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.

If COVID losses make this hike expensive, please email and let's settle on an affordable price .

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 cabins 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 people that they nudge you for pets and pictures. We've owned goats since 2015. I've mid-wifed, doctored, milked, groomed and bred goats until we are now a team.
My family spent much of our early years with our archeologist father learning to see where "man" changed the shape of the land.

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.

We had so much fun hiking into the hills with Valerie, Polka, Coco, Mimi, Polly, (and Special Agent Gibbs). Valerie is a thoughtful and knowledgeable host who manages to shepherd the goats and the group with aplomb, while dispensing interesting bits of regional history. Highly recommended if you're up for a hike and love animals!

This hike was great! Almost didn’t make it this morning since I got into Colorado late last night, but I have absolutely no regrets. Valerie was an amazing hostess, and the goats were just as awesome. Definitely going to note that for anyone who isn’t used to the altitude and come from a very low altitude city like I do, bring lots of water, more than you think you need, and be aware that there is hiking up the mountain involved. Ultimately - it’s worth it and it’s a really cool experience!

Great experience! Valerie is very sweet and full of information on the history and magic of the area. The goats were having the best time hiking along with us! It was such a fun time and we loved every minute.

What a joy it was meeting Valerie, an amazing hostess, and her 'kids' (goats). The hike was full of historical information, humor, beautiful vistas, photo ops along the trail and with our hiking goat buddies. 2.5 hours, some steep inclines but pace yourself and bring water. An adventure you will really enjoy!
