2.5 Horseback Planter's Experience

Discover historic Gunstock Ranch on a guided horseback tour and leave your mark by planting your very own Legacy Tree. On this 2.5-hour experience, you will travel up our beautiful mountainside trails with stunning views of the ocean, coastline, and hills and valleys of the Koolau Mountains. Enjoy the sights and potential opportunities to see wild pigs, our working cattle operation, and various avian species. On the return trip, you will descend into the Hawaiian Legacy Forest. Many of these trees are rare and, in some cases, highly endangered. Caring individuals like yourselves may be the only way for these trees to avoid extinction.

After selecting your own Legacy Tree, you will be able to personally plant and dedicate your tree in the Legacy Forest. Your tree is tracked via radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology and you will be provided with a certificate of planting that enables you to track the location and growth of your Legacy Tree throughout its lifetime. You will be amazed as you watch your Legacy Tree and the native Hawaiian forest grow over time. Visit FindMy.LegacyTrees.org. A photo of you planting your Legacy Tree will also be permanently linked to your tree online (coming in 2019). This proprietary technology is only available for the Hawaiian Legacy Forest.

We work to keep our ride sizes small because we want you to feel like you have experienced a true paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboy) horseback ride. Private or single person tours can be booked for an additional $100.
