If you are up for it, they will be happy to make arrangements for your own rodeo that you can participate in.

During the autumn there are two 4 night opportunities to help move cattle to fresh grazing. Enjoy the Old West as you ride the range while herding cattle through miles and miles of beautiful mountains to their seasonal grazing grounds.

The ranch provide hearty meals served out in the mountains and experience the lore of the West. It’s a rustic setting with the unbeatable comfort with some spectacular vistas amongst friendly people on a real cattle drive.

These cattle drives and round ups take place on the Griffin Plateau in the heart of the Escalante Mountains.This particular plateau is the summer range for several hundred head of Rockin’ R cattle. It is a remarkable example of unspoilt Rocky Mountain wilderness.

The alternative activities are hiking in the scenic beauty of nearby Antimony Canyon where ranch guides will teach you about the local plants and rock formations. In the stream running through the canyon you can cool off on a hot summer's day.

Fishing is in streams and a lake surrounded by breathtaking vistas. Depending on the type of fishing you prefer, there is nothing more relaxing than a day near the water in Southern Utah. You can purchase a “day” fishing license locally. Bring your own fishing gear, or rent one of their fishing rods.

If you hear a Western band tuning up, get in line! No need for a partner and no worries about what you’re wearing: There’s nothing like the foot stompin’ fun of line dancing in their great room.

For an additional fee, you may join them for some clay pigeon shooting. No prior experience is necessary. There are safe and knowledgeable staff who will show you how to have a rootin’ and shootin’ good time.
