Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Bronze level
Red Tail Ranch is located on 50 acres just seven miles east of Groveland, CA, and 20 miles from the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite National Park (Highway 120). New for 2017 we will offer four (4) guest rooms - A full breakfast is included. Located at the end of a private gravel road, the Ranch is a quiet, peaceful place to enjoy nature and wildlife. Only 2 1/2 hours from the San Francisco Bay Area, it is a perfect place to spend a nice weekend get away. Red Tail Ranch has a farm-type atmosphere and visiting the barnyard is an experience you'll remember. Spend time with horses, chickens and become acquainted with our three friendly dogs. Sophie & Barkley will announce your arrival and quickly become your best friends. Guests can gather eggs, groom a horse, hike the trails on the property, or just relax and take in the sights.
