Offering scenic horseback rides through Tahoe National Forest. The Courtney family has owned and operated the stables since 1967, now managed by the 3rd generation of the family. Alpine Meadows has always strived to provide a fun and family oriented atmosphere for all types of riders.
Take Highway 89. Turn onto Alpine Meadows Road. The stables are a half mile up on the left.
The first 1½ miles of the trail follows an old mining road and is relatively easy. The trail then becomes steeper, with many switchbacks as you drop down to the North Fork of the American River.
Try one of our 15 restaurants, or 40 quaint shops and services. Don’t miss the Old Town Gallery featuring the works of 60 local artists, all in one old historical building. Four museums can be found within a few blocks, where history buffs will find lots of rich Gold Country history.
This campground has 40 sites with tables and grills. There are toilets and potable water, as well as a boat launch.
