Why an Equitrekking Top 20 Ranch?
Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch offers the western vacation of a lifetime! Diverse horseback rides take guests through dramatic canyons with sheer cliffs and crystal clear streams of the 3.3 million acres of Gila National Forest. Guests may also soak in history, visiting pithouses, cliff dwellings and pictographs of the early Mimbres.
From the Horse’s Mouth
Guests that love history will love Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch. Ride the outlaw trails of Billy the Kid, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Visit Native ruins from the early Mimbres (750-1150AD) which remain essentially untouched. Explore the canyons which sheltered the Apache warrior Geronimo during his campaigns in the late 1800’s. Visit the border of Old Mexico, see Native American rock paintings, climb into dwellings over 1000 years old and hold actual pieces of Mimbres pottery in your hands.
At this special ranch, guests may truly get away from the modern world. 85 miles from the nearest stoplight, guests here have only to worry about which trail to take. There is no “nose to tail” horseback riding at this ranch, granting even more freedom.
Enjoy mealtimes in dining room or outside. Ribeye steaks, grilled salmon or trout, pork tenderloin, garden fresh vegetables, blueberry pancakes and chocolate mousse are just some of the selections. The food at this ranch is varied and tasty. Cooks can cater to dietary requirements.
Geronimo Trail Ranch has gentle, responsive and trustworthy horses, mainly Quarter horses and Paints, to accommodate all levels of rider. Faster horseback riding, including trotting and loping is available for capable riders where the terrain allows.
