As well as our varied riding program Tombstone Monument Ranch offers hiking in and around the surrounding hills and desert washes.
Discover the ruins of “Watervale” the original Tombstone settlement. Located on the Ranch near the Schieffelin Monumnent where Ed Schieffelin hid from the Apaches that were trying to find him. Watervale was the only place in the area where above ground water could be found and where the first prospectors and miners settled after silver had been discovered.
Visit abandoned mines and prospectors monuments, just a small taste of the history that surrounds the ranch. At the end of the 1800s Tombstone was a flourishing silver mining town and the hills where Tombstone Monument Ranch is situated are covered with old mines and mining claims with discarded tools and mining equipment.
Or take a casual stroll up to schieffelin’s monument located just up the road from the ranch.
