Aspen Wilderness Outfitters: GO AWOL!

Aspen Wilderness Outfitters, Ltd. specializes in good horses and personalized service, whether it be for families or custom group activities - private trail rides are available. AWOL offers a full range of horseback opportunities: from hourly trail rides, lunch and dinner rides, half day and all day wilderness adventures, as well as fully guided fishing and hunting expeditions. We are located near the resort towns of Aspen, Snowmass Village and Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Our trips center in the Maroon Bells/Snowmass and Hunter Frying Pan Wilderness areas, a setting unsurpassed with 14,000 foot peaks, mountain lakes, wildflowers, and breathtaking panoramas.

Be sure to bring along a camera - you'll have some spectacular photo opportunities!

One and Two Hour Trail Rides, Lunch Rides and Sunset Rides
SEE RATES below:

These rides start right from the Snowmass Village rodeo grounds, just minutes from Aspen. Jump on a horse for a scenic ride up the mountain. Rides start at 9:00 am and close at 5:00 pm. Although short in general, these rides wind along gentle trails on the mountain to offer great views as you meander through aspen groves, stands of evergreens and flower filled meadows. Great for families or groups that want to enjoy a pleasurable ride with no experience necessary. Come midday, and join us for lunch on the trail - cowboy style, or take a late afternoon / evening ride with us and watch the sun set.

Half and Full Day Wilderness Rides
SEE RATES below:

These rides are geared towards those that are looking for a more back country experience with tremendous scenery and perhaps some fishing as a bonus or addition. Half days are generally four hours and full days are generally six hours. Fishing gear is extra. We frequent Maroon Valley and the Hunter Creek Wilderness on our half day rides - don't worry about packing a lunch, we'll do that for you, cowboy style.
