Wilderness Adventure 8 Day Itinerary

Day 1: After arriving at the ranch in Brule around 9 AM, introductions are made, necessary paper work is completed, and it is time to go. We pack up all the gear and food on the pack horses, you are set up on your saddle horse and we head north to West Range Cabins. We follow the Athabasca valley to Solomon Creek, then up Solomon Creek to the cabins. Arriving approx. 4:30 PM. You can move into your cabin, before dinner at 6 PM.

Day 2: We ride to the headwaters of the south fork of Solomon Creek, have our lunch viewing the waterfalls that cascade high on a rock outcropping. Return to the cabins at approx. 4 PM.

Day 3: We pack up all of the gear and head out following the main Solomon creek, then over the pass (elevation is approx. 6500 feet) on a small drainage that leads us to the tent camp and south fork of the Wild Hay River. Approx. 8 hours

Day 4 & 5: We have several options for riding including a ride to the upper end of Moosehorn Lakes on Jasper’s north boundary. Up to the headwaters of Solomon Creek, or through the Keyhole to Park Basin, Laura and Grindstone Passes. All of these trips take you above timberline and Jasper’s north boundary.

Day 6: Pack our gear and say goodbye to the Moosehorn tent camp and begin our ascent to the top of the pass. Follow the rugged trail back down to Solomon creek and return to the cabins, arriving at approx. 5 PM.

Day 7: After breakfast we start our ride to the top of Paradise Ridge. In 2 hours we gain 1200 vertical feet, reaching the ridge line and the fantastic views. We ride the ridge line for 5 km, the views changing along the way. Lunch on top gives you a dining room with a view. It’s very steep on the way down so we must dismount and lead our horses a short distance. Return to the cabins at approx. 4 PM.

Day 8: After breakfast we pack everything up and begin our ride back to civilization. We break for lunch on the way and arrive back at the ranch in Brule approx. 3 PM. Say goodbye to new friends and your trusty horse, and we hope to see you again on another Horseback Adventure.
