Deep in the mountains of the Chugiak National Forest on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula lies a small lodge, Alaska Horsemen Trail Adventures. Owner Alex Kime, with the help of his daughter Gretchen started the lodge in 1997 with 8 horses. Today they have grown to over 30 horses and are well known as one of the best horseback rides in Alaska. Specializing in "true Alaskan hospitality", folks comment on the serenity they experience at the lodge. Their care of the horses and the "pioneer" appearance of the lodge has gained them television spots on such shows as Country Music Television’s show "Hit Trip", Fox Television's "Bacheloretts in Alaska", Larry Csonka's "North to Alaska Show" and Paul Gray's "The Alaska Show". Alaska Horsemen Trail Adventures was chosen "Outstanding Business in Tourism" on the Kenai Peninsula for 2002.

In addition to offering a variety of trail rides year around including carriage and sleigh trips, they offer a small unique gift shop selling furs, gold, and locally crafted items. They offer a gold panning experience designed in the fashion of the Alaskan pioneer days. A beautiful log pavilion and fire pit for special occasions and horse boarding is available for the traveler. Folks are welcome to browse around and enjoy the baby horses they have every spring.

Located in the small mountain community of Cooper Landing, we feel this is the heart of the Kenai Peninsula as we are 100 miles from Anchorage, 45 miles from Seward, 50 miles to Soldotna and 125 miles to Homer. Cooper Landing offers great lodging, restaurants, as well as fishing in the Kenai River, raft trips and great hiking and biking trails.

"It would be our pleasure to share this magnificent country with you and provide a safe and memorable horseback experience on our Alaskan trail horses. Alex Kime, your host, has been adventuring in Alaska since 1963. You will experience true Alaskan hospitality with Alaska Horsemen.
