Wildlife Hikes / Photography
Monticello, Utah is home to the Hideout Golf Club, voted Golf Week Top 5 Course in Utah. Only 25 minutes from the ranch. Visit www.monticelloutah.org
Only 7 miles from the ranch. Either fish trout in the city reservoirs or fish bass or pike in Recapture Reservoir.
One of our favorite day hikes is in SOUTH MULE CANYON. There are several ruins in this beautiful canyon. It is a very easy walk for you and for children. You can make it a half day hike or an all day adventure. There are many places to eat lunch and be inspired by nature and the ancient culture that lived here 700 to 1,000 years ago. Ask us about other great day hikes.
There are many self guided trails that start at the cabin and continue into the Manti La-Sal National Forest. During certain times of the year you may see wildlife such as turkeys and deer.
4th of July
There is nothing compared to Blanding's 4th of July celebration! Don't miss this true small town USA celebration, starting with a parade; all day festivities; and ending with a fireworks display that has been quoted as being "better than disneyland's celebration!"
Make sure and visit the Dinosaur Museum, The Edge of the Cedars Museum (Indian artifacts), and Huck's Museum (largest private collection of Anasazi artifacts) in Blanding.
Water Activities / Picnicing
Choose from 3 reservoirs that are located only 6 miles from the ranch and enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, or picnicing!
The Abajo Loop
Continue your trip over the Abajo Mountain, through the Manti La-Sal National Forest and on to Monticello. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, maybe pack a picnic to enjoy in the campground, or enjoy lunch in the town of Monticello. This is a good graveled road. No RV's. This mountain will just get you started on your San Juan County scenic adventure! Talk to us about many other scenic adventures.
