Wickenburg: Where a Dude can play the Duke
A brief history of the town of Wikenbug, scroll down for information about our Ranch.
A century after its official birth as a town in 1863, the focus of Wickenburg had shifted from mining to tourism and the town had become the “dude ranch capital of the world”. Those were the hey days of the dude ranches, when every winter guests from all across the United States as well as from foreign countries would flock to Wickenburg with its warm and dry climate, and winter temperatures ranging in the mid 70s.
All I Ever Wanted WasTo Be a Cowboy! Enter the Effus Ranch…
Here we, I say we are saddling up for some “Dudes” to go on a trailride. I am a member of the ranch cowboys at this time. Lets see I have met the owner and she has asked me to stay a while that they have a nice level camping spot in front of her house…. Yes less than a hour on site and I am a REAL COWBOY ON A REAL RANCH!!!!!
Effus Ranch, a memorable weekend!!!
I live in Phoenix and arranged 2 weeks in advance to take my nephew horseback riding for a day of fun and relaxation. Last minute the plans fell through.
I did not want to disappointment my nephew so I quickly researched other ranches in the Wickenberg area and located a “working cattle ranch” which was amazing! Effus Ranch is highly recommended as it’s not just a ride but the experience of a working class ranch here in the Southwest. It’s spread over acres of BLM land and swirls into the mountains with amazing views of the valley of the sun! Call Effus Ranch and book your ride.
I’ve referred family, friends and business associates and highly recommend this adventure of “Effus Ranch” as they did back flips to accommodate and it was an adventure “never to be forgotten!”
