Evening Verde Valley Horseback Riding Adventure
The evening Ranch Rendezvous starts with a one-hour Verde Valley trail ride for ages seven and up, followed by a horse drawn wagon ride to dinner and entertainment at The Sedona Lookout, our all-weather cookout site with spectacular 360-degree views of Sedona, the Verde Valley, and the Mogollon Rim. Enjoy our spectacular sunsets and even see the lights of Jerome floating in the sky. The Sedona Lookout is a covered ramada for outdoor patio dining, so please dress accordingly. In the winter, it is partially enclosed and has patio heaters.
You spend a total of about three hours as our guest for the Arizona trail ride and cookout, enjoying delicious food in a casual atmosphere with room for your kids to roam.
AFTER THE COOKOUT, why not trade in city lights for star gazing on your private patio when you stay in our GUEST HOUSE? See the Lodging page for more information.
Evening Ranch Rendezvous cookout menu
The menu features mesquite grilled steak, cut and bought locally the day it is served, with cowboy beans, corn on the cob, grilled peppers, salad, and peach pie/cobbler, all accompanied by iced tea, lemonade. You can request chicken or a veggie burger instead of steak, and regular hamburgers are also available. Steaks are cooked to order, and menu choices are made with your reservations. Options for kids under 7 are hamburger or hot dog. Please do also tell us of any food allergies or special dietary needs when you make your reservation.
For those people in your party who aren’t going to go on the horseback ride (kids under seven, grandparents, and others) we offer a Dinner Only option. If members of your group do not want to ride, they can enjoy the rest of the evening with you. They meet up with you after the trail ride for dinner so you can all enjoy a great meal and entertainment together.
AVAILABILITY: The Ranch Rendezvous is the most popular thing to do in Verde Valley with M Diamond Ranch, and we have a few ways of accommodating you even if you don’t see availability online for the dates you need. Just give us a call at 928-300-6466
