"Go West!" After being greeted at SMITH RANCH in Julian, your group will travel with a pioneer guide into the 1800's American frontier. Learn about nature and wild edibles on the Secret Trail. Help build a log fort in the wilderness. Turn sod at Charlie's farm. Climb aboard the SR&J narrow gauge mining train for a scenic ride to our Julian Pioneer Mining Camp. Additional activities include exploring our real Smith Ranch 1870's gold rush mine, helping with the pioneer home-life, panning for gold, joining the Pony Express and more. Bring a sack lunch, come in costume, and be prepared for a genuine pioneer gold rush adventure!
