Here, you’ll have the unique opportunity to slow down from your busy day-to-day life and enjoy the beautiful Gila National Forest by horseback. Although our guest ranch has plenty of solitude and peace away from the hustle and bustle, we also offer modern conveniences and amenities to make your stay memorable, comfortable, and relaxing. If you are making plans for 10 or more guests, you will likely have the ranch to yourselves and our undivided attention! Here are just a few amenities included in your stay.

  • Three delicious, homestyle meals each day and homemade dessert at lunch and dinner. Request your favorite dessert for your birthday, anniversary, or other special occasions!
  • Unlimited horseback riding and hiking.

  • Complimentary water bottles and sunscreen in your cabin.

Horseback Riding

At Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch, you will ride together as a family. We are a small ranch, and although we do not have a dedicated children’s program or babysitting services, we have plenty of ways to keep the kids busy! The minimum age for children to ride horses on the trail is six years old. We also offer short pony rides on the ranch property for children younger than six. Our horses are well-trained and can accommodate any level of rider. Get to know our horses a bit better by visiting our horses’ profile page!

More Fun Family Ranch Activities

In addition to horseback riding, our ranch also offers unlimited hiking opportunities. Swimming in the creek is another popular summertime activity, so remember to bring your swimsuit! You can also try your hand at roping our horseshoes.

When it comes time to settle down for the evening, horseshoes along with a variety of board games are available. For family members who prefer to relax, our bench swings and chaise lounges are a few of the many restful spots on the property.

Native American Culture

During your stay, don’t miss out on the opportunity to explore the Gila’s caves and cliff dwellings! A people called The Mimbres were here from 200-1150 AD, and pieces of their civilization still remain, including pit houses, pottery shards, pictographs, and countless artifacts. You will also learn about the famous Apache warrior, Geronimo, who was born in this area. Discover shelters from the Basque people who brought sheep through the area 100 years ago, and even see the remains of a tin mine operation. There are so many ways to immerse yourself in history during your stay at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch!

We are open March through mid-November.
