"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!
