Sample Riding Itinerary

  • With 30,000 unspoiled and protected acres of wilderness as your week-long personal playground, backcountry horseback riding at northeast Sonora's Rancho Los Baños offers almost unlimited hours of thrilling, challenging, yet fun-filled adventure riding in remote, rugged and secluded isolation, surrounded by sierras, hills, canyons and unsurpassed, unspoiled nature. Indeed, the sheer vastness of the ranch will inspire you, while the landscapes and scenery that makes us unique will thrill you.

    Discover a world-class riding ranch, quickly gaining worldwide recognition for our outstanding riding trails, our scenery, our back country and adventures. To ride at the ranch is to ride at one of the best riding ranches anywhere in the world. Indeed, those who know riding, and have been to the ranch, continue to return, year after year, having fallen in love with riding at the ranch. It is safe to say that no other ranch in Arizona, Mexico or the Southwest offers the scenery, pristineness, vastness, landscapes and freedom experienced at our ranch.

    At the ranch, besides our many scenic nature trails, you can also ride to numerous historical attractions. Our guests visit a 17th century abandoned Jesuit gold mine [at 6,000 feet of elevation with views that go for miles], by the name of San Jose, where many Native American slaves perished. Deep inside a scrub oak, canopy-filled canyon at the foot of 7,500 ft El Pinito Mountain, guests also visit the remains of a 19th century bandit hiding camp where both American and Mexican outlaws went to lay low. After all, the Wild West did not end at the border.

    You can also ride to 2,000 year old pre-Colombian dwellings full of pictographs, deep inside El Cajon Canyon, or visit a 20 mile long lake, and its dam, built during the Great Depression by the architects and engineers that also built Hoover Dam [the dam is a smaller replica of Hoover]. Guests also visit the ruins of an early 20th century homestead, with a genuine Model T Ford skeleton gathering rust. 

    At Cat Claw Cliffs, you will ride up to the top, with spectacular 360 degree views. These cliffs and its canyons, the story goes, hold the lost gold of an outlaw on the run, stashing his treasure after robbing a stagecoach. If that is not enough, you can ride to magnificent views of famous El Tigre, a nearby Sierra Madre mountain that acted as Geronimo's [famous Apache chief] Last Stronghold. Indeed, to ride at the ranch is to ride in what was once prime Apache country, where the fierce warriors once rode, camped and lived. At the ranch, after all, you are riding, breathing and living through history.

    Besides riding through history, you will also ride through a diversity seldom seen at a guest ranch. You will explore pristine wilderness and diverse habitats and have chance encounters with our wildlife, including mountain lion. Guests ride to our high country, passing through vertical sierras, to locations such as Los Toros, “The Bulls,” a mountainous region so remote and secluded few humans have ever seen. Indeed, so remote is this region, that ferrel cattle roam its mountains, seldom, if ever, having seen a single human being.

    You will also ride to “El Sordo,” “The Deaf Man,” high country so named for the incredible, omnipresent silence and quietness one encounters when there. Down in our Canyonlands, you will ride through stunning, wet, box canyons full of life, with cliff walls hundreds of feet high. You will ride through rock formations, formed over eons, that are beautiful manifestations of nature as it artistically carves its way through time.

    Throughout the ranch, you will explore habitats that are varied, diverse and exotic. You will see regions full of desert palm trees, organ pipe cacti, ocotillo forests, sycamore canopies and much more. You will ride through hills covered in knee-high, golden-colored grass, and see a vast collection of high country vegetation. With a riding elevation between 3,200 to 6,000 feet, your entire conception of what a desert is will be radically altered.

    With no signs of civilization, you will immerse yourself in our high desert environments, whether riding inside box canyons, river beds, vertical and rocky sierras, high elevation terrains, ravines, cliffs, mesas and/or rolling foothills dressed in golden grass. With elevation range between 3,200 and 6,000 feet above sea level, you can select our high country or canyonlands riding trails. With our old and new school genuine Mexican cowboys as your guides, along with our European cowgirls, riding at Rancho Los Baños will become an unforgettable experience, whether you are an experienced rider or an eager beginner.

Setting

  • Private Land - 20,000-40,000 (acres)

  • At Rancho Los Baños you will find a diverse array of desert flora and fauna, with habitats and elevations ranging between 3,200 in our Canyonlands and 7,450 feet above sea level at the top of El Pinito mountain. Here you will see spectacular views that go on for miles, as well as a combination of vegetation unique in the world, to be found nowhere else. The ranch’s many diverse sections, whether in our high country or our Canyonlands, will each offer something different and exotic, combined with a land that is as rugged and wild, and unique, as anywhere on the planet.

Our all inclusive rates and packages offer three great gourmet, home-cooked meals a day, including fresh, mesquite fire cooked Mexican food, both northern and southern Mexican dishes, combined with tasty home-made pastries and other such delights. All snacks and drinks are also provided.

We dine family style in either our dining area or outdoor table, on our balcony, overlooking vistas that are scenic and spectacular. When on hiking adventures, we carry lunches with us inside the canyons, to be eaten in intimate, private and fantastic settings.

Guests are encouraged to bring your own alcohol, as well as favorite foods and snacks as well. Alcohol in moderation served, compliments of the ranch.

Our meals are a constant guest favorite, made with pride and lots of love, without cutting corners, full of quality and quantity.  Tasty, plentiful and delicious, our meals, from breakfast to dinner, will not disappoint.

We do cater to vegetarians, vegans and religious/philosophical tastes.

Children at the Ranch

Great for children aged 6 and over



Children of all ages are welcomed at the ranch to join in with their parents in activities and adventures. We have hosted children as young as 9 months [and she had a wonderful time!]. However, we do not have a children's program. Most children join in with their parents in our many adventures. Of course, adventures can be and are tailored to children in a group, making sure they are suitable to the various physical and mental abilities and limitations of our young guests.

Pre-teens and teenagers, especially, flourish at the ranch. The personal development seen over the course of their stay is very apparent, as they escape the wired world and enter the natural world. Our collection of activities offers fun, entertaining, relaxing, thrilling and challenging adventures that our pre-teen and teen guests absorb fully. Many of them thrive while at the ranch, evolving with each day of their stay. Our ranch is a great opportunity for children to discover mental and physical abilities, and learn a little about themselves in the process. The adventures at the ranch takes them away from their element for a few days, opening their eyes to the outdoors, to being active in nature, and to the beauty of the natural world. With so many kids today wired to TV, video games, cell phones, music, the Internet and more, the ranch offers the opportunity to escape this wired world for a few days. After decompressing and disengaging from their gadgets, our kid guests discover a world beyond the wired, to a world of the wild.

Children under the age of 10 can also have a great time at the ranch. However, the level of fun they have, in our experience, is determined on a kid by kid basis, as well as a group or parental basis. In our experience, the overall fun and entertainment of our kid guests really comes down to the parents and the group they are with. If you are active, your child will be active, and entertained as well. If they are used to the outdoors, or are used to being active, the ranch will be fun. A lot depends on the individual child as well, as each brings their own personality along with them.

The Valenzuela family, cattle ranching pioneers from the northeast of Sonora dating back to the early 20th century, has owned and operated the ranch continuously since the early 1950's, now three generations strong, as always protecting its wildlife and preserving its natural beauty. Having emigrated originally from Andalucia, southern Spain, in the mid 1600's, settling in northeast Sonora, the Valenzuelas' have a great understanding of this part of the world.

The new generation is American raised and educated, at one time having called Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, Phoenix and Barcelona, Spain home. They are both bilingual and bicultural,  having previously worked as marketing executives, business managers, in human resources, education and the law. Over the years, the Valenzuelas' have successfully managed the ranch through thick and thin, drought and abundance, helping make the ranch one of the most successful ranching enterprises in Sonora. The family's deep seated belief in living with nature and not at its expense has helped preserve this enchanting land much the same way as it has been for thousands of years. 

Our Team consists of a collection of family, old and new school vaqueros, and European [Germany, UK, France] wranglers, guides/hosts and personnel that, together, help make your stay with us a memorable, relaxing and thrilling experience.  We are a tight-knit group that strives to provide great hospitality  and top-notch service.

Offering stunning flora, fauna and insect diversity, full of wildflowers and life, riding or hiking the ranch at this time of year offers stunning desert scenery. Our green summer, and its 16 inches of rain, turns the ranch into a tropical desert. In the evening, after your daily adventures, enjoy the power and majesty of our famous Monsoon Storms. This is a wonderful time to visit.
