Sierra Giganta - Ranch Culture / Ranch Gardens

Highlights - This trip offers a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the local folks and learn the history and ranch culture of Old California. Tents and campfires under the stars are home for the nights in the beautiful Sierra de la Giganta.

For the Ranch Garden Ride - the pride of the señoras at the mountain ranches are the flower gardens. In spring we travel to visit and admire the splashes of color, an attraction to migrating birds and brilliant hummers too !

After breakfast and check-out from your favorite hotel in Loreto, we'll start up the road into the mountains and begin learning about the natural history and history of the area. After arriving at Rancho Viejo, we'll meet our mules and local rancher guide and head out on trails leading from the ranch to the quaint historic village of San Javier. We'll have lunch at a small restaurant and visit the mission and its beautiful 300 year old gardens.

In the afternoon we'll ride south of the village to ranches, desert gardens and oasis pools. Some riding will be along little used mountain dirt roads, some over ridges and old canyon trails. Sometimes we stop at ranches to share a meal with the families, and sometimes a trail lunch. Campfire dinners at the end of the day to let you unwind and enjoy the desert silence and sounds. Enjoy the multitude of stars at a beautiful remote camping site each day. (some 2 to 3 day trips can be arranged for smalll rooms rented in the village of San Javier)


This may be arranged as a 2 to 5 day ride... getting to know 3 to 10 different ranches in the San Javier watersheds. On our last riding day we'll head back to our ranch trailhead and in the afternoon return to Loreto. Overnight in Loreto Hotel on your own. For more details contact us.
