Horse & Pack Stock: Know Before You Go

The Monument offers many opportunities to experience the backcountry by horse but please note that designated horse & pack stock routes have not been established on the Monument.

Before you begin to explore this region, take time to plan and be prepared with the proper equipment, maps, knowledge, and a backcountry permit. Weed-free feed is required. Technology can make backcountry travel more comfortable, but be aware that cell phones, radios, and GPS units do not work in many areas. Rescues can take several days and are expensive. Most small towns lack veterinary services.
