Summit five on-Ranch peaks

Follow the Eastern valley through pine forests and rhyolite outcroppings to summit Paradise Peak. Hike the Western hills through wildflower meadows to Mary Beth’s Peak and Top of the World. The trails along Rock Creek are ideal for a short stroll, while avid backpackers can appreciate The Ranch’s 20+ miles of trails as an advanced hiking resort.

Get outfitted with hiking boots and a trail map at the Rod & Gun Club. Schedule a guided hike for an in depth look at the flora, fauna and history of The Ranch. Guests are challenged to take a photo on each of The Ranch’s five peaks to earn a place on our “brag board” at The Rod & Gun Club.

Wisdom from the wild

From our Activities Concierge

“On our last morning, we went up to Jimmy's Peak for the view of the entire ranch - it extends from Jimmy's Peak on the east to Top of the World on the west, with about 6 miles of Rock Creek - the blue ribbon trout stream running through the valley. It's such a beautiful property.”

“With almost unlimited hiking thought both forested land and meadows, you are far more likely to see some of the abundant wildlife than another human. ”
