Welcome to Life on Greenhorn 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, we’re ready to help you unwind and create lifelong memories at the finest dude ranch in California.

Chuckhouse Restaurant & Saloon Opening Soon!

Our Chuckhouse Restaurant is opening soon on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays, from 5pm – 8pm

And the Saloon at Greenhorn will be ready to serve our signature cocktails, spirits, beer, wine, & more, on Fridays & Saturdays from 5pm – 9pm.

Greenhorn Ranch Webcam

We’re excited to share live views from our corral, our upper fishing pond, and the Greenhorn Saloon Deck.

Just imagine yourself mounting your horse for an exciting ride through the Sierras, practicing your fly-rod casts at the edge of the pond, and enjoying a cool beverage in the afternoon shade of the trees just outside the Saloon.

We can’t wait for you to see these views in person!

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.

Experience Greenhorn

The staff is attentive, helpful and encouraging, so trying new things is easy and fun.

The modern sport of axe throwing involves a competitor throwing an axe at a target, attempting to hit the bullseye as near as possible and of course safety is always the number one priority;)

In 1775 brave Americans fought against oppression and Tyranny. Against unbelievable odds these brave men triumphed and on July 4, 1776 the Continental Congress declared it’s independence from Britain and the United States of America was born. If not for these brave men and their sacrifices we would not be here today. Let’s not forget what they fought for; Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
May you all have a safe, healthy, and Happy 4th of July.
