Trailrides

Trail Rides with the MTM Ranch crew is are rich in wildlife and history. Every day it is not uncommon to see herds of Arizona Mule Deer, Bobcat, Mountain Lions, Coyotes and the Diamondback Rattler. For bird enthusiasts our trail rides are always well viewed from the sky by the Mexican Turkey Buzzards, Red Tail and Harris Hawk, Tanigers, Kestrel and endless Finch and Hummingbird species as well as occasional Bald Eagle Sightings. Birds are every where!

This is a great entry level ride for those whom maybe have never ridden. This is the ride we highly recommend for our 8 and 9 year old guestS.

This ride specifically goes through an amazing stand of mature Saguaro.

NINTEY MINUTE OCOTILLO HILL RIDE:


The First thing on this ride is to traverse Mountain Lion Mountain up to saddle for the best view of Tonto National Forest. Time for Photos! Nothing could be prettier than a Sunset from the mountain and ascending into the beautiful foothills the of Northern portion of our ranch. You may see a Rattler, Coyote, Mule Deer, Mountain Lion or even a Hawk.

TWO HOUR VAQUERO RIDE:


Our most popular ride that literally goes on just about every trail on our ranch is a bold and fast paced look at pristine Sonoran Desert Mountains. Untouched by motor traffic, our entire trail system looks just as it did 400 years ago. There are some 400 year old Saguaro that could have told the stories of the Hohokam and the Native Apache that once lived and hunted this land.
