Peace and Solitude

There are dozens of lakes and ponds on the property. Canoe, birdwatch, hike, or just sit in the gazebo, watch the dragonflies, and find inspiration in the solitude away from the hustle and bustle. Wintertime visits offer the beauty of pristine snow. 

Wildlife abounds, with deer, bears, bats, bald eagles, river otters, kingfishers, herons, Canadian geese, mallard and wood ducks, turtles, and dragonflies. 

Little Boulder Creek runs for nearly a mile through the ranch, dropping about 600 feet along the way. Hiking along this boulder-strewn creek is challenging, but rewards you with an ever-changing sequence of natural ponds and waterfalls. 

Away from the Ranch

Nearby activities include winery tours, horseback riding, bicycling, hunting, hiking, backpacking, and sailing or houseboating on Trinity Lake. 

Restaurants and Groceries: Trinity Center and Coffee Creek each have small grocery stores and a few small restaurants. Grocery, natural food, and drug stores, along with numerous restaurants and a movie theater, are in Weaverville, about a 45-minute drive. For an additional fee, groceries can be stocked and ready for your arrival.
