Horseshoe Canyon Ranch is like other dude ranches, riding horses is the number one attraction. But this ranch does have some different attractions.

Have you ever flew through the air on a zip line? I haven’t, but it does sound thrilling. Their zip-line is almost a half mile long and you can go as fast as 50mph. Sounds fun and something I’d like to get up the courage to try.

In the meantime I’ll settle for the horseback riding.

Other offerings at the ranch are rock climbing, moonlight horse back rides, campfire time, critter hunts (not sure what this one’s all about), swimming, canoeing, and I still don’t think I’ve covered it all.

The lodge is the gathering place with a pool table, theater room, hot tub and pool.

The cabins are rustic but have the modern conveniences.

Prices are for daily and weekly.

Adults $238. or $1,270.

no activities $156. or $847.
