Rides are offered twice an hour and on your journey through Wahoo Hill and around the State park you will be treated to spectacular scenery and may even catch a few glimpses of wildlife native to our area. Next, visit the stables to take in some horseback riding action with knowledgeable, expert guides who will take you on a one-hour trail ride. The experienced horses and trained guides make these trail rides a great option for all ages and comfort levels. Hayrides can also be scheduled if you would like a Saturday family outing or are looking for a fun activity for a large group. The gift shop is a great final stop with gifts and souvenirs galore plus tasty candy and ice cream treats you won’t be able to resist.

Admission into the State Park is free and the Beavers Bend Depot is a great place to spend a weekend getaway. Contact Lago Vista Bed and Breakfast for more information or to inquire about a reservation. The train, horses and friendly, welcoming people are waiting–we can’t wait to see you!
