Thanks to the help of the U.S. Border Patrol, Organ Pipe Cactus was able to identify and open up select trails for equestrian use. Horseback riding is a great way to experience the desert and explore parts of the desert that few get a chance to see. In order to help preserve the fragile desert ecosystem, a few guidelines must be followed.
Please stop by the Kris Eggle Visitor Center or call (520) 387-6849 ext. 7302 for more information.
Horse camping is available at Twin Peaks Campground
Currently, visitors may ride on certain existing, developed trails. In the future, we hope to offer more equestrian options. As always, horse use is allowed in the federally designated Wilderness sections of Organ Pipe Cactus.
