Durango, CO, February 8, 2010

Picking the best dude ranch vacation destination means selecting the ranch that features everything you need and stuff you never considered. Colorado Trails Ranch has every detail covered from great food to comfortable lodging and an excellent lineup of horseback riding vacation activities. You will meet a lot of great people here beginning with our unusually friendly, happy staff. Your dude ranch experience will be fun and relaxing from the moment you arrive at Colorado Trails. Every group who spends a week with us forms new friendships over shared accomplishments, adventure and fun.

While available lodging can accommodate 55 dude ranch guests each week, your activities in the saddle will be matched to your ability and wishes. For our novice dude ranch vacation riders there will never be more than six guests on a group ride. This will ensure that your riding lessons will be a highly customized experience for you under the skilled tutelage of our seasoned wranglers. Don’t get the idea you are too much of a greenhorn at riding, about 20% of our horseback riding vacation guests have been on a horse more than two or three times. They all have a great time here at Colorado Trails, and so will you.

Since going on a dude ranch horseback riding vacation will center on sitting in the saddle, you will have the time of your life loping across our valley’s meadow. Adventure awaits you on miles of scenic mountain trails too; Colorado Trails dude ranch sits on the edge of the San Juan National Forest. There are a lot of trails that begin on our ranch and go off into those two million acres of majestic, rugged terrain.

For experienced riders and horse owners, a dude ranch vacation offers riding experiences not possible in your local area. Not everyone lives close enough to the Rockies or San Juan Mountains to be able to enjoy the adventure of traversing them on horseback. Colorado Trails has quite a number of well healed riders who come just to enjoy this special beauty in the saddle. You won’t be disappointed in our fine riding stock selection. Our dude ranch horses are high quality animals and we know you’ll get a charge out of our selection of challenging trails. The scenery is stunning here in the Durango area and a horseback riding vacation at Colorado Trails is the perfect opportunity to do what you love best for an entire week.

We know you’ll enjoy evenings in our Opera House doing both line and square dancing traditional Western style. No Colorado dude ranch vacation would be complete without a campfire cowboy sing-along, and you’ll get just that at Colorado Trails. We have hayrides and campfire cookouts, even a breakfast cookout.
