A Horseback & Mountain Bike Tour – Enjoy Double the Fun On a Single Trip!

Searching for things to do on Gold Camp Road? We have partnered with Old Stage Riding Stables to bring you a tour that offers double the pleasure all in one trip. Dubbed the Saddle Up-Pedal Down package, it features two stages. The Tour starts off on Horseback and then you ride down Gold Camp Road on a Mountain Bike.

We begin the journey by meeting at the Pikes Peak Adventure Center 15 minutes before your scheduled departure time. We will drive you up to the Old Stage Riding Stables where you will get kitted out for an hour-long guided horseback tour that will take you through the beautiful mountainside scenery.

Then, you will be transported to the entrance of Gold Camp Road.  Here you get to trade in your horse for a mountain bike and enjoy our world famous gold camp road route that brings you even closer to nature as you now traverse our amazing mountains.

This package is a great way to take in more of the natural beauty that one of the most picturesque 14ers of Colorado has to offer.


  • There is a weight limit of 220 lbs. for riding the horses.
  • The descent the same as the Gold Camp Tour, not on the road with the Pikes Peak Bike Tour.
