Horseback Riding & Dude Ranches

Lots of Horses

Another outdoor activity in the I-87 corridor is horses and riding. NY 418, The Dude Ranch Trail, is another scenic byway route dedicated to our equine friends. This road begins in Warrensburg and heads west towards Stony Creek. You can still find old fashioned dude ranches, especially along the old Delaware & Hudson Adirondack Railway Route, now the Upper Hudson RR. Plus, there are regular ranches and stables where you can ride horses by the hour. The numerous Adirondack trails provide endless scenic routes to ride on. The webmaster appreciates horses but his riding experience consists of being led around on a pony when he was a little kid. Though I love petting and greeting these noble beasts.
