Welcome

to Our Premier New Mexico Dude Ranch

We invite you to enjoy our small, family owned ranch in the mountains of the beautiful 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest of southwest New Mexico. Our New Mexico dude ranch offers a casual and personal atmosphere with 4 rooms and a maximum capacity of 16 guests. Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is open March through mid-November.

Horseback Rides at Our New Mexico Dude Ranch

Horseback riding here takes you over wide open meadows, through tall ponderosa forests, up high hills where the views go on forever, and down deep canyons where crystal clear streams flow. We have a variety of gentle and responsive horses.  They are suitable for all levels of riding ability and the trails start at our back door!

There are no lines or schedules here. Ride as often as you want or not at all…it’s up to you!

Horses are our passion and livelihood. As one of our guests said, “We like everything about your ranch but we especially like the way your horses are loved and treated.” This is a real western adventure and you won’t find better horseback riding anywhere!

More New Mexico Dude Ranch Vacation Experiences

Other activities that our guests enjoy include: seeing the 1,000 year old archaeological sites nearby, campfires at night (sometimes with s’mores and sing-a-longs!), fantastic stargazing, unguided hiking, outdoor and indoor games, roping lessons, photography, swimming in the creek, or just reading a good book on one of our bench swings. This is also the land of Geronimo and where the Apaches once roamed. Our altitude provides moderate temperatures year round, making it the perfect place for outdoor activities.
