Ride in the beautiful Arizona desert with friendly wranglers who have made this dude ranch their home for years. Stagecoach Trails Guest Ranch borders over 400,000 acres of natural western desert beauty at the foot of the Mohave and Hualapai mountains. You can be assured of breathtaking views and constant sunny days. They offer slow scenic rides amongst the cactus landscape for the novice rider and for the more experienced riders they have trotting and loping rides in the desert washes.
Set up like a little Western town, this dude ranch will make you feel like you've stepped back in time living the life of a true cowboy. Because the founder's oldest daughter is in a wheelchair, the ranch has been designed and built to be fully handicap accessible including a special ramp for wheelchairs to mount horses. This gives them the unique ability to offer a completely barrier-free vacation to all disabled travelers and their families.
Stagecoach Trails Guest Ranch offers an all inclusive package that includes three delicious meals a day, accommodations, two horse back rides a day, swimming pool, hot tub, wagon rides, hiking, mountain bikes, ATV's and much more. Each room has a patio with rocking chairs, some with courtyards, extra large bathrooms, and Western theme decor throughout.

The ranch offers a gentle, slow walking ride or an intermediate trotting ride as well as an exciting fast trotting/loping ride. You get to choose what type of ride you want to go on, not the other way around. Not only are the wranglers friendly and personable, but so are the horses as well! As soon as you leave the corral, you will see nothing but beautiful desert scenery surrounded by 3 mountain ranges - NO cities, or subdivisions, but an occasional coyote in the distance will be seen. There are hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine untouched land at the back gate of the ranch which are available for horseback riding. Rides are offered twice daily except for Sundays when the horses and the wranglers have the day off. Lessons are offered on demand as well as pony rides for the wee ones. For those guests staying over 4 nights the ranch offers a 4 to 5 hour lunch ride into the mountains.
Stagecoach Trails has a variety of activities besides horseback riding available throughout your stay. Guests can relax by the swimming pool or hot tub, go on wagon rides, go hiking, ride mountain bikes, rent ATV's, relax in the Frontier Lodge, play ping pong, billiards, horseshoes, watch movies outdoors on their large screen overlooking the desert or just enjoy the Arizona sunshine or stars at night!
