I traveled to los Banos from the Phoenix area recently. Spent 4 nights at the ranch. I wanted to work cows. I do have some prior experience and wasnt looking for the typical dude ranch experience. I got all that i wanted. If you want scenery, excellent horses, experienced cowboys to work with, good food, etc. this is the place for you. Even if you have little riding experience, the horses and the cowboys will take care of you. They will make you feel like you are a real cowboy.
While i am not a hiker, if i were, this would do the trick. You cant really describe the locale to do it justice. Dont worry about safety. The Valenzuela family has been in ranching for decades. They are prepared for anything and their primary goal is your safety, comfort, and making sure you have the time of your life.
