It doesn't get any better than this! What an honor and privilege to come to this ranch. The cabins are cozy with warm toasty heaters. Seth maintains the horses with "upmost care". Maris will fit the riders ability and personality with the appropriate horse. The horses are in excellent shape. My wife age 67 a first time rider, felt safe...

Meris and Seth (and their tolerant, alert steeds) are amazing guides to this unique, remote eco-system, packed with wildlife, and thousands of years of human history. Their love and knowledge, and care, of their home terrain is obvious. They were as skilled and gentle at handling our very varied family as they are their horses. Every day's ride was different,...

Me and my 2 boys(ages 8 and 10) stayed at the ranch for 5 days. The boys learned to ride horses in some of the most beautiful landscapes this country has to offer. You ride through open fields that have no houses or people for hundreds of miles and through steep canyons with streams running through them. Horses are cool...

Three nights off the grid in the Gila National Forest. Delicious food (thank you Tim), amazing rides and tour guides (thank you Merris and Seth). Quiet, beautiful, accommodating hosts and accommodations. Highly recommend if you are a horse person and want to experience the great outdoors. Well worth the drive and money!

The horsemanship skills of Meris and Seth came through bright as a star with all the horses they had. My husband and I were overwhelmed by the beauty of the settings and the hospitality was impeccable! Each meal was amazing and our rooms were lovely. We will definitely go back.

My wife a friend and myself just returned from a wonderful week of adventure at Geronimo Trails Ranch. This is the fourth ranch we have visited in the last four years. Most ranches follow the same general format and all that I have visited are very nice. So what makes this ranch special, and yes different from all the others?...

This is the second time we traveled to Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch, and we had such an amazing experience! We brought the kids (ages 20 and 7) this time, and they loved it too. The scenery was breathtaking, the horses were delightfully spirited, the food / Tim's cooking was ridiculously good, and I cannot emphasize enough how nice it was...

I visited with a group of friends in September. Everything I had read in the reviews, I found to be accurate except that it took us 5 hours from Albuquerque, rather than 4, due to road construction. So, do allow some extra time, especially if you want to enjoy the views. Meris greeted us with a big smile. The food...

This could not have been a better experience for us. The rooms were modest but spotless, the food was so good (Thanks Tim!), the scenery was spectacular and the trail rides were perfect. Thanks Merris and Seth for a great vacation with our grandchildren. Your are thoughtlful, kind and wonderful hosts!! I can't recommend this enough.

I ran across this place doing research and was impressed. I invited my son to join me in this adventure, and we were not disappointed. We spent an average of 4-6 hours a day in the saddle and never saw the samething twice. The history of the are was incredible. Meris and Seth both were very knowledgable and accepted my...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is a real western adventure! Horseback riding or hiking takes guests through open meadows, tall ponderosa forests, up on high hills where the views go on forever, and down into deep canyons with sheer cliffs and crystal clear streams. From the "Top of the World" guests can view the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest, Aldo Leopold and Gila Wildernesses. Elk, mule deer, wild turkey, javelina and other wildlife abound. Pit houses, Cliff Dwellings, and Pictographs (rock art) of the earliest inhabitants, the Mimbres (750-1150 AD) to explore in the immediate vicinity. This is the land Geronimo and the Apaches roamed. Outstanding gentle and responsive horses for every ability. Comfortable, attractive accommodations, warm hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, great food. Come enjoy the peace and quiet at our small ranch! ... more   less
