Details of Rankin Ranch, Caliente, California Dude Ranch Details for Rankin Ranch

Active Adventure


The Quarter Circle U Rankin Ranch is truly a well kept secret, located deep in the Tehachapi Mountains. It has been a working cattle ranch since the days of the Civil War, and the Rankin family still raises White Face Hereford cattle just as their ancestors did 150 years ago. Guests travel from across the United States and Europe to visit this guest ranch. They enjoy the fact that it is a “real” working ranch, and are fascinated with its century old history. Many guests emphasize the importance of the “family” atmosphere; meeting and visiting with Rankin family members is routine as they all live right on the ranch...4th, 5th and 6th generations. “Western hospitality” is part of your package!
The favorite activity at the ranch has always been the horseback riding. We have both adult and children’s rides (riding starts at age six) which explore our meadows, Walker’s Basin Creek, and mountain ridges overlooking our beautiful little valley.
Parents and grandparents especially appreciate the supervised children’s program for ages 4-11 during our regular season. They enjoy arts and crafts, hikes, and visits to the animal farm.
Other ranch activities include swimming, hiking, fishing (trout stocked pond), shuffleboard, ping pong, recreation room and planned evening activities. Adventure West…Kidstuff says, “A full operation cattle ranch, Rankin offers a fun filled, down home kind of vacation, complete with tradition, history and diversions for both young and old.”
