At the end of the Kenai Peninsula lies the stunning town of Homer, a sparkling seaside spot with excellent Alaskan beaches and incredible seafood on the shores of the Kachemak Bay.
In this enchanting section of the Alaskan countryside you will find the Trail's End Horse Adventures. Take a horseback ride to explore the beach and feel the wind in your hair.
Cowboy Mark Marette has been offering rides on the Homer Spit since 1986, allowing Alaskans and visitors alike to experience the wonder of this Bay from the back of a horse.
Trail rides meet at 8:15 AM at the ranch, a 20 minutes drive outside of Homer. Riders must wear sturdy shoes and be prepared for breezy, rainy weather.
The four hour tours happen daily as long as the minimum two people sign up. Everyone gets specific instruction on riding and gears up in the morning.
The tour led by Cowboy Mark himself heads out to explore the countryside on a leisurely, exploratory stroll along the trail.
As you head through the Alaskan countryside, you are bound to see some of the wildlife of the area: moose, bears, lynx, coyotes, migrating birds, hawks and eagles.
The trail leads through the flat lands to the beach of the Kachemak Bay and the glorious sky opens up before you. The scenery of the area is stunning and you get to ride through it without a care in the world.
The horses are well-mannered and expertly maintained. Even novice riders will have an excellent time on this trail and each tour is adjusted to the level of the group that day.
