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.

Каде ќе бидете

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.

I came to Boulder to visit my two daughters. This was a way for us to spend some quality active time together. We totally enjoyed ourselves and the pictures will remind us of this lovely day. Valerie is a special soul and the goats are amazing. Strongly recommend !!

It’s a great way to experience the mountain, fun walk uphill with 4 goats. My three kids loved the experience. Ages 9,7,5. I would highly recommend.

I gifted this experience to my partner for his birthday and it could not have been a better gift. Valerie is incredibly knowledgable about... almost everything actually and we learned so much. On top of all of the knowledge shared, the location is beautiful and the goats were delightful. If you love history, nature, and goats don’t hesitate to book this experience!

We brought our 17 month old and carried her in our baby carrier on our back. She did great and enjoyed the goats! I was nervous since I'm out of shape and from a lower elevation, but I had no problem with the climb and Valerie stopped quite a few times to tell stories and we could catch our breath. A unique experience and beautiful views I would recommend for all!

What a wonderful and fun experience! I highly recommend it. The goats were charming companions for our hike, and Valerie was so knowledgable about the history of the area.

Let me start by saying that we had a really fun day on the mountain with Valerie and her goats. There were some breathtaking views, we loved our tour mates, and the goats were so much fun. Truly an experience to remember. However, for the sake of others who might be considering this adventure, I think it’s important to denote a few places where improvements could be made and/or expectations were “off” from what was communicated. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Beyond the altitude, this is *not* a beginner’s hike. There is a significant portion of the hike that involves climbing, which is not stated anywhere in the materials. I would call this an intermediate hike, and absolutely not for anyone with health or physical issues. There was also no point in which we were asked if anyone had physical limitations, leading me to believe there weren't different routes to choose based on the comfort level of the group. Once the introduction was complete (see below), we just set off—and that was it. DURATION: While it’s stated that the excursion will take 2-2.5 hours, I don’t see anywhere in the materials where the the actual distance of the hike described. Based on my activity tracker, I believe it’s approximately a 3-mile trek (possibly more)—with a lot of uphill climbing. And, despite all in our group (ages: mid-’20s to late-’50s) being in good physical condition we all found it to be challenging and strenuous at times. This is NOT a leisure hike or something easily done by anyone with joint/back or other health issues. One of the people on our hike struggled, and had to sit down a few times to catch their breath. There were few natural “breaks” built into the hike so guests really had to listen to their bodies and demand to stop if needed. It also states that “Hiking poles” are available equipment, although we were never offered these, as I found myself wished I’d paid a pair during a few of the more steep inclines. HYDRATION: The day we hiked was hot (90-degrees+ Fahrenheit). While a water bottle was listed as an item to bring (which we did), the host did not check our water supply before setting off on the excursion, nor did she appear to have any extra sources of water on her person or stashed along the trail. The other family we were with had one large Nalgene bottle between 3 adults. As noted, this was a strenuous hike, which they clearly weren’t expecting or they would’ve brought additional water. While I absolutely believe in personal responsibility, I also believe the host should double-check we have all the proper provisions based on the conditions. Additionally, it states that “NON-COMMERCIAL Water bottles (FILLED W/ MNT. WELL WATER)” will be included with the hike, at no point was water discussed nor offered—not even after returning back to the starting point when the temperatures had climbed significantly and we’d all depleted the water we brought along. INTRODUCTION: When we arrived and sat down at the outdoor table, the host just started talking. There was zero context about the land, the hike, why we were there, or what we were about to see/experience. Host attempted to use some rocks & props on the table to describe the “Wild West”, but we were all sort of looking around trying to figure out what was happening. There is no doubt that Val is a steward of the land and gifted storyteller, but many people don’t come there with much historical perspective or context. I believe this would have gone a long way toward making people feel welcome, at ease and connected the experience. SNACKS: No snacks or any sort of “extras” were offered on this tour. For $50, it would seem a small bag of trail mix or granola bar would’ve provided a nice touch. GUIDING: Val led for most of the 2.5-hour hike and seemed to have little interest in ensuring that everyone in the group heard the stories she was sharing (which were all well-researched and interesting). She’s also in fabulous shape and kept a quick pace, while others of us wanted to enjoy a bit more leisurely walk, take photos, visit with the goats, etc. While I understand it’s difficult to tell stories and hike, perhaps there’s a way to do this that ensures everyone feels included or, at minimum, doesn’t feel like they’re missing out. At one point I was chastised for asking which path to take. Apparently she thought I didn’t know my directions, when in actuality she’d shared these directions with the others who were walking closest to her, while I was just a bit further back and hadn’t heard her. To reiterate, I would not hesitate to go on this excursion again, but feel some of the issues denoted above could have been avoided if expectations had been properly set in advance. I believe it’s important that all potential guests are aware of potential challenges or limitations before they set off on this awesome (yet challenging) hike.
