During the winter, (Dec, Jan, Feb) many species of bird migrate over our ranch and bird watching is at its best. We also have horses, and mules for rent, and all the necessary equipment for riding. We offer guided climbing on the ranch; we have routes from 5.6 to 5.12 and cater to all experience levels. The ranch is 17,000 acres of pristine wilderness hiking. We also have a small herd of 27 buffalo near housing facilities.
Vacation Rental Property
You can participate in any of these activities on the ranch or use the ranch as a basecamp for your Copper Canyon adventures.
Sleeps & # of Bedrooms
The ranch is very remote and rustic, picture homesteading with the added benefits of solar water and electricity and internet, our housing are simple adobe houses. Parents of small children, and seniors with health issues should be aware it takes time to get to the nearest doctor or hospital. Though we do have a complete first aid kit and we feel the ranch is a great place for kids, ours have grown up here. We have facilities for all groups; singles, family, couples ect.
Rancho El Nogal is located in a very remote mountain wilderness area. The closest place to purchase food or supplies is 2 hours away. Because of our remoteness, we raise most of our own food and what we don’t raise we purchase from local Mennonite colonies. All accommodations can include 3 meals a day. Meals are served “ranch style” at set times during the day. Field lunches are prepared by the cooks in the morning for those that will be spending the day in the field.
We restrict the use of drugs.
