BIKING

For those of you that prefer to travel around and explore on two wheels, we have a selection of trail bikes for guests to use, free of charge - biking aficionados are also welcome to bring their own bikes to the ranch.

There are numerous trails that lead from our property into the surrounding desert and endless miles of challenging biking on moderate to strenuous terrain await you at the National Wildlife Refuge where you will be rewarded with spectacular mountain views of Baboquivari to the west and the Sierras to the east.  You may also see antelope, deer, javelina, jack rabbits, bobcats and a wide variety of birds and raptors in their natural habitat.

Our remote location offers excellent opportunities for long distance biking with little or no traffic and we are more than happy to provide packed lunches for those of you that want to go out for an all day biking adventure.
