Join Us for an Arizona Trail Ride & Lunch Cookout
The M Diamond Ranch in Verde Valley’s Cowboy Lunch is a two-hour adventure that includes a one-hour trail ride and a delicious Arizona Dutch Oven lunch of cowboy stew, cornbread, homemade chocolate chip cookies, and lemonade served at The Sedona Lookout with 360-degree views of the Verde Valley. In the winter, this dining ramada is outfitted with heaters, and in the summer it provides ample shade so guests are comfortable year-round.
During the warmer months, the menu changes to grilled burgers with all the fixins, potato salad, watermelon, and juice bars.
This is the cookout experience we recommend for families with young children. If you have a multi-generational family, we suggest parents and kids over seven, go on the horseback ride, and then be joined by grandparents and kids under seven for lunch. You can add a Shortie Ride” for the kids under seven, where a guide leads them on horseback around the corral, and there are also yard-type games such as cornhole, ring toss, and giant Jenga for the whole family to enjoy together!
