Half Day at Saguaro Lake Ranch

Welcome to Arizona, where ranching has been an integral part of our history since the 1600s. Saguaro Lake Ranch is a guest ranch located by Saguaro Lake, on the banks of the Salt River, in the shadow of the majestic Bulldog Cliffs. Here you can experience a variety of outdoor activities and panoramic views of a wilderness made famous by the writings of Zane Grey.

CCFW has put together a fun day with your choice of horseback riding, hiking or kayaking, followed by lunch and drinks back at the ranch. This event is a casual activity that allows for unique experiences and fun with friends. Our group will be picked up from The Scottsdale McCormick at 8:00 AM, and dropped off back at the hotel by 3:00 PM.

Bring your camera, hiking shoes, warm clothes and join us for a day at the ranch!
