Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch Activities
Your New Mexico Family Vacation Adventure Awaits!
Our goal is for you to have an unforgettable vacation and that’s why we cater to you specifically. We love the small size of our ranch because it allows us to get to know each of our guests and learn what you want from your experience here at the ranch. We have a passion for the land, the animals, and the history, and we look forward to sharing it all with you.
Our main focus is on trail riding and seeing the beautiful scenery by horseback. From mountain views to deep canyons with crystal clear streams running through them, our vast area allows for you to see a different area and ride different trails every day of your stay. We have well trained, responsive horses and can accommodate any level of rider from beginner to experienced.
Discover the history of this fascinating area: Explore remains of Mimbres pit houses and cliff dwellings dating from 200-1150 AD, search for pottery shards and view pictographs; learn about the homeland of Geronimo and the Chiricahua Apaches, Basque Sheepherders and Tin Mining! Enjoy other adventures like swimming in the creek, unguided hiking or fishing, and evening campfires under the shining night sky.
