Big “Hello” from the “Girls” and I on Arkansas Mountain. We begin our goat hiking adventure at the ol’ Stage Stop cabin, our home. It’s a passion of mine to unfold the feeling of the 1859 gold rush from the journals and letters kept by these people; men, women and children.

First, you’ll meet Polly, Mimi, Polka and Coco, your hiking companions. They are gentle girl goats, intuitively aware of our younger hikers. They trek with us as we retrace the trail of the '59ers. You'll see old mine portals, the Cloud City school house, Cornish stone walls built to shore up hillsides, root cellars, blacksmith shop, and more. I'll point out holes where miners dynamited in their search for gold and multiple pine tree trunks growing over old mining tunnels. The land reveals many secrets of our past when you know its contours.

Then the celebrated goat race. Full disclosure upon arrival! Race entrance offering 25cents.

There is time for photos and trail stops for breathing and storytelling. Our hike ends at the STAGE STOP, where we began. The STAGE STOP was named for the blacksmith shop located on our property, the Ol' Crane Ranch.

A review: "The hike with Valerie and her goats was the highlight of our trip. . . [H]er stories offered everything to experience the real beauty and history of Colorado."

If price is prohibitive, suggest another.

ELDERS & OTHERS: Reserve a day for a WALK with goats.

Masks are required. 4 people limit or family.

The Stage Stops HERE! I've roamed Boulder County and beyond for over 50 years and now with GOATS! If generations count, both Jesse and my great grandparents traveled by wagon train to Colorado! I've written about old mining sites and brothels and located several while combing the miners' trails.
It's the goats that make the hike unique and fun. Mimi, Polka, Coco and Polly walk, run, EAT, and play around us. They are so accustom to being with two-leggeds (people) that they nudge you for pets and pictures. We've owned goats since 2015. I've mid-wifed, doctored, milked, groomed (hooves included) and bred goats until we are now a te

Destinations

We hike the old Arkansas Mountain mining trail 20 minutes west of Boulder. Starting at an 1860's Crane ranch, a little history, then we hit the trail with goats. Stops along the way reveal the lives of the '59ers; mines, school, tunnels and more. This is an exceptional opportunity to walk western history on sites unknown to the general public. Retracing their steps & telling their stories awakens a sense of being there.

Valerie and her goats are the greatest hosts! We learned so much about the sometimes brutal history of the region. Great to see historical remains from the mining days. The goats were so fun to watch and interact with. Highly recommend this excursion!

Absolutely beautiful views along the hike and the goats were the absolute sweetest and most fun creatures. Valerie was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the area and was a wonderfully immersive story teller. My husband and I had an absolute blast!

This really is a once in a lifetime experience. To hear history from a local, and see it firsthand is amazing! Add in some goofy goats and you have a 10/10 hike! My mother in law has some health issues and still made it on this hike- so it is doable for most people.

We went on the goat hike at the end of our Colorado vacation, after several days of hiking, games, and even an amusement park. This was hands-down our sons' favorite activity of the trip. We all learned so much about the area's mining operations and history from Valerie, who is an excellent storyteller. The goats are so gentle you can hug them. The trail goes up fairly high and it has a good amount of incline in a few places, but Valerie does a good job of stopping in shade to let everyone catch up. Gorgeous views, and she even takes family pictures for you at a few of the stops. Do not miss this if you are in the area.

Really fun, out of the ordinary experience. Valerie is a wonderful host. She shared the mining era stories of her mountain. The goats were fun. It will be one of the things that make this vacation highly memorable.
