Vacation is a time when you are looking to recharge and reconnect (either with others or with yourself). However, that can be difficult when you rely on your electronic devices day and night. So it’s time for a New Mexico digital detox! Technology is a part of our everyday lives. But vacation is the chance when you have the opportunity to completely unplug from the digital world and be present with the people around you. It’s easy to achieve a New Mexico digital detox at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch. Cell phone coverage stops 70 miles away so your stay will be undisturbed.
New Mexico Digital Detox
Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is 85 miles from the nearest stoplight. Evidence of the modern man’s intrusion is virtually absent. Our 360 degree views don’t include any cities, houses, lights, or even paved roads. We are in the cool higher elevations of the Black Range Mountains of southwest New Mexico. Here, beneath the tall Ponderosa pines, the quiet is such that you can hear the approach of an eagle from the beat of the air beneath his wings. The timeless vistas of the mountains and canyons evoke the heritage of the American cowboy, and abound with relics of Native American societies who have gone before us.
The Gila National Forest is a truly unspoiled setting, secluded and serene. The ranch itself is off the power grid; electricity comes from solar arrays and water comes from stream fed wells. Don’t worry, you will still have creature comforts in our attractive and comfortable cabins. Each comes with fully equipped baths and covered porches.
After a few days on their New Mexico dude ranch vacations, our guests often lose track of the date…and find they don’t care anymore. As has often been observed, it is hard to have a bad day on the back of a good horse. This is a special place in America, an adventure offering a unique perspective on our past and encouraging some thoughtful reflection on the future.

Whether horseback riding, hiking, discovering 1,000 year old cliff dwellings or sitting around the campfire, it is certainly an environment where you can create lifetime memories with your family and friends. After a day out exploring the Gila National Forest, we rely on family games instead of video games for evening entertainment. Kids (and adults too!) love playing games such as Apples to Apples, Uno, or regular card games.
We often hear from our guests that their favorite part of coming to Geronimo Trail is being able to tell their office “I will be disconnected for a week.” It is truly a rare thing in this day and age to have the opportunity to unplug and people cherish that opportunity and embrace it.
