These trips are available as cattle drives in the spring and fall, or gathering and branding or moving between pastures throughout the summer.
New! Spring Cattle Gather and Drive
Circle Cliffs to Boulder
Experience the fun of gathering a herd off of the wide open desert in the spring. You'll ride through the dramatic canyon and range country, searching for cattle, and then help push them through redrock canyons back into town. Spend your nights under the stars, in a canvas tent, and wake to cowboy coffee and the sounds of horses near. This trip is for experienced riders only; all guests must be comfortable cantering through rough terrain.
March 27-April 1. $1500/person.
Boulder to Circle Cliffs
Join us on our November drive out the Burr trail, pushing 80-120 head of cows to their winter range. We'll rope a few, brand and cut before we go, and then head out down a traditional route through redrock canyons. This drive is mainly on roads, with lodging in hotels, and is for the intermediate and up rider.
November 1-6. $1300/person. This trip is full. Please phone if you are interested in a fall cattle drive and we can plan a custom trip.
Cattle on the 50
The Fiftymile Mountain is one of the most remote places in the lower 48 states. It offers breathtaking views, canyons, grassland, and a true, old-fashioned cowboy experience. These trips are NOT for the novice rider, and due to the strenuous nature, all participants must be under 180 lbs (some exceptions for tall riders) and in good physical shape. You'll chase longhorns, learn to rope and brand, eat sourdough biscuits and beans, and sleep hard at the end of a long day's riding.
Truly the adventure of a lifetime! This is a custom trip, and is flexible with dates. Please phone us if you are interested for dates and prices.
We offer our Cattle Drives each spring and fall, when the local herds are driven between open range in the desert country and the lush meadows of the mountain. If you've got a secure seat and an adventuresome spirit, come join us for the trip of a lifetime.
