The speed limit is 10 mph on Old Rancheria Road. Please be courteous to our neighbors and drive safely and slowly!

“I always feel calm driving up to the riding center, while my eyes take rest on the slow curves of green hills and the simple wild flowers along the windy road. Then we pass through the deep redwood forest, cool and mystical with magnificent trees meditating. By the time we arrive at Halleck Creek Ranch, I am relaxed and happy to see the familiar people.”
