Breakfast Ride & Cookout
The Breakfast Ride & Cookout in Andreas Canyon is a time-honored tradition at Smoke Tree Ranch, and a special treat for everyone. Guests start their morning with donuts, pastries, coffee, and a cowboy crooner on the Ranch House porch, prior to making their way to Andreas Canyon by caravan. Upon arrival in the canyons, guests are treated to a full breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, ham, pancakes with melted butter and hot syrup, fresh orange juice, coffee, hot chocolate, donuts and homemade pastries. Following breakfast, guests may depart on a guided horseback ride through the canyons, embark on a hike, or just relax and enjoy the tranquil setting. In Andreas Canyon, you will discover scenic foot trails leading past groves of stately skirted palms, unusual rock formations (some containing Cahuilla rock art), and the perennial Andreas Creek. The Indian Trading Post is located in Palm Canyon.
