banff Trail Riders is enough to transform anyone into a cowboy or cowgirl. The only things missing are boots, hats, and maybe a saddle. Luckily, these goods fill the racks and shelves of the onsite Trail Rider Store.
