Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch

1/28/2015 12:00:25 PM

Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch – A Centuries Old Refuge for Today’s Man New Mexico was home to the famous Apache warrior Geronimo and the base of his operations during the 1800s. Outlaws like Billy the Kid and Butch Cassidy have equally added to the Black Range Mountains’ heritage, attracting people who later decide to stay after falling in love with the gentle terrain, open meadows, and groups of pines, cedars and junipers. Flaunting both the area’s history and beauty, Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch promises its guests a unique cowboy experience with a hint of Native American culture.

Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch

Exploring Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch Nestled beneath the Ponderosa pines at the top of the Black Range Mountains in New Mexico, this dude ranch offers to cut you off from the hustle and bustle of city life. The nearest stoplight is 85 miles away while phone coverage is 70 miles away. The ranch is also cut off the power grid, generating its electricity through solar arrays and standby generators. However, you won’t miss your busy life while at the ranch. In addition to a wide array of activities, you can enjoy the beauty and history of the area through cliff dwellings and rock wall writings. You’ll also love our stream fed wells, which allow you to experience a unique taste that is bound to bring you back every year. If you seek adventure and excitement at Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch, rest assured that you will get what you want. However, the guest ranch also offers you the chance to unwind at the nearby Riverbend Hot Springs. Located in the Historic Bath House District on the banks of the Rio Grande, the resort provides access to an underground volcanic lake that combines both healing minerals and salts. And in case you’re wondering, you won’t spend too much since the dude ranch will secure you a 10% discount at the resort.

Riverbend Hot Springs

Why Book Your Next Holiday at the Ranch  If you’ve been a fan of cowboys and Indians, you can explore the histories of both through Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch. In addition to getting the chance to hike through beautiful historic trails where the Apache warrior fought for his land, you can enjoy the following features which make the ranch worth visiting.


Flexibility of Deciding Your Schedule – There isn’t a one-plan-fits-all scheme at this dude ranch; simply tell the staff how you intend to spend your day. You can help the crew feed and care for the horses, improve your roping skills, or simply kick back and enjoy the serenity surrounding you.

Riding and Hiking Famous Trails – You can take one of the ranch’s trained horses or wear your hiking boots to explore the unspoiled trails of the area. Follow the trails famous outlaws once sought refuge in and get ready to admire miles of pine forests, deep canyons and lush meadows.

Well-Trained, Trustworthy Horses - Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch has gentle horses which adults and children alike can ride on to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. If you want, you can also watch the crew play rodeo games and learn how to twirl around a lariat rope.

Nearby Native Ruins – One of the attractions of the area is the Native ruins dating all the way to 750AD. These untouched historical monuments have been known to amaze visitors, at times even more than the canyons in which Geronimo sought shelter during his campaigns in the 1800s.

Comfortable Accommodation – From March 8th to November 15th, you can be the ranch’s guest for as low as $284 per night for double occupancy (5-7 night stay). The cabins are cozy thanks to fireplaces, queen-sized beds, bunk beds, and all the electronics you’ll need during your stay. However, what makes the cabins stand out is their Native American style or Cowboy motif. These will immerse you further in the area’s culture and bring out the cowboy within you.

Delicious Meals for Hearty Appetites – Whether you choose to enjoy your meals in the dining room or the ranch’s picnic tables, rest assured that you’re bound to surprise your palate with a range of flavors. From rib eye steaks to pork tenderloin and all the way to New Mexican scrambled eggs; you’ll discover firsthand why the ranch has been praised for its fine dining experience.

Fun for Wilderness Lovers – If you’re a fan of butterflies, birds, unique fish and proud wildlife, you’ll get to see all of these while staying at the ranch. You can introduce your little ones to different animals and birds they’d never see roam around freely in the city.

Nearby Attractions – Old Town, Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, the International Balloon Fiesta, Buckhorn Saloon and Opera House, and the Catwalk are some of the numerous attractions you can visit while staying at the ranch. These may connect you with civilization for a few hours until you return to the peace and quiet you initially sought at the ranch.

The Bottom Line Promising natural beauty, historic significance and the peace and quiet you seek during a vacation, Geronimo Trails Guest Ranch is one of the top dude ranches to book in New Mexico. So don’t wait long before booking your own cabin.

Flying E Ranch

12/23/2014 5:06:48 PM

A Specialist in Authentic Western Hospitality Since 1946

Awarded the title of Best of the West 2011 for Working Dude Ranches by Cowboys & Indians magazine, Flying E Ranch offers a relaxed setting where you and your family can truly unwind. Four miles west of Wickenburg, the ranch overlooks the Vulture Peak formation, which is famous for this historic Vulture Gold Mine nestled in it. It’s also a few hours from the Grand Canyon, Sedona and Las Vegas, ensuring something for everyone.

Flying E Ranch

The History of Flying E Ranch

The original Flying E Ranch was established in 1946 when Lee Everly purchased 3,000 acres and built a lodge with eight guest rooms, a barn inspired by Oregon, and a 3,200 ft. airstrip. I 1952, the ranch ended up in the hands of George and Vi Wellik after they spotted the ranch from their private plane in 1949. However, despite dedicating ample time to the ranch, he stayed in Bellflower, California for his tire and land developing businesses. Ranch managers handled everything until 1960 when he, his wife and two children took full control of the ranch.

Flying E Ranch History

 George and Vi expanded the ranch by purchasing additional land and leases bringing its area up to 21,000 acres. However, George donated land to the town, prompting it to name its Municipal Airport of Wickenburg as Wellik Field in his memory. Many changes have taken place since then; the airstrip was transformed into a grass horse pasture while the ranch carried out cow/calf operations, gaining fame for its Angus and Barzona stock.

Why You’ll Fall in Love with Flying E Ranch Like George and Vi

If you enjoy spending your vacations at dude ranches, Flying E Ranch should be one of your options. Here are some reasons why:  Classy Accommodation with a Hint of the West – The 2013 winner of Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence offers comfortable rooms that feature a western décor as well as numerous amenities such as wet bars, private baths, and electric heating and air conditioning. You can take your pick from any of the 15 rooms offered, each of which comes with a view of the lodge or heated pool. However, if you’re traveling with your family, you can opt for either the Wigwam Family House or Southwest Family House. Western Style, Hearty Meals – Western food lovers and fans of the traditional dude ranch dining style will enjoy their meals at the ranch. While breakfast is made to order, you can sink your teeth into a delicious buffet lunch on the patio. You’ll know when lunch is served when you hear the chow bell ringing. Meanwhile, dinner is served family style in Flying E’s comfy dining room. If you do get hungry in between, you can indulge in fresh fruit, cookies, candy, lemonade, and ice tea from the pantry.


Happy Hour at the Saloon – Flying E Ranch enjoys connecting guests and encouraging them to mingle in its authentic saloon. Between 5:30 and 6:30 pm, you can indulge in a variety of hors d’oeuvres and mixers to complement the beer you bring along. If you haven’t brought any beer on your trip, you can purchase a six pack from Safeway and Bashas stores in Wickenburg.


Wide Range of Fun Activities – There’s never a boring minute at the ranch. When you’re not enjoying Flying E’s traditional western cuisine or interacting with other guests, you can try any of the activities offered. For example, you can join the two-hour horseback rides offered for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders. You can also go hiking or bird watching up Vulture Peak with the help of our professionals or simply soak your stress away at our heated pool or Jacuzzi.

Variety of Ranch Events – The dude ranch is constantly bustling with one event or the other. For the 204-2015 season, you can be part of the Ranch Christmas, cowboy and casino-themed New Year’s Eve, and Annual I Wanna Be a Cowgirl Weekend among other events. You can check the calendar at http://www.flyingeranch.com/events.
