HORSE CAMPING TRIPS
Halfmoon Packing & Outfitting offers Progressive multi night camping trips in the Holy Cross Wilderness and Mt Massive Wilderness areas. You can choose to travel between 5 and 20 miles per day. These wilderness areas are designated by Congress and limited to foot and horseback travel, no motor vehicles or bicycles to contend with here. Trips can be tailored to your desires focusing on your choice of riding, wildlife viewing, photography or fishing in Colorado.
In 2013, at a clients request we received a special use permit from the USFS for a two week trip on the Colorado Trail. We rode from Tennessee Pass to Silverton averaging 18 miles per day while feasting on steaks, swordfish and salmon.
We normally gain access to the timberline locations by the end of June. It is possible to spend a few days in the same prepared camp built with wall tents or plan a progressive trip with each night in a different location. Progressive trips use backpacking tents. We can even customize your time in the saddle each day!
Give us a call or send and email and we will build a trip to match your wants.
