You’ll enjoy the scenic beauty of nearby Antimony Canyon, while our knowledgeable guides teach you about the local history, and rock formations. The cool refreshing stream running through the canyon can cool you off on a hot summer day. You’ll find it hard to believe that the canyon used to house a thriving mining community a century ago, when all that is now left to show for it are a few empty mine shafts and the remains of some old rock cabins.
Butch Cassidy was raised in the nearby community of Circleville, and rumor has it that he and his outlaw friends would hide out in the hills near the Rockin’ R Ranch. We’ve found his favorite hiding spot, and we’ll take you to it. It’s pretty amazing, and you’re sure to enjoy our Bandit’s Hideout hike.
