Travel down the rugged terrain towards the magnificent Pacific Ocean, for sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The easy path meanders from the lush valley towards the coast while your guides share with you the history of the ranch and Mendes family. They are also well versed on the indigenous species of plants in the area. As you approach the rugged, rocky coastline you’ll be in awe of the spectacular sweeping views from the cliffs. Stop to take advantage of the phenomenal photo opportunity from the vista. At this point you are probably beginning to feel a bit more comfortable with your trusty steed and have gotten to know their habits. If you have the desire and are capable, there are even a few spots along the trail where you can trot or canter for even more excitement. Advanced riders in the group love this option, which is unique to Mendes Ranch Maui horseback riding adventures.
Lunch (if purchased): BBQ ribs and chicken, green and pasta salad, baked beans and dinner rolls.
