WEST OF THE OLD LAST!
T Cross has a timeless magic. The dude ranch lies inside the Shoshone National Forest at an elevation of 7,800 feet, surrounded by an untouched country of pine forests and open meadows, trout-rich streams and small lakes, with endless vistas rising well over 11,000 feet—scenically magnificent.
Through the T Cross gate you will discover a pristine wilderness. Our backyard, the Washakie Wilderness Area of Wyoming, covers 704,274 acres, adjoining the southeastern boundary of Yellowstone National Park and the Teton Wilderness in one huge chunk of very wild country. From atop our well-trained horses, guests discover rugged mountain trails revealing a myriad of wildlife seen only in the greater Yellowstone area. Most guests, however, remember the T Cross for its familiar atmosphere that blends the color of the West and the relaxing comforts of home.
As our guest, you will experience a wide-range of accommodations and amenities whether you are traveling as a family, couple, or corporate group. Open up your itinerary for our all-day horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing, gourmet ranch meals, blue skies, kids' program, evening entertainment, and new friends.
The T Cross has been operating as an all-inclusive guest ranch since 1918, continuously offering unforgettable experiences that motivate generations of families to vacation with us year after year. As Louis L'Amour wrote, "There's a little cowboy in all of us, a little frontier." Experience the charm and warmth as you and your family step back to the Old West—and find your frontier.

SPECIAL RANCH VACATIONS FOR 2015
Breaking Trail in June
This is the best wildlife watching of the season! Be the first one up the mountain and help the cowboys break trail. It's always an adventure riding the primitive Abaroka Mountains at this time of year. Wildlife abounds, and baby animals appear across our uninhabited backyard. Try your hand at cross-cut saw and watch the wilderness wake up from the winter.
The Complete Family Dude Ranch Vacation
An ideal vacation for families, the T Cross provides lots of family time and plenty of healthy outdoor adventure. Unplug from technology and re-connect with family in a variety of activities that keep kids and teens happy and engaged. With old-fashioned hospitality, cookouts under the stars, dancing, wagon rides, and miles of wilderness to ride with seasoned cowboys, it’s the perfect place to make special memories to last a lifetime. Parents and Grandparents love sharing adventures with younger family members and still finding time to relax and unwind. One look at the relaxed, tuned-in faces of your kids or grandchildren after a week in the wild and you realize this is the best gift you’ll ever give them.
Adventurous guests want the T Cross pack trip experience. Whether you are a first timer or a veteran, we can offer a 100-mile progressive or an overnight trip to base camp. Pack tripping is about exploring, setting off alone in the wilderness, getting away from it all. But it isn't the wild places that you really discover, it's yourself. Somewhere between the late night crackle of the campfire and the morning's frosty sunrise, nature finds you and doesn't let go. T Cross offers a limited number of pack trips during July and August, so reserve yours today!
Cowboys. Wranglers. Horses. Mountains. And all your best friends (or sisters, mothers, and daughters)! Did we leave anything out? How about a destination vacation with the ladies, having the time of your lives “roughing it” at our all-inclusive dude ranch vacation. The best Girlfriend Getaway you could imagine!
