Saucito Ranch Tour

Carrizo Plain National Monument Tours

The tour meets at the Goodwin Education Center off of Soda Lake Road at 10 a.m. and will caravan up to the ranch. The El Saucito Ranch has the distinction of having the oldest standing historic house on the Monument and is the only ranch on the monument to have been occupied from the pioneer period to modern time. Historic sites such as the El Saucito Ranch are special places that tell us a story about the heritage of California. The tour includes a short hike around the grounds of the ranch, descriptions of the facilities and the operation of the historic ranch, and stories about the way life was 100+ years ago on the Carrizo Plain. 

Next tour is scheduled for April 21, 2024
