The T Cross Ranch, located in the greater Yellowstone area, has been providing guests with an unforgettable all-inclusive experience for close to 100 years. Comfortable cabins are furnished with rustic elegance. Fabulous meals featuring made-from-scratch breads and organic ranch-raised beef satisfy every appetite. The surrounding country is unforgettable, with the Absaroka mountain peaks soaring to over 13,000 feet around the ranch. This land has been carved naturally by water, wind, and glaciers. Horseback is the only way to see this pristine country. With a string of over 60 horses, there’s the perfect mount for every guest. Our wranglers are experienced cowboys with literally thousands of miles on horseback under their belts. This is western riding in its purest form, the way it originated, the way few people experience it.

My wife and I tripped over this hidden gem outside Jackson as we were looking for a ranch/horseback experience. Triangle C was a delight from the moment we checked in, the staff were super friendly and made sure that we got settled into our cabin ok. The cabins are very comfortable, clean and the bedding was super comfortable. The meals here were better than you will find at most facilities in the Jackson area, each meal was prepared with the best care and attention to detail...the chef prepares every meal from scratch and even the most picky "foodie" will be hard pressed to find fault in these superb meals. Our tour guides (Randall, Caleb and Brandy) were in tune with each guest and constantly offering small tips so even the most amateur rider (me) could improve and most importantly enjoy their experience. (Thanks for the horse swimming demonstration Brandy) All in all, Chris Cox and his family have done a fine job of bringing the Triangle C Ranch back to life, Chris and his family were constantly present at the ranch to make sure everything was running up to spec and his children were a real joy to meet, just great kids. I am sure we will be back again in the future. Thank you to the Triangle C crew for your efforts, your hard work shows and the customer service is much appreciated.

We went to the ranch for the first time with 3 generations. Mark & Gretchen have a wonderful policy that 1 grandparent was free with 3 generations - this made my mother very happy (she even got on a horse). My 85 year old Dad rode 5 out of 6 days.... The entire staff was wonderful. The fishing was fabulous. The riding lessons in the ring were so much fun and very helpful regardless of your level - look, if you are a very experienced rider looking to cantor all day etc then you should not go to a dude ranch. This is mainly trail riding and some fun in the ring. The mini rodeo at the ranch was a blast and the one in town was tons of fun. The food was quite good and plentiful - if you want gourmet city food - again your expectations need to switch to ranch food - it is hearty and tasty, but this is a casual ranch both in terms of accommodations and feel - it is a welcome respite from city life, so you shouldn't expect the trapping of the big city. You are here to experience nature and simple pleasures! Dinner is family style and you meet the other guests - who were really nice people. We came away with some new friends. The location is wonderful - inside a National Forest - you feel like you are in nature. We intend to return!!!!

2015 was my third consecutive visit to the T Cross and I'm already making plans for a 2016 visit. Mark and Gretchen have created a wonderful place to escape from it all. Jay (the chef) makes the best meals, always something I enjoy. They bend over backwards to accommodate dietary restrictions. I rank my riding ability as moderate and I'm always happy with the horse I'm assigned. I've seen rank beginners and super-advanced riders at the T Cross and they're happy as well. If you want a particular type of ride (a certain trail, faster/more advanced riding, for example), all you need to do is ask the cowboys or Mark. You may not get your wish on the next ride, but you *will* get your ideal ride. After the first morning or so, the cowboys are better able to judge what would be the ideal makeup for each riding group. They don't want the groups so large they're unmanageable. They also don't want rank beginners grouped with more advanced riders. You're not forced to ride; if you're a fisherman there's great fishing on Horse Creek. Accommondations are spotless. This year I brought my niece (rather than travelling alone) so we were in one of the 2-bedroom cabins. My bedroom had a large fireplace and my niece's had a potbellied stove. That worked out great because I could have the cold room I like for sleeping and she had a nice cozy one. Cabins do have indoor plumbing and electricity, but if you want plush carpets, bathrobes, and total pampering you might not be happy here. I've read other reviews where the traveller had complaints. My reaction to those reviews is that the person probably sat and fussed and didn't say anything. As I mentioned with the riding, all you need to do is ask somebody if you need or want something and the staff will do everything within their power to get you what you want. This ranch is great for families as well as singles/couples. There's a weekly square dance in Dubois one night, and a rodeo another night. Those are fun, but I also enjoy just sitting on my porch (or inside, after it gets too cold) and reading a book.

My husband and our three boys always wanted to venture out west and have a real dude ranch experience. We are from the Northeast and wanted a break from school, sports and our hectic schedule. I did a lot of research on dude ranches and determined I wanted to be in Wyoming and during August before our sons returned to school. I discovered T Cross from their website. Now, we have many friends that have stayed at ranches all over the west but most notably in Wyoming and Montana. All reported that their vacations were the "best they had every had", and the dude ranch experience is "simply amazing." We decided that we wanted to try a different ranch and we deemed T Cross to be our favorite for several reasons. It was close to Jackson Hole which we wanted to visit anyway during our trip. It was accessible but just enough off the beat and path -- many of these ranches, particularly near JH are close to or just off the main roads. We also wanted a smaller ranch for a more personalized ranch experience. All I can say is the T Cross DELIVERED! From the moment you enter the gates, the scenery is breathtaking. You pass the horses as you drive in which got our boys just so excited! We were greeted by the staff and they could not have been more warm and welcoming -- Gretchen and Mark make you feel like you are at home. We were brought to our wonderful cabin which was perfect for our family and so close to horses! The food was delicious and lovingly prepared, served in the dining area in the guest lodge with all the other guests. I have to note that the other guests at the ranch during our week made our experience just as special -- everyone was so friendly and warm hearted. Many were return guests which is a testament to the ranch itself. One of the most memorable experiences for us was our pack trip led by Michael into the heart of Wyoming wilderness. It took hours on horseback to reach our beautiful destination and every minute from start to finish was special and unique. My boys still talk about Michael and how much fun they had. It brought our family together in a way I can never describe in words. I read the previous review with a bit of dismay. The individual states the horses were mistreated and food was less than gourmet. If you are looking for a Ritz Carlton, then go to one. All the staff T Cross had nothing but love for those horses and did everything in their power to ensure their care and safety. The food is wonderful, period. My impression is that you go to a Dude Ranch to be on a Dude Ranch. And T Cross is all that it promises and more. We may not be able to go back this year. But we WILL RETURN. We left part of our hearts there. Thank you T Cross for making lasting memories for my family. xo

We stayed her summer 2015. Scheduled one week but left early. The riding, though advertised as "beginner to advanced" is not riding at all, it's sitting. Walk only. Up the mountain and then down the mountain, every day. Horses had cracked hoofs, some were lame. None were very happy to be going out on the trails. Half of the horses were worked every day, several times a day, for a week, in the heat and up and down those slopes. Then given a week off, and the other half (over)worked in the same way. All so that the "wranglers" don't have to change the girth holes on the saddles. Shame on them. Food advertised as "gourmet". That's a joke. Coolwhip topping, spaghetti and tomato sauce, coolaid, iceberg lettuce, corn syrup instead of maple syrup .... Tables were full of processed junk at every meal. Cabins dark, window screens didn't even come close to fitting and full of holes, so cabins full of mosquitoes. Mattresses all very soft and lumpy, with no box spring underneath, just squeaky, old springs. I had a sore back every single morning. The "kids program" simply does not exist. No pool for the heat, jacuzzi water disgusting, and the landscape was a bit depressing, given that at least half of the forest was dead. The clientele all seemed happy though ... Mostly the southern, gun totting, wildlife shooting, not too sporty kind that is happy sitting on the back of a mistreated horse.

No matter what they are, your expectations will undoubtedly be exceeded at the T Cross Ranch. This place is truly special! The setting of the ranch is perfect whether you like to ride horses or not. There are a tremendous amount of activities to do that will keep you busy or you can just enjoy the peace and serenity received from just taking in all the awesome views. If you are into horses then this is the place to come. We rode every day and each trail ride was unique and awe inspiring. The terrain and ecology was different in all four directions, giving you a once in a lifetime experience each day. In addition, the staff was exceptional! They met our every need and were able to accommodate our family of five (two teenagers and a nine year old) very well. Each ranch hand was patient and obviously experienced dealing with horses and nervous young children. Food was fabulous and more than enough to fill you up at each meal. (Thanks to Chef Jay.) We researched over two dozen ranches and in our opinion Gretchen and Mark have outdone them all.

I visited Cross again for the 15th consecutive summer. On driving in I am always impressed by the natural beauty of the valley, Horse Creek running the entire length of the ranch, backed up by the towering ridges on the East and West sides. What one sees from start to finish of a trip is the overall quality of T Cross: the location, the accommodations(rustic to be sure but still quality), the staff, the food, the horses and tack. Even the remoteness of the ranch lends itself to the overall quality of the visit, The quiet, the murmuring of the creek, the stars with little or no man-made light are a really good light show. From Orientation on Monday morning to the all-day ride on Friday the wranglers(cowboys) are your constant guides and companions. They are aware of how guest and horse are adjusting to one another(will even change mounts when necessary), ever ready to make needed equipment adjustments to insure comfort and safety. The trail rides into the surrounding National Forests are truly breathtaking. Elevation changes from the ranch altitude of 7800 ft to as high as 9300 ft guarantees scenic vistas that live up to the billing of the best in Western scenery. My real reason for visiting T Cross is the fishing in Horse Creek. I am a novice fly-fisherman and have fished over a lot of the U.S. I have never fished anywhere that compares with T Cross. This is fishing as one dreams it should be. The creek is accessible throughout its' length on the ranch. Wade fishing is the usual approach, but neoprene socks help with the coolness of the water. Native Brook trout (8-12") are plentiful. The management stocks rainbows up to 20" and Yellowstone Cut-throats up to 16". There are also Brown trout and Mountain Whitefish in the creek Almost any good Western assortment of flies(Parachute Adams, Royal Wulff, Humpies, hoppers) will work. I have not intentionally left out the youngsters who visit T Cross. I enjoy each summer seeing them arrive on Sunday and from the start they complain about no Cell, no TV, no pool and worst of all, no friends. The change that occurs between Sunday evening and dinner on Monday is almost a miracle in itself. They have ridden a horse, met the cowboys and most important, have made new friends. All in all, T Cross is an outstanding venue Management and staff go the extra mile to insure every guest is happy with their choice of T Cross as their vacation spot.

Our stay at the T Cross exceeded all of our expectations. Our family of 5 (3 daughters, ages 15, 13 and 10) had an amazing experience. Even my husband, who is not a real horseback rider, was pleasantly surprised at how much he enjoyed the experience. The scenery is breathtaking, and it is amazing to be down at the ranch one day looking up at a mountaintop, and then to be on that mountaintop looking down at the ranch the next! The horses were incredibly reliable and sure-footed, and took wonderful care of us. The wranglers did an excellent job matching our abilities to our horses (and would have reassigned us in an instant if we had been dissatisfied). Although I've never visited another Dude Ranch, I think what sets the T Cross apart is its small size and the fact that the owners, Gretchen and Mark, really make their guests feel like part of the family. They also hire excellent staff, who made every ride and experience an absolute pleasure. The ranch also seems to attract very down-to-earth guests, and we so enjoyed meeting and spending time with the other guests there! My daughters and I rode every chance we got (my husband only took off one half day to fish), but for those who were more interested in other activities such as fishing, hiking or shooting, there were plenty of opportunities. Gretchen and Mark also make sure to cater to any special requests. In addition to the activities at the ranch, we had a couple of fun evenings in Dubois at the square dance and watching a real rodeo! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and can't wait to return someday!

Call it a "Dude" ranch if you want...this is the real thing! Real horses, real cowboys, real adventure! The owners, Gretchen and Mark Cardall are the most gracious of hosts. I am proud to call them my friends. Don't expect the Hilton, but the little cabin I had was clean and comfortable. Every staff member treats you like family. The food prepared by Chef Jay is wonderful. He feeds you three square a day, and I looked forward to each meal.The Wranglers are amazing as well, especially Rustin. They match you with the perfect horse for your ability. These horses are not "dead heads"..My horse, Charlie was very responsive and knew his job well. Kept me safe for five days in some of the most beautiful country I've ever seen. I made friends that will remain my friends for the rest of my life! I will definitely plan another stay here!

T Cross Ranch, an historical dude ranch, tucked back in seclusion. Operated by a true cowboy family. Rustic in appearence, and in some ammenities. Freindly, knowledgable, and an experience of true western history. Wrangled by cowboys and cowgirls that know horses and people. If you are seeking a dude ranch that offers true west tradition, not a ranch ran by part time wanna be's, T Cross is for you. And this ranch is one of very few that meet these criteria. Thank you T Cross Ranch
