Coffee Creek Ranch offers a variety of horseback riding activities from the 2-hour ride to Wilderness Pack Trips high in the Trinity Alps Wilderness area. Access to the pack trip locations is dependent on snow and trail conditions so call us and see if the location of your choice is available. All pack trips must be booked ahead so they can be scheduled. Dates for pack trip hunts for archery and rifle seasons are detailed on our hunting page.

WILDERNESS PACK TRIPS The Trinity Alps Wilderness Area is over 517,000 acres of old growth forest, granite peaks and 130 lakes, named for the miners, ranchers, and wildlife that frequented each area in earlier times. Find out why the Swiss miner named these majestic peaks after his beloved Alps of Switzerland. We even have a Matterhorn! Come explore “God’s Country” for yourself, and discover another country! The lakes that we pack into on a regular basis are Union, Foster, Sugar Pine, Stoddard, and Lion Lake. Trail heads we use are the North, South & East Fork of Coffee Creek, Big Flat, Swift Creek, Long Canyon, and Stuart’s Fork. We will take hunters any place, as long as it is safe for our animals. All lakes are located within the wilderness area, and do require permits. Permits can be obtained through the ranch for your convenience.
