There’s something about fall at Wickenburg Ranch that wakes up our senses and reminds us that anything and everything is possible here. Everywhere you look, the colors and terrain inspire a sense of joy and purpose to live life fully. Add to that world-class amenities, activities, and a passionate hospitality team, and you have the ingredients to make every day extraordinary from the start.

And with over 300 days of sunshine each year, Wickenburg Ranch is considered the oasis in the desert. So why not experience all of the fall activities our community has to offer?

We wanted to give you a glimpse of the magic that is Wickenburg Ranch in October. We know seeing is believing, so here’s a look at the highlights happening this month.


Up for a round of golf? Wickenburg has the courses for it, along with a climate that makes it a perfect option in the cooler fall season. October is time for new grass, with overseeding already underway on Li’l Wick, Big Wick, and the cubhouse turf areas. Our courses are greener and offer more playing experiences than ever this time of year. We look forward to reopening both courses later this month with some fresh new turf.


Wickenburg’s breathtaking desert setting is ideally suited for activities amid a backdrop of peaks and valleys that span the horizons. With balmy fall weather and 20 miles of interconnecting trail, Wickenburg Ranch has become a magnet for people looking for adventure at every turn. You can spend hours exploring the area, watching desert wildlife, and drinking in the beautiful views of the Wickenburg Mountains.


The beautiful 6-acre Lake Park provides a unique space, featuring a catch and release fishing experience, walking trail, picnic rotundas, frisbee golf, and plenty of green grass. It’s the perfect spot to soak up the cooler fall weather.


Our rugged and unique Pioneer Trails will take you over vistas and amaze you with beautiful views at each turn of the track. If you prefer a more leisurely ride, Wickenburg’s paved streets also allow you to take in the natural beauty of the high Sonoran Desert while pursuing a healthy lifestyle.


Oktoberfest is a must-have for October! Another successful event with our traditional German dinner party, which featured authentic German cuisine and polka music from the Phoenix Polka Club. It was a wonderful occasion to gather and a stunning sunset to boot.

Walk to Boot Breast Cancer

Every October, the Wickenburg Ranch team supports the fight against breast cancer at the annual Wickenburg Walks to Boot Breast Cancer race. This race raises funds for Wickenburg and surrounding rural areas. People of all ages enjoy this easy walk through historic downtown Wickenburg and scenic Simpson’s Ranch. Participants may choose to walk 1 mile, 5k, or complete a virtual walk.

Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest

It’s become a tradition to gather together before Halloween and decorate pumpkins that adorn the Grand Living Room Table. It’s fun. It’s easy. And it’s free! Guests vote on their favorite pumpkin for a prize.
