The west and east forks of Elk Creek converge on the south east corner of the ranch, while the main branch of the creek meanders through the entire property. This spring fed mountain stream runs year around. Guests enjoy fishing, wading and playing in the pristine mountain waters along the creek banks. There is a 3 acre pond on property with kayaks, peddle boats & paddle board for guest use. The "Bird Sanctuary" foot path borders the east fork of Elk Creek - a nice walking trail to view song birds and ducks native to the area. Ranch activities such as horseback trail rides are available as well.
