Fall Activities

The Highlights

  1. 1. Trail Rides at The Ranch

    This summer, horses are returning to Carmel Valley Ranch! Come on up to the Corral, meet the herd, go for a trail ride, or take a leisurely walk on up to the Corral and visit the horses and our friendly Trail Guides. We'll be offering Pony Rides for the little ones, and trail rides start at $125 per person - reserve your spot today!

    For the serious horse enthusiast also offer Western Horsemanship (and horsewomanship!) lessons throughout the year. See this link for more info.


    (120 minutes; $35 Adults, $25 Ages 12 & under; Under 12 with adult)

    Tiny treasures are hidden all around The Ranch, waiting for you to find them. Whether you’re new to geocaching—the worldwide high-tech treasure hunt—or an old pro, you’ll love using our specially programmed GPS devices and clever clues to find caches full of trinkets placed strategically around our 500-acre property. Fun for explorers young and old! Recommended for ages 7 & up.

  3. 3. Ranch Hands Kids Camp, keeping it fresh

    One of our favorite activities is making a comeback with new and exciting themes and more of what you love the most – golf and tennis lessons, swimming, hiking, and specialized activities and crafts. Our Ranch Hands will film a movie during film week, and create upcycled art during our Goin’ Green Week, and much more!

  4. 4. The Annual Do-It-Yourself Holiday Gift Faire

    (1:00p-4:00p; The Oak Room; $35 adults, $25 ages 12 & under; Offered Black Friday November 28th – open to the public!)

    Join us for this Day-After-Thanksgiving, incredibly interactive gift-making tradition! Enjoy refreshments, music, and fun. Create a beautiful holiday wreath with Carol from Creekside Farms, or a custom scent or lip balm with Beekeeper John Russo. Make a potpourri sachet from lavender and other herbs grown on property. We will be rolling beeswax candles, creating beautiful beaded earrings and bracelets, and making personalized holiday ornaments and table decorations, and much more!
