Horse Trail Rides
Located at the head of Ourimbah Creek, Hidden Valley offers many kilometres of bliss on horseback.

Our popular 40 acres bush horse trail ride is an ideal introduction to horse riding. It gives you the experience of getting on and off a horse and riding one of these beautiful animals along a bushland track. No previous horse riding experience is necessary.

Our experienced wranglers will show you the basics of riding before the ride commences.

The 40 Acres bush trail ride takes approx 60 minutes and suits people with limited time and horse riding ability. Horse trail rides are generally only available for those staying at Hidden Valley unless by prior arrangement.

The petting zoo is a hit with children and adults alike. We have 2 miniature horses, guinea pigs, chooks, sheep and a cheeky goat called 'Billy'.


Hidden Valley lies directly on the Great North Walk approximately 7km North of Somersby and 17 km South of Yarramalong.  The scenery is spectacular and the track is generally well maintained.
