Horseback Riding at Mountaintop Ranch is a real vacationer treat. A totally unique way to experience
the Blue Ridge Mountains!

Mountaintop Ranch offers rides for our cabin guests and the public. Most rides are private tours but we do take groups up to 8 people. Rides are by reservation only. We offer 4 rides…we adjust times according to clients preference and the ranch scheduling.

Preference is given to guests staying in our cabins on the ranch. We ride year-round ….weather and footing acceptable. Come enjoy one of the most memorable experiences you will have in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the back of some of the best horses in the World ( and we don’t say that lightly). Most of the horses were
bred, born, and trained here on the Ranch.
Rides are guided tours only…all rides done at the walk while you take in the breathtaking scenery.

For descriptions of our rides and prices please visit the "Horseback Riding" page. 

Backcountry Hike to Naked Creek Falls 

Mountaintop Ranch has private access to the 60ft and 45ft falls. The falls are on Shenandoah National Park property but are next to impossible to access from the park. To exit the falls is also on private property. Mountaintop Ranch has arranged to have private guided backcountry hikes to the falls. We provide trekking poles to help you through your hike. You will hike downhill to the falls - once you get there relax, explore and swim in the 40ft deep pool at the bottom of the falls. We will exit the falls on the park fire road and up through a small private property where there will be a vehicle waiting to bring you up the mountain. After you return to headquarters, enjoy lunch on the porch of the main cabin... relax and rehydrate!



Mountaintop Ranch offers supervised target shooting off our mountain trails. This activity is supervised by ranch staff ONLY! Clients have to provide their own weapons and ammunition. 



Bring your fishing poles along, with 350 acres to roam you're sure to find use for it! The ranch has a fishing pond on property... within a few yards from the cabins! There is also creek fishing on Naked Creek.
