Rest and relaxation at its finest

vvn1 vvn2

By Peggy Iceton for the Valley Views
Do you want or need to unwind, kick back or just relax and enjoy nature at its finest?
If you answered yes to any of the above, why not take a drive to EC Bar Ranch for some time to relax.

Take a trail ride through the natural beauty of the forest and abundant wildlife to behold. The riding trails are varied and follow along the East Prairie River. Won-derful friendly staff with a down to earth attitude await those who come to their ranch.
Don’t forget to bring your

lunch for a picnic at the river or if you want to take a half a day trail ride a wiener roast and cold refreshments will be provided for you, part way through your ride.
Bringing relaxation into one’s life is what EC Bar
Ranch is all about, and they are dedicated to doing just that.


Ready to take the plunge.
