Today, Jack's is owned and operated by Dale and Cindy, Billy's wife, as well as Teddy, Billy's son.

  • nice place for a ride. get there early as they fill up fast.
  • Lovely ride on the island. Started guided (and our guide was terrific!) then we were asked if we would like to ride solo through the woods, and we took her up on the offer. We were only out for an hour but I felt like that was enough time to do a nice short trail ride. If you want to see a lot of scenery and go further into/around the island, definitely plan for 2 - 2.5 hours or so (if your butt can handle it, that is).
