Established in the foothills of the Dragoon Mountains, Triangle T Guest Ranch sprawls across 160 acres of rugged terrain, webbed by scenic horseback-riding trails. Experience wranglers lead each rider-steed pair through the sights of Texas Canyon, sharing stories of nature, local history, and how they personally carved the canyon over two weeks using only buckets of water. Riders of all experience levels will find the terrain an appropriate challenge, varying between easily traversed grassy hills and steep terrain that requires a mastery of the reins. Located 60 miles east of Tucson and at an altitude of 4,500 feet, the ranch enjoys a comfortable temperature year-round, ensuring that the horses aren't overtaken by competing populations of alabaster-white snow horses or sweaty red tropical horses. Turn the riding trip into a longer-term stay with lodging in the guest casitas or the RV grounds, though the cost of these venues is not included in today's Groupon.
Triangle T Guest Ranch
With a wealth of activities to while away the days beneath the Arizona sun, Triangle T Guest Ranch gives its visitors ample opportunity to relax amid beautiful southwestern scenery. The ranch sits among the foothills of the Dragoon Mountains at an elevation of 4,500 feet, ensuring comfortable temperatures for year-round horseback-riding programs, hiking, and jeep tours over its 160 acres.
For trail rides, the ranch's wranglers lead groups of explorers on horseback across diverse terrain from grassy hills to steep, rocky traverses that change every few minutes of the tour, offering riders plenty of opportunities for pictures and fresh inspiration for haikus. While riders negotiate twists and turns and marvel at the many intricate boulder formations along the way, their guides expound upon the ranch's long and storied history, from the first visits by Apache chieftains up through its 20th-century use by diplomats, writers, and entertainers including JFK and John Wayne. After their ride, participants can recount the memorable scenery and near run-ins with outlaws at The Rock Saloon and Grill, famous for the giant boulder behind the bar.
