Getting There

This historic ranch, near the mouth of the Paria River, was home to the families who operated Lees Ferry. This historic ranch, near the mouth of the Paria River, was home to the families who operated Lees Ferry. The place was so isolated that the families working at the crossing needed to be self-sufficient, growing food for themselves and their animals. Hard labor changed the barren desert into a green oasis. The main ranch buildings are about 700 feet (213 m) up the dirt road from the parking area. A "Walking Tour Guide" may be purchased at the entrance to the ranch. The complete tour of the orchard, log cabins, stone ranch house, and pioneer cemetery is about a 1-mile (1.6-km) round trip. There are picnic tables and shade trees at the ranch. Take drinking water with you

As others have said there isn’t much of a trail past the homestead but it’s an easy hike with interesting rock formations. There are orchards but the fruit was all gone in October.

Not necessarily a trail but more of a walk to historical buildings. Lonely Del Ranch was owned by John Doyle Lee and his many wifes. This place is very unique due to its history with the Mormon Church. A beautiful orchard irrigated from the Paria a river.

Not really a trail as much as it is a path to the Paria Canyon Trail.

This is pretty and quaint. It is fun to see the old buildings within the orchard. I expected that the trail would be a little longer but it connected to the Paria Trail sooner than I thought. This is great if you are just wanting to sterach your legs!

Easy hike, lots of history. If you go in the summer, bring plenty of water. Worth poking around the old buildings and getting the tour guide brochure.
