There's plenty to do and see for the whole family! From our stunnning golf course and pool bar for the adults, to our playground and family movie nights for the kids, there's something for everyone at Elkhorn Ridge. Here's our top 3 favorites!

Hike the Trail

The beautiful 4.5 mile walking, hiking, biking trail is open for Elkhorn Ridge Golf Estate home owners, golfers, and resort goers. The trail has stacked loops that allow you to choose your difficulty level and length. For a nice stroll on the historic ranch, take the small lower loop made of recycled asphalt. To see the incredible sights from Elkhorn Peak, hike or ride your mountain bike along the upper trail that winds along the rim of Polo Creek Canyon. No matter which loop you choose, you’re sure to have a blast exploring the history and beauty of the Frawley Ranch.

Try a local beer

Try our very own specialty brew - the Frawley Sunset Amber Ale! We also carry rotating variety of local taps at the Miller Creek Pub, located next to the Elkhorn Ridge Golf Club. Enjoy a frosty beverage on the patio or a glass of wine by the fire while gazing at the beautiful scenery of the Black Hills. Try the tastey daily specials, appetizers, brunch, prime rib night, and more!

Feed the Buffalo

The buffalo are a favorite attraction on the Historic Frawley Ranch. The head herd bull, “Buster”, is sure to click his heels together if you give him a few morsels of cow cake. There’s nothing quite like seeing the long blue tongue of a buffalo reaching out for a treat! With about two dozen cows in the herd, a highlight for locals is seeing the tiny baby calves in the late spring. Jump on a guided tour of the Frawley Ranch every Friday and Saturday morning to get in on the buffalo feeding frenzy!
