What you'll do

Follow a herd of 15 goats on a scenic trek throughout the High Desert.

Take in stunning views of the High Desert of the Mojave, accompanied by goats.

We’ll meet our 15 friendly Nubian goats in their pens. They’ll wait for us to open their gate, and then these loving animals will show us the way. We’ll follow the herd at an easy pace into desert washes and onto boulders, where we’ll find beautiful spots to sit and chat—or simply gaze into the silence of the landscape, the gaping sky, and the goats enjoying themselves.

We’ll walk about three miles and return with the goats after the sunset. If you want to stay for a longer time @ The Yogi Goats Farm & Retreat our Geodesic Dome is available on Airbnb:

I moved to the US from France over 20 years ago to pursue work as a yoga instructor and massage therapist. For the past 10 years, I’ve lived on a beautiful farm at a 4,500-foot elevation. Here, I take care of sweet Nubian goats, chickens, and a vegetable garden, all surrounded by granite boulders, Joshua trees, and piñon pines. I care for this land passionately, and I love sharing the beauty of the high desert with friends and visiting guests.

What a magical experience. We loved the goats and the scenery and the hike so much. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and now every hike without goats seems lacking..... thank you!!

Very fun and enjoyable experience.. to be out there in the desert with goats, baby and adults alike. Goat milk and a variety of teas at the end.

What an experience! The location was a bit hard to find and doubted myself several times, and it would be best to go in a SUV as the road is unpaved and pretty bumpy in some areas. It was pretty cold, but we were told in advance what to wear to stay warm. Emanuel was very knowledgeable in the goats and he told us what to expect, his story of how he ended on the goat farm, and was very welcoming. He genuinely cares for the goats and you can see that. There were 5 baby goats that are 2 weeks old and we got to hold them! They were adorable and they all have names. We were hiking with the goats freely, when we stopped, the goats stopped, we were free to pet them as we wish and the goats are very friendly and not afraid of human. It was a very calming experience to be with these wonderful animals and being in nature and seeing the beautiful land we were on. We ended the hike with some tea which was a perfect ending to it. I will be back!

So much fun. A gentle walk with the goats and a lot of information about them. Lots of time to take photos and relax and take in the nature. It's a long way out of Pioneertown so make sure to have good directions and a lot of time to get there! Emanual was really great - friendly and full of information. Definitely on our list if we go to the area again!
