Welcome…

Golden Hills Trail RidesGolden Hills Trail Rides is located in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Southern-Central Missouri.

The picturesque ranch is formerly a very large cattle ranch with crystal clear spring fed streams, forest, massive bluffs, large caves, some so large that you can ride your horse into them.

Beautiful valleys like Paradise Valley with wide open ranges offer riding enjoyment at all levels from beginner to the most advanced trails like Snowy River or advanced Hidden Loop.

Over 200 miles of trails and roads privately owned, you do not share trails or roads with ATV’s, pick-ups, dogs or hikers, just the occasional deer, turkey and small animals and of course, other Golden Hills Trail Riders.

You can ride the trails for a week everyday and not be able to ride all 200 miles of trails. The trails are all marked with signs and Golden Hills will provide you with a map of the trails for the vacation of a life time.

Visit us this year in mid America! Be sure to bring your camera and plenty of film.

I have been lucky to visit Golden Hills for the last two years in late October. I will be visiting again this October and look forward to the clean air, crystal clear water and the great food that is provided during our stay! (Kay is a great cook!)
The trees are just starting to change when we get there and by the end of our ride the colors are beautiful!
The variety of trails offer an easy ride for families with small riders or more difficult trails for those more adventurous!
(We have shoes on all four hooves due to the rocky terrain.)

I visited for the first time in October ’09 with the group “Equi-Friends.” We had a very nice time, in spite of not so great weather. The hospitality and friendly owners were great, really made us all feel welcome. We enjoyed those hearty breakfasts and drinking coffee in the mornings while we socialized in the big hall. Some of our group camped, but I stayed in the motel which worked out really well since I traveled from the Northwest.

Our group liked it so much, we plan to return in 2010!

My wife and I have been to Golden Hills on three occasions. We love the Goldens and the trail rides there.The last trip we got a close up photo of a bald eagle as we entered Paradise Valley. He was in the tree directly over the creek. It was fascinating.

Love to ride at Golden Hills. Trails are rocky so shoes are a must. The best part is the people we meet when we go there. Thanks Shelley, Phil, Pam, Linda, Yvonne and Connie for making the ride so great this year. Camp grounds are really nice and clean and food is good.

My family and I went to Golden Hills for the first time last June. It was absolutely amazing. Trails are good and plentiful. Chuck and Kay are the most welcoming people! We are planning to return again this June–just a couple of weeks from now. My kids are counting the days (and so am I)!!!

Our family uses Golden Hills as the carrot that gets us through the rest of the year! Our family has been blessed with good memories over the past ten years down there. I wish we could all live there.

Hi Kay and Chuck…
I was fortunate to finish my last vacation at your wonderful camp. This time…. I have three sisters-in-law who would like to drive cattle. They are not experienced riders and would need to lease your horses for the week. (I have Jasper and would need a campsite. I suspect they would prefer a bunkhouse to my tent….. Is there any special week that we could be assured of a “cattle drive” or two. Frankly, this is on my “bucket list” but I haven’t found a dude ranch that has a reasonable charge for helping them with their ranch work. Please let me know when you might be moving cattle. We would love to be part of it. Thanks for your time.

Kay and Chuck I was looking for your email address and read all of the notes from your guests and decided to ad mine. EVERY time I have been your guest you have been very kind and open with me. I love it there and I am looking forward to my next trip this month yet I hope. The rooms have always been clean and comfortable. See you all soon.

We had a great time at your wonderful resort. The trails were diverse, beautiful and loads of fun! The campsite was so peaceful and relaxing. Y’all thought of everything, which made our stay with our horses so enjoyable and easy. Thank you for your hospitality! We will definitely be back!

Hi Kay and Chuck,
I wanted to be sure and say Thank you for the wonderful time we had your Resort. We three girls just loved the time we had together. It was our first time and sure won’t be our last. You have a beautiful place to ride. All of your ranch hands treated us with kindness as well. Thank you for the memories. Hope to see you soon!

I day rode there twice in 2014 with friends, and plan to return again this year with my new LQ trailer. This is one of my favorite places to ride. Beautifully maintained and well marked trails, and lot of caves, and springs to explore. Lots of shady parking spots, a pool to swim in, or a short drive to the river for swimming. Chuck and Kay are delightful hosts as well.
If you haven’t been there before, be sure to add it to your list of places to visit.

Thank you Chuck and Kay for a great week, my wife and I had a relaxing week camping and riding. Thanks for the mapped out rides and making sure we were back every afternoon we’re planning a week this spring with our son and grand kid and some friends. Thanks again for making us feel like family.

We spent two nights/three days at Golden Hills in early May . We were the only ones there as guests. It is an absolutely perfect place to take your horses and RIDE. The variety of flora, fauna, and trails is amazing. Not only are the Goldens wonderful hosts, but the people we met there from the equine community (a first class development) were friendly, helpful, and loved living there. They were from all over the US. We will be back for sure.
