Hay Rides

Lucky 8 Ranch strives to bring a unique one of a kind experience to all of our visitors!

Take a hay ride in the back of one of our old grain trucks.  We will take a journey through our hay meadows and learn about holistic land management, how grass is managed, pasture reclamation, and how hay is harvested.  We will also take in the beautiful views Routt County has to offer and learn about its history and heritage.  Ride through the bison herd and learn about how these animals have stood the test of time. 


This is a great tour for taking photos.
