Equestrian Trail Riding Mammoth Creek Loop at Sierra Meadows

Do you have Equestrian Experiences you'd like to share? Find out How!

  • This is a great introduction to the sagebrush steppes at the base of the Sherwins Range and an authentic western experience right at the edge of town. From the staging area at Sierra Meadows Ranch, ride east along the main trail downvalley along the Mammoth Creek drainage. The trails are soft and sandy, with good footing for your horses and a variety of side trails for access to the creek—or to loop around on your way back. A number of classic westerns have been filmed here. And with the wide-open views, the wildflowers along the creek, and the occasional glimpse of mule deer in the grass, it's easy to see why.
