Sometimes, it can be hard to get the whole family together. The young ones spend their time in front of the Xbox 360 you bought them for Christmas, the teenagers spend more time in their room and out with their friends than anywhere else, and the parents are far too busy with their hectic lives. Every now and then, it’s good to slow down and spend some time with the ones that mean the most to you.

When planning a family adventure vacation, there are several things that you should consider. First, you want to find somewhere that will be engaging for every member of the family. Next, you want to find a place that will make all the stress of your daily life obsolete. Last but not least, you want to plan a family adventure vacation that you know will bring your family closer and be remembered for years to come.

Colorado Trails fits each of these descriptions beautifully. At our guest ranch, our goal is to provide you with the perfect atmosphere to build a stronger family bond, while also having the time of your life.

Your biggest worries when going on a family ranch vacation are probably concerning your children. You always want to make sure that they are receiving the proper care and are being watched carefully. Our dude ranch kids’ program is unlike any other. We understand that children can get bored quite easily, and that is why we offer a bunch of different activities that will have them on their feet and enjoying the beautiful Colorado skies.

Got a teen? We have a solution. If you have a teen, they might not be too excited to hear that your family adventure vacation is going to take place at a guest ranch. They might find it hard to believe, but every teen that leaves after being a part of our dude ranch teen’s program is sad they have to leave, but thankful for their wonderful experience.

Naturally, the family may go their own way in some parts of the day. The parents may want to enjoy a relaxing ride on horseback through the meadows. The teens may want to try power tubing at Lake Vallecito for the first time. The younger ones may want to go on a scavenger hunt, followed by a trip to our guest ranch petting zoo.

No matter what different members of the family may get into during the day, there are always times where we like to bring the families closer. The mornings and evenings are the perfect time to enjoy your all inclusive family vacations together. When the sun goes down, we hold activities like ice cream socials, western dancing, and even family cookouts. There’s no better place to have family time than at Colorado Trails Guest Ranch.
