"Shenandoah Valley’s Premier Horseback Riding Destination.”

Mountaintop Ranch is a secluded ranch in the famous Blue Ridge Mountains that has been in the family for nearly 50 years. Our picturesque trails pass through the high country, scenic mountain meadows and wooded areas of the famous Blue Ridge bordering The Shenandoah National Park. Fresh mountain air, breath-taking scenery, and wildlife are enjoyed on all of our exclusive and private guided trail rides. This is a scenic adventure you will not want to miss!

Around the Ranch guided trail ride $200 per person & includes a trailside lunch

Sunset and Star Gazing Ride $100 per person


*your pet is welcome on the trails if your dog is accustomed to riding with horses

Private Rides start at $90 for a refreshing morning ride to begin your day before hiking, fishing, napping or wine tasting tours begin. We can also schedule this ride for mid-day depending on the time of year. Mountaintop Ranch is surrounded by the National Park on 3 sides and is an isolated oasis. You will get to enjoy the beauty of the Mountains on a guided ride that is for both first time or skilled riders.



You can end your day with a beautiful sunset ride overlooking the mountains at 3000 ft…a peaceful, quiet and serene ride.

This ride begins one hour before sunset…a one of a kind experience.

This ride is offered year-round and the ride leaves the stables one hour before sunset for $125


You can spend 2-3 hours on horseback riding the 400 acres of Mountaintop Ranch exploring the Appalachian trails as they did 100 years ago …on horseback. This ride goes through the wilderness trails and climbs up to the high mountain meadow giving you and a 360-degree view of the Blue Ridge and The Shenandoah National Park. The view is better than any offered on the Park itself. Your guide who is native to the area will point out wildlife, the flora, and fauna of the region and stories of the Mountain people who still live back in the hollows surrounding the ranch. $200

All rides are Private. We do not offer general rides for the public.


We will try to tailor the rides to your needs. If you love your ride..please show some appreciation to your guide!

Riders must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. 

We have a strict 48-hour cancellation policy. Mountaintop Ranch reserves the right to cancel due to inclement weather…but a little bit of rain never hurt anyone…so come prepared! Some rides might not always be available due to trail conditions, the number of guests we have with us on the ranch and the number of horses we have available, or other unforeseen reasons, so please check with the hostess of Mountaintop Ranch before making your final plans.
