McGee Canyon Wildflower Trail Rides

McGee Canyon Wildflower Trail Rides

McGee Canyon, located 10 miles from Mammoth Lakes, is known as one of the most colorful in the state. Also known for spectacular wildflower displays, the amazing array is best seen from the back of a trusty horse or mule.

While you can choose from 1 hour, 2 hour, 1/2 day or All Day excursions, most notable are the 2 hour or 1/2 day rides through wildflowers, colorful geological displays, water cascades and beaver dams.

Guides will share their knowledge of the area - including wildflowers, place names, local legends and history! Our livestock is well cared for, pleasant and safe. Mules, known for their unique personalities, surefootedness, hardiness and smooth travel are used exclusively in the Grand Canyon and many areas of Yosemite National Park. We carry on the tradition, using many mules as well as our ranch and farm raised horses. While the sights and sounds of McGee Canyon will leave you with unforgettable experiences, most guests comment that the time with their personal horse or mule is the memory of a lifetime.

Because of health issues, I would never have been able to see this area without them. I highly recommend McGee Creek Pack Station for families and others to enjoy the area.

Nahler wrote on April 18, 2010: It really is a beautiful place! If you check out the moraine at the entrance of the campground you can clearly see the McGee Creek Fault where there is large upward movement! Otherwise be careful of the fire ants!
