Coffee Creek Guest Ranch in Northern
California is located 8 miles from Trinity Lake along Coffee
Creek. This majestic setting is surrounded by National Forest
and the Trinity Alps wilderness area. Here you will experience
a great family ranch vacation with plenty of beautiful country
and mountain and stream activities including horseback riding,
fishing, swimming, hiking and hunting.
Horseback Riding: Coffee Creek has
every imaginable Dude Ranch amenity, with the most popular
activity still being Horseback Riding. The ranch breeds its
own AQHA and Paints. Typically, two rides a day are scheduled,
and rides are divided by ability level. Private lessons can
also be scheduled. Breakfast rides are the most popular, with
the all-day "wilderness ride" to a lake the most
spectacular! Overnight pack trips are also offered. The ranch
has access to 833 miles of trails that lead through some
breath taking scenery. The waterfall and Sugar Pine Lake rides
are well worth the trip with picture-postcard views of the
Trinity Alps Wilderness area.
Family Fun Activities: When you
aren't out exploring the mountain hiking trails of the Trinity
Alps, there's plenty to do back at the ranch. Swim in the
heated pool, soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi spa under the stars,
or work out in the exercise room. Badminton, volleyball,
horseshoes, table tennis, pedal boating, or basketball await
your playful endeavors. Guests can test their skills at the
rifle and archery range. Hiking trips can be planned, and
mountain bike trails parallel the wilderness area. Supervised
summer youth programs are specially designed by age groups.
The rest of the week is sprinkled with bingo, square and line
dancing, Karaoke, and a talent show. Gold panning will keep
you entertained and you might find a treasure.
