Gunstock Ranch - Legacy Horseback Ride
Purchase one (1) Hawaiian Forest Legacy Horseback Ride for half price!
(For Ages 7 years and Up)
Includes a Monarch Milo Legacy Tree that you will plant help preserve our Hawaiian Forest!
Discover historic Gunstock Ranch on a small group, guided horseback tour and leave your mark by planting your very own Legacy Tree. On this 2.5-hour experience, you will travel up our beautiful mountainside trails with stunning views of the ocean, coastline, and hills and valleys of the Koolau Mountains. On the return trip, you will descend into the Hawaiian Legacy Forest. Many of these trees are rare and, in some cases, highly endangered. Caring individuals like you may be the only way for these trees to avoid extinction.
After selecting your own Legacy Tree, you will be able to personally plant and dedicate your tree in the Legacy Forest. Your tree is tracked via radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology and you will be provided with a voucher of planting that enables you to track the location and growth of your Legacy Tree throughout its lifetime by visiting www.FindMy.LegacyTrees.org
A recording of you planting your Legacy Tree will be emailed to you and a copy will be permanently linked to your tree online (coming in 2018). This proprietary technology is only available for the Hawaiian Legacy Forest.
At Gunstock Ranch, we work hard to keep our tour groups small and intimate. Enjoy the sights and potential opportunities to see wild pigs, our working cattle operation, and various avian species on our Horseback Planter’s Experience and plant a Legacy Tree to help preserve Hawaii’s ecological heritage. This is a great ride for the entire family, ages 7 and up.
