מה נעשה

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 1-25cents.

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 0-3 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 $75/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.

איפה נהיה?

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.

This tour is so much fun! The goats are adorable and the storytelling is fun. Valerie is very nice, knowledgeable about the area, and fun to talk to. The goat race at the end was fun and it was awesome to get to pet the goats at every stop. Would definitely recommend!!

Hiking with Valerie and her goats was a great ending to our CU Parents Weekend. Hearing about the history of the Ranch and the Old West from Valerie put a meaningful touch to the hike. Great views, cool sites and the darling goats made this a great and unique way to enjoy some family time. Thanks Valerie.
