Your Maui horseback tour begins at the Mendes Ranch Corral, where you’ll meet the paniolos and your horse before embarking on a 90-minute ride.
8:45am Tour:This morning ride canters across rolling green pastures and down towards Waihee Valley, where you’ll ride along the wave-battered coast with the Pacific Ocean as your backdrop. You guides will snap photos of you up in the saddle, and you’ll gradually ascend your way up the mountain on the return trip back to the corral.
11:30am or 12:15pm Tour:For the afternoon ride, you’ll journey up Waihee Valley, where lookout points provide panoramic vistas of waterfalls tumbling through the valley. Snap photos of the island’s central valley and coastline off in the distance, and enjoy the cool, misty uplands set high above the ranch. You’ll return along the edge of Waihee Valley, where taro patches and plantation homes offer glimpses of Maui’s past, before returning to the Mendes Ranch corral.
