Wat je gaat doen

It's the goats or "girls" as I call them that welcome you to the 59er's trail hike. They walk with you, around you and among you.

We begin our tour at the STAGE STOP homestead 20 minutes from Boulder for our hike through history. Starting with a talk about the history of the area we will then walk through the pioneer homestead in Cloud City mining district. Then we set off on the miners’ trail up Arkansas Mountain, named for the Acansa Indians.

Retracing the trail of the '59ers, we'll see old mine portals, the Cloud City school house, Cornish stone walls built to shore up hillsides, mine portals and donkey-cart chutes, 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 how and where to look.

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, when their location and her stories offered everything to experience the real beauty and history of Colorado."

We offer a QUICK CHARGE STATION.

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

Waar je naartoe gaat

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.

This was such a fun experience. Valerie is an expert on the area and it’s history. She explained things in a fun way and we really learned about the history of mining in Colorado during the 1860s. AND THE GOATS!! What a treat to hike with 4 beautiful goats (and one adorable dog). We learned so much about goat keeping, their personalities, and this particular breed (Texas Genemaster). The countryside and views were gorgeous. We even got a bit of refreshing rain at the summit. We highly recommend this experience!

The goats are lovely, well cared for and friendly. The trail has some pretty views. The host has a deep understanding of the area and the history, and has an infectious curiosity. I would definitely recommend.

This is a very interesting experience. This is a good hiking tour if you have kiddos because the goats keep the children entertained as well! Valerie was very friendly and welcoming!

This was a great unique experience. We live not far away in Colorado but still learned a lot about the area. Valerie was a great guide. And the goats were excellent hiking companions!

Valerie—could you adopt us so we can be around your amazing story telling, Jesse’s incredible art and your beautiful spirit forever? Folks, 5 ⭐️ reviews don’t lie. My 9-year-old hugged and thanked me for taking him on this adventure. We had the BEST time! Being the mom of a 2e kid, I choose my adventures carefully. This one blew it out of the ballpark and I bet my son will always remember the time we spent with Valerie and “the girls”. ❤️❤️❤️
