Waterfall Picnic Horseback Ride

Join us on our most popular horseback adventure, offered since 1978! Ride across our historic working cattle ranch as you soak up the breathtaking views of the Makaleha Mountains, made famous in the Jurassic Park movies. Explore the ranch as you ride a horse, paired just for you, with our experienced guides who are educated in natural horsemanship skills and well versed in Hawaii’s history, flora, and fauna.

You’ll arrive at a trailhead leading into the dense Hawaiian rainforest which begins the hiking portion of this adventure. Descend down a half mile long hiking path with rough-hewn stairs and handheld ropes to arrive at our private 80-foot waterfall oasis! Take a refreshing swim, cool off and explore the falls as we prepare a delicious picnic-style lunch.

The journey continues as you hike back, crossing streams and climbing a daring 10-foot rock wall at the top of the falls. After you’ve conquered the wall, relax and enjoy the sweeping views of the valley below!

Jump on your horse and ride back to the stables, across the verdant pastures, rounding out the perfect Hawaiian horseback adventure. Join us on our north shore Kaua’i ranch!
