Big “Hello” from the “Girls” and I on Arkansas Mountain. We begin our goat hiking adventure at the ol’ Stage Stop cabin, our home. It’s a passion of mine to unfold the feeling of the 1859 gold rush from the journals and letters kept by these people; men, women and children.

You will meet Polly, Mimi, Polka and Coco, your hiking companions. They are gentle girl goats, intuitively aware of our younger hikers. They trek with us as we retrace the trail of the '59ers. You'll see old mine portals, the Cloud City school house, Cornish stone walls built to shore up hillsides, root cellars, blacksmith shop, and more. I'll point out holes where miners dynamited in their search for gold and multiple pine tree trunks growing over old mining tunnels. The land reveals many secrets of our past when you know its contours.

Then the celebrated goat race. Full disclosure upon arrival! Race entrance offering 25cents.

There is time for photos, breathing and storytelling. Our hike ends at 12:30 at the STAGE STOP, where we began. The STAGE STOP is the name of the blacksmith shop on the Ol' Crane Ranch.

Please consider 12:30 return time as a contract I have with each hiker, 5-90. Hikers 0-4 might need to be carried.

See private morning hikes for price.

A PM hike is an EXTRA private (1-5) $350+ $50. Above 5 hikers is $50/person + $100. A PM hike depends upon my availability.

The Stage Stops HERE! I've roamed Boulder County and beyond for over 50 years and now with GOATS! If generations count, both Jesse and my great grandparents traveled by wagon train to Colorado! I've written about old mining sites and cabins and located several while combing the miners' trails.
It's the goats that make the hike unique and fun. Mimi, Polka, Coco and Polly walk, run, EAT, and play around us. They are so accustom to being with people that they nudge you for pets and pictures. We've owned goats since 2015. I've mid-wifed, doctored, milked, groomed and bred goats until we are now a team.
My family spent much of our early years with our archeologist father learning to see where "man" changed the shape of the land.

We hike the old Arkansas Mountain mining trail 20 minutes west of Boulder. Starting at an 1860's Crane ranch, a little history, then we hit the trail with goats. Stops along the way reveal the lives of the '59ers; mines, school, tunnels and more. This is an exceptional opportunity to walk western history on sites unknown to the general public. Retracing their steps & telling their stories awakens a sense of being there.

What a fantastic experience! Valerie was such a great host and “tour guide.” The goats were absolutely wonderful and friendly! You can tell they live a very happy life with Valerie and her husband. I was expecting just a normal hike, but what we got was a whole experience. Be prepared to learn all about the surrounding land and the mines that come with it! We got to explore an old gold mine which was super cool! Definitely not an every day experience. The views from the trail are absolutely breathtaking, and if you live in the city, the fresh air is much needed and appreciated. At the end of this awesome trail hike you get to participate in the goat race which was so much fun. All in all, it is something you MUST do. The goats, the sweet dogs, the outdoors, and great company does the soul well.

We booked this experience literally the night before we went. We wanted to hike, but something different and a new experience. We got that with Valerie and her goats! Valerie is a wealth of knowledge and history… and her personality is infectious. She is bubbly and quirky and fun! The goats are so sweet and love all the pets they receive. We enjoyed loving on Special Agent Gibbs too! The hike gets slightly strenuous at times but overall easy. It’s worth it for the incredible views!!! She also took us to an old gold mine and we got to explore inside! We can now say we’ve been in a gold mine! Valerie gave us tips on other local spots to check out as well. Such a unique experience for our time in Boulder! Would gladly go back and highly recommend!

Took the hubby for his birthday and we loved it! Great fun. Great storytelling by Valerie. Really appreciated how Valerie throttled the pace of the hike too — that elevation will get ya. It’s more fun when you’re not sucking wind, know what I mean!

What a fun experience! The girls and pup were lots of fun, and Valerie had some great stories to share about the history of the area. Would definitely recommend this experience to others!

The goat hike was fantastic! Valerie is a great guide and storyteller; we learned a few things about Colorado history and a lot about goats! I’d do this again!

This was such an enchanting experience! Valerie was kind, knowledgeable, witty, and so pleasant! The goats were so docile and charming, as they nuzzle you for pets and treats and follow you alongside the excursion. The historical presence and Valerie’s knowledge of such is just as appealing as interacting with the goats! Overall, highly recommend this lovely experience!
