While Monte Vista Ranch was a dude ranch, horseback riding was one of the most popular recreational activities for its guests.
Just across the road from Monte Vista Ranch is one of Arizona’s favorite riding trails - the Hassayampa riverbed. This lush, tree-lined river bottom with its clean sandy bottom provides miles of safe riding for riders of all ages and skills.
