Outlaw Trail Adventure

OUTLAW TRAIL RIDE to the HOLE-in-the-WALL Willow Creek Ranch is the actual location of the outlaw hideout made famous by Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, known as the Hole-in-the-Wall. This area at the base of the 300 foot high Red Wall was a remote and easily defended hideout. Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch and other outlaws hid here after robberies and grazed stolen horses and cattle while altering brands. Scattered across this range are magnificent red rock formations and flat-top mesas reminiscent of classic western movies. Our ride across the high plains will take us past the still visible site of a Sioux Indian tipi village, the ruins of an old cavalry fort and through a deep and scenic canyon, where the remains of hidden outlaw cabins still stand. This area has changed little in 100 years. You'll see no modern development, houses, or roads here. The Hole-in-the-Wall area of the ranch was closed to visitors for many years, however, we are now able to take guests to the actual Hole-in-the-Wall location where you can literally feel the western history. The RMHA Outlaw Trail Ride is an historically accurate re-enactment of an outlaw gang's journey along their original trail to the hideout. You'll live like an outlaw on the run, on this five day horseback adventure. The posse will be hot on your trail, so keep your eyes peeled and get ready for ambushes! Our final camp will be at Butch Cassidy's original cabin site at the Hole-in-the-Wall, with a day left to ride the area, see the ancient Indian petroglyphs in the canyon wall and the famous outlaws secret get-away trail.
