Are you ready to embark on a true Western adventure? Have you always dreamed of taking a vacation filled with unlimited horseback riding through spectacular scenery, delicious food, cozy cabins, and endless opportunities for discovery and exploration? Now’s your chance! When you book an all-inclusive getaway at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch, you’ll enjoy all of this and much more. Unlike other vacation options, our authentic New Mexico dude ranch offers a relaxed and personal experience you won’t find elsewhere. 

What’s Included in My Stay at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch?

Located in the heart of the 3.3-million-acre Gila National Forest, Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is the only ranch of its kind in New Mexico. Your getaway includes a stay in one of our cozy cabins, three delicious meals a day, unlimited horseback riding and hiking, ranch activities, educational opportunities, and entertainment! Here’s a breakdown of what to expect during your stay with us:

Unlimited Horseback Riding and Hiking

At Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch, you’ll have the opportunity to ride our well-trained horses – as much or as little as you’d like. We can accommodate all experience levels from beginner to advanced and will match you to one of our well-cared for, responsive mounts so that you can enjoy your rides to the fullest! A complimentary demonstration/lesson is always included with your stay. Saddle up and ride across wide-open meadows and crystal-clear streams, through deep canyons and Ponderosa pines, and to mountain overlooks . No two trails are the same and you can easily spend days exploring this beautiful wilderness. At the end of each ride, enjoy some quality bonding time brushing your horse.

In addition to horseback riding, you’ll find excellent opportunities for hiking and unguided fishing here. Get out and explore the Gila National Forest: go for a hike with Meris and Seth to explore 1,000-year-old archaeological sites right near the ranch, climb up to an overlook to take in the vast, boundless land, or cast a line into one of the nearby creeks and catch a Bass or perhaps the rare Gila Trout!

Cozy Accommodations

We offer four comfortable cabins at the ranch that can accommodate a maximum of 12 guests. Because our ranch is small, you’ll find many opportunities to unplug and bond with your loved ones. Each of our cabins includes wonderful amenities, views of the horses, and complimentary fresh-baked cookies and Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch water bottles. Tea and homemade lemonade are also available throughout the day. 

Educational Experiences

Take a step back in time and dive into history! Here at the ranch, we love to share our local knowledge and educate guests about New Mexico history. We will take you to 1,000-year-old archaeological sites where many ancient artifacts still remain! Come discover pit houses, cliff dwellings, pottery shards, and historic pictographs. Learn about the Mimbres Indians, the famous Apache warrior Geronimo, Basque Sheepherders, tin mining, and more. We can’t wait to help you delve into the mysteries of The Land of Enchantment!

Three Home-Cooked Meals Per Day

Another great part about your stay with us is that you won’t need to sacrifice any of the comforts of home—especially when it comes to meals! During your stay, you can expect three mouthwatering, home-cooked meals per day prepared by our talented cook (plus snacks!). Start off each morning right with a piping-hot breakfast to send you on your way. For lunch, you may find anything from delicious burgers to soup, salad, pizza or quiche! Plentiful fresh fruit and veggies are always available as well. We also pack sandwiches for lunch out on the trails during all-day rides. 

After a fabulous day of adventure, come back to the ranch and join us for a hearty dinner. Our rotating dinner menu typically includes beef and pork roasts, grilled steak, chicken, fish, lamb, BBQ ribs, Mexican and New Mexican cuisine such as enchiladas, tostadas, tamales, and chile rellenos, and more. Abundant fresh vegetables, salad and homemade bread are always available. Try to save room for dessert! 

Ranch Activities and Entertainment

When you’re not out exploring, you’ll also find plenty of fun things to do right here at the ranch! Feel free to play one of our board games or choose one of our Western films and have a family movie night. After dinner, come gather around the campfire to share stories and roast s’mores. Enjoy some of the clearest night skies in the country, making for fantastic stargazing! Or, put on your dancing boots and come join us for some line dancing! The choice is yours!
