Six Mile Ranch: Trail riding and ranching experiences

Roger and Wanda Williams own and operate Six Mile RanchROGER AND WANDA WILLIAMS own and operate Six Mile Ranch, which is a family-run, commercial cow/calf ranch operation. In conjunction with Terra (their daughter) and Eli Hatch, they run about 600 head and maintain a herd of approximately 50 horses. In about 1978, between range riding and haying, they decided to take guests to some of their favourite places in the Itcha and Ilgatchuz Mountains. There has not been a summer missed in the mountains since, and they still find that they enjoy their time showing off this beautiful area almost as much as the guests enjoy seeing it.

While Roger came into the country from Illinois in the early 70s, Wanda was raised in the Chilcotin and never had much desire to leave. Roger and Wanda WilliamsHer father was the late Lester Dorsey, who has been immortalized in many books including those by Rich Hobson, Paul St. Pierre, Diana Phillips, and most recently, Corky Williams. Both Lester and his wife Mickey were well known for their need to "see the other side of the mountain" and they instilled that in their only daughter as well. Roger worked for Lester, and many others in the country and remains an accomplished trapper, big game guide and rancher. Between the two of them, you are guaranteed a trip you wont forget. Full of rich history, amazing landscapes, sure footed ranch/mountain horses and experience born of a lifetime in the area. The majority of the clientele are repeat customers or have arrived by "word of mouth". Many close friendships have been formed as the result of this little business and no doubt many more will follow.
