Hawk’s Rest Ranch is a 200-acre ranch in the Pistol River Valley. The ranch is named for the red-tailed hawks that can be seen soaring overhead. The 90-minute beach rides take you to the sandy dunes and rocky shores of the Pacific Ocean. Trips along the beach are also available at sunset when you can watch the sun dip below the horizon. There are 60-minute and 90-minute rides on the ranch and through the forest. The rides will take you past open meadows, through the woods and along bubbling creeks where you will be able to see the Siskiyou Mountains to the east. Private half-day and full-day rides can be arranged. Hawk’s Rest Ranch is for beginning horseman, experienced riders and everyone in between. The horses are very gentle and have been featured in movies and commercials. The Siskiyou West Day Lodge, which is less than a mile from the coast, has daytime activities to fill your visit, including a gift store, museum, art gallery and studio.
