Það sem verður gert

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.

First, you’ll 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 and trail stops for breathing and storytelling. Our hike ends at the STAGE STOP, where we began. The STAGE STOP was named for the blacksmith shop located on our property, the Ol' Crane Ranch.

A review: "The hike with Valerie and her goats was the highlight of our trip. . . [H]er stories offered everything to experience the real beauty and history of Colorado."

If price is prohibitive, suggest another.

If this hike is too expensive, please email and let's settle on an affordable price .

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.

Staðsetning

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.

It was a really fun time! Very educational, the goats were tons of fun, views were amazing, and there was a cool old abandoned gold mine we got to explore a bit as well, would recommend!

This experience was truly one of a kind! Completely worth it. The goats walk along with you as you hike, have beautiful views, and learn about some niche history. The goat race at the end was so fun so bring some quarters!!

If you are in the area and thinking about doing this - definitely sign up. Our family of four went (with kiddos who are 12 and 10). We loved hearing the history of the area, seeing the incredible views, hiking, and interacting with the girls. Valerie is knowledgeable and engaging, and our entire group loved this experience.

Go meet the goats and this wonderful hostess. You’ll love the beautiful scenery, the history, and the new friends that you will meet. Valerie is one of the best storytellers I’ve met and so very personable to each guest. Oh and the goats are great guides. Polka (the goat) dot was my favorite. Good times for sure.
