We took a trail ride at Ghost Ranch...a relatively new attraction - what a fantastic way to "be" in the same places as Georgia O'Keeffe painted some of her most iconic paintings! The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and shared lots of stories during the ride. We saw many sites that you can't otherwise view!... More

Obviously the beauty of the surrounding geological formations. We visited on a Sunday, arriving at the visitor center we were excited to arrive and learn what Ghost Ranch had to offer. The girl at the desk, was disturbed by our arrival. The fee is $3 a person, that is a bargain. The money goes in a donation like box, self... More

I owe my visit to this incredible place to my friend Jay, who said that I must visit Ghost Ranch while in Santa Fe. Boy, was he right. I searched the Internet and found that daily horse back rides are offered, so I called and reserved a spot for 10 a.m. Saturday morning. I left my hotel near The Plaza... More

This could be a great experience but it is run by a church group and they don't know anything about customer service. The museum was very good! Check in was a loooong wait for no reason. RV park was tight - we were the only ones there - thank goodness. Road in was dusty and washboards. Beautiful hike up to... More

A great place to stay if you want to get away from everyday life, like to hike and don't mind roughing it. I stayed at the ranch for 2 nights with my adult daughters. No tv, no wi-fi, no vending machines. First night was hard for them. The next morning we hiked to the top of a mountain! The hike... More

The drive up from Santa Fe is easy. Take 285 through Espanola, then continue on 84 when 285 splits away, and ghost ranch is about 12 miles past Abiquiu. Entrance is well signed. We did a guided tour, which started with a 10 minute video. Then we mounted into a van, which took us to four stops, at three of... More

The drive to Ghost Ranch from the southeast is a real gem, with the colors of the buttes and mesas and the layering of the exposed mountains. You pass Abiquiu dam and lake as well, which adds to the diversity of the area. The Ranch is interesting to browse the main visitor center, but the GEM was the hike to... More
