Welcome to Life on the Ranch

Greenhorn Ranch is a premier guest ranch in Northern California’s Lost Sierra. Established in 1962, we’ve built our reputation on providing refined comforts and relaxed adventures in a spectacular natural setting. As a long-time member of the Dude Ranch Association, we take pride in serving you with warm, welcoming Western hospitality. While we offer traditional ranch pleasures, such as horseback trail rides guided by experienced wranglers, riding lessons, fishing, and fishing instruction, we also offer you a variety of other contemporary indulgences. Some of our unique activities include: skeet shooting, electric mountain biking, archery, yoga and whiskey tastings. With 600 acres and access to over 500,000 acres of public lands for riding and exploring, Greenhorn Ranch is ready to help you unwind and create lifelong memories.

COVID 19 Safety at Greenhorn Ranch

At the Greenhorn Ranch we take the heath and safety of Cowboys, Cowgirls and Buckaroos very seriously. Although the Greenhorn Ranch is naturally socially distanced by our glorious 600 acres, we have implemented new policies and procedures exceeding current CDC Guidelines.

“Debbe Dunning’s Dude Ranch Roundup” Visits Greenhorn Ranch

We’re pleased as punch to be featured on season 3 of “Debbe Dunning’s Dude Ranch Roundup.”

This season, Debbe and her team are visiting dude ranches from California to Montana, and everywhere in between. We’re excited to share our luxurious guest ranch experience with her, and extend our most gracious Greenhorn Ranch welcome!

We invite you to enjoy a sneak peek at season 3, and be sure you catch her visit to Greenhorn Ranch this season!

Experience Greenhorn

Beautiful location! Excellent, friendly staff, limitless trail rides for all levels and plenty of fun activities for adults and kids. … A wonderful place to have fun with family and friends-and make new friends too!

Cabin Rules; make memories, Go horseback riding, take a nap, count the stars, go fishing, sit by the fire, take long walks, breathe fresh air, listen to the birds, read a book, & be grateful. It’s the Greenhorn way.🖤
