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.

Hunting near the Lodge

The 2011 hunting season is almost here. The Lodge at Red River Ranch hosts scores of enthusiastic hunters every year. For the occasion, we’ve jotted down a few of the things we know from hunting in Southern Utah.
