The Lodge and its Bison

The American Bison is tied to the story of the Old West like almost no other creature. It provided food, clothing, and shelter for the native tribes that lived on the plains. It aided the trappers and the early wilderness explorers that came from the […]

Two of our favorite trails

We at The Lodge at Red River Ranch like exploring trails—off-road vehicle trails, hiking trails, or horse trails, we like them all. Here are a couple of our favorites close by. These two trails are perfect for those reaching out for a little, genuine, Utah adventure.

Cathedral Valley

Cathedral Valley is the name of the wild, northern section of Capitol Reef National Park. Although it can be a little adventurous getting there, we at the Lodge agree it is a remarkable journey.
