7 Reasons to Visit Greenhorn Ranch This Fall


The tan lines are fading and you’re mind has shifted to daydreaming of Fall leaves, comfy

sweaters, and gearing up for the holidays ahead. With all the Summer fun that Greenhorn

Ranch offers, Fall is one of our favorite seasons here on the ranch. The crisp mountain air and

the gorgeous colors of the trees makes Greenhorn Ranch the perfect place to unwind and relax

on your Fall getaway. Here are 7 reasons to visit Greenhorn Ranch this Fall.

  1. the activities

While the horses have been relocated for the upcoming Winter, there are still plenty of activities to enjoy on the ranch. Mountain biking on our miles and miles of trails, fly fishing in our ponds, and endless lawn games to keep the kiddos entertained while you enjoy a nice beverage on the deck are just a few of the activities you can expect this fall.*


2. Our BBQ Pit Master

Being a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Jeremy “Drew” West is the unsung hero of the ranch. After growing up in the South, Drew has an incredible talent for real, authentic barbecue that has Greenhorns salivating for their next meal. One of his favorite ranch dishes is ropo viejo tacos - a blend of his Cuban-influenced culinary roots and the West Coast cuisine he caters to daily.
