Det skal I lave

Big “Hello” from the “Girls” and I on Arkansas Mountain. We begin our adventure at the ol’ Stage Stop cabin, our home. It’s a passion of mine to unfold the feeling of the times of 1859 from the journals and letters of these miners. This is not a unique story but one shared by frontier people worldwide.

Next you’ll meet Polly, Mimi, Polka and Coco, your hiking companions. They are gentle girls, 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, mine portals and root cellars, blacksmith forge, and more. I'll point out blow holes where miners tested for gold and the triple pine tree trunks growing over old mining tunnels. The land reveals many secrets of our past when you know its contours.

Along the way there will be time for photos and a trail stops for breathing and storytelling. Our hike ends at the STAGE STOP, where we began. The STAGE STOP was named for the blacksmith services offered to the mining community right here on our property, the Ol' Crane Ranch.

A review, "The hike with Valerie and her goats was the highlight of our trip. We went to Boulder, then their location and her stories offered everything to experience the real beauty and history of Colorado."

We have an EV QUICK CHARGE STATION.

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

Her skal du være

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.

Our family (with our teens ages 16 & 18) had such an enjoyable morning with Valerie. She is a plethora of information and a great storyteller. She is smart as a whip and a super down to earth. The hike had some beautiful views, a lot of history and of course the goats stole the show. Very sweet. We highly recommend.

I loved my time with Valerie and her girls! I expected to love this experience due to loving both goats and hiking, and it was everything I hoped for and more. I really enjoyed talking with Valerie and appreciated her knowledge, candor, and desire to share in a way that felt very conversational. I left feeling like I had gained quite a bit of knowledge about the area and mining, and happy to have spent a couple of hours with her and her lovely girls. I would highly recommend doing this excursion to anyone and hope to do another trip in the future! Thank you so much, Valerie!

This is a must do for those who want to hike in the Denver area. The storytelling and detail to history by Valarie was entertaining and informative, and having Polka, Mimi, Coco and Polly lead the way added a new dimension to the hike. The views were amazing, and getting a feel for what it was like for the miners and their families in that time was priceless. I can’t recommend this enough!

This is my second goat hike with Valerie and it was just as wonderful as the first time. In fact, she had added a few extra stops and tidbits of information, so that made it even more interesting.

My partner and I had a wonderful time hearing Valerie's stories about historic sites along the trail while making fast friends with her goats and with fellow hikers! If you're near Boulder or Rocky Mountain National Park, this excursion will add something unique to your travel experience.
