Warner-Carrillo Ranch House
29181 San Felipe Road, Warner Springs CA 92086
On the S2/half mile east of the 79 junction
The stagecoach ride from the Warner-Carrillo Ranch House will go along the original trail and the Buena Vista Creek. The journey will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes round-trip and includes an in-depth guided tour of the ranch house before or after the ride, and light refreshments of lemonade and cookies are included.
Before or after your overland stage ride pulled by two beautiful Belgian draft horses, enjoy a tour guided by knowledgeable docents of one of California's most historic sites. Built in 1857, the Warner-Carrillo Ranch House served as the Butterfield Stage Stop and was California's first regular overland stage connection with St. Louis. With its multilayered history, the adobe ranch house tells the story of the emigrant trail, the overland stage, and the prominent ranching history of the area.
You may want to bring a bag lunch to enjoy in the back yard on picnic benches at the Santa Ysabel Store, an 1880's Adobe, which is only 11 miles from the ranch house and is another great SOHO historic site to visit while you are out in the backcountry! Restroom facilities are on site.
