Visitor Guidelines

OLT welcomes visitors to see the livestock, fish, birds, historic farm equipment, fields, and reservoir at the Everson Ranch. Always check-in at the OLT Welcome Center before touring the Ranch unattended. Visitors may be invited to help water the new trees around the reservoir or even feed the animals.

Be especially careful to re-close all cattle gates behind you.

Do not enter any structures without a host with you. 

No driving past the farm house toward the reservoir requires a high-clearance vehicle. We recommend the leisurely walk instead.

As always, leave no trace.

For the education, enjoyment, and well-being of current and future generations, Orient Land Trust: 
promotes a positive clothing-optional experience at all properties including Valley View Hot Springs, Orient Mine and Everson Ranch;
preserves the viewshed, including land acquisition; 
protects natural, wild, agricultural, and historic resources, in the northern San Luis Valley.
