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.
We have closed for 2020
2020 has been quite a year! We had a full house from the first day of opening amid COVID until we ran into the North Complex Wildfire in early August. The Ranch has not sustained any damage from the fire, and we seem to be out of harm’s way for the near future.
The smoke from the fire and the eventual 2.5-week evacuation order caused us to shut down all operations. We received word in early September that we could reopen, but the smoke was nearly unbearable. Due to that, and the fact that we are hit with closures to any recreating in the forest right now, we’ve made the difficult decision to close the Ranch for the remainder of the 2020 season.
Thank you for your continued love and support. We will post periodic updates, and also send them by email to our subscribers. If you have a reservation for 2020, and have not yet been contacted, please give us a call at (530) 283-0930 so we can rebook your visit for 2021.
We’re already booking for 2021, and we anticipate a busy season, so please book your stay soon.
With much warmth and appreciation and looking forward to an excellent 2021,
— Jill Rivoli, General Manager
