A guide to your Ranch Experience – Why you should hit the trails in Spring

There’s nothing quite like BC in Springtime. After our long cold winter, the snow clears and flowers and pasture come alive. At Campbell Hills Guest Ranch, the trails are refreshed and horses ready to explore the mountainous terrain.

Experience Wildlife at it’s purest

Don’t be surprised to see Coyotes roaming the thousands of acres that surround us. The land is home to all kinds of wonderful creatures awakening for the warmer months.

Our riding trails have seen it all, Mama Bears and their Cubs sheltered by Douglas Fir, Deer and Moose leaping through the trees and Bald Eagles soaring through the sky. Elevate to panoramic views, relax and get back to nature.
