Let’s be honest – most folks come to The Hideout to ride all day, every day.

There are, however,  some supportive family members and friends who might tag along on one horse-lover’s vacation but have interests that lie in other places. Perhaps they want to spend a week reading and relaxing on the spacious front porch of their cabin. Maybe they prefer to do a half-day ride and then trap shoot or fly fish in the afternoon, or perhaps they are most interested in seeing Wyoming back country while being toured around the Big Horn Mountains in our famous “Red Dragon” SUV to an adventurous or romantic picnic lunch destination. Some folks might even want to spend an afternoon in downtown historic Cody before heading to the Cody Nite Rodeo! We also have mountain bikes available at the lodge as well as staff who are knowledgeable about local hiking trails if you prefer outdoor adventure on foot.

Fortunately, the possibilities at The Hideout are endless when it comes to activities  – what do you want to do during your time in or out of the saddle?

Fly fishing at The Hideout!

In addition to the beautiful Shell Falls, the Big Horn Mountains offer vast scenery and thousands of acres of untouched wilderness


Shell is a treasure chest of fossils – sometimes our lucky guests can visit an active dinosaur fossil dig site!
