Do you know someone at the ranch or am I missing something?

I would definitely be in, but does anyone know when they are opening it up for hiking? Also, does anyone know when we can start making reservations? I heard a few months ago that they changed management at the ranch...to make reservations, do we still call the same number that Bill has listed here? I am clueless and apologize if these questions have recently been addressed...

Thanks for any info you all may have!

I have the same questions. Hoping to climb it the 22nd if they are opening it up. I think historically the route has opened to hikers in mid-June.

Last post I read here on contact info for the Cielo Vista Ranch was posted by Anna:

"To answer your first question, e-mail will be the most efficient means of contact (cmbucks@hotmail.com), however messages can be left at 417-276-6942."

This was a response from the ranch to a question submitted by Anna. I've also read in this forum the ranch usually starts taking reservations for the summer on or around May 15th.

I'm planning to join a few friends on August 17 to climb Culebra, my "last" 14er, so I'll be making that call soon myself. Hope to see some of you then!

I checked with my hiking buddy and yes, they do not take reservations until May 15th, which is when we'll reserve for a group. Let me know who's in and I'll compile a list. State which day you want to hike, 15th or 22nd and we'll go with the majority.

Unfortunately, those two days and in between are not ideal for me....

I'd be looking to do it either late May (doesn't seem feasible based on your feedback from them) or early/mid July or early September. There might be a spot in mid August I could do it as well...
