Remember those towns that you used to see in those old western movies? That was the inspiration for our dude ranch. At Colorado Trails, we want to create an atmosphere that’s fun, friendly, and just like the olden days. The facilities in our Durango dude ranch were crafted to resemble old town stores and shops. Both children and adults love to marvel at the buildings and discover what awaits them inside.

One of the first things that our guests notice when moving in is what we like to call our Western Town. This street, lined with stores and shops, is a fun place to go during any time of the day. Here, you will find an Opera House, Ruckus Room, Soda Fountain, Trading Post, fly fishing center, which is housed in the Blacksmith Shop, and our Colorado Trails office, which is housed in the Assay Office.

Our dude ranch Opera House is where many evening activities take place. If you’ve ever wanted to try square dancing, grab a partner and head on down! It’s a fun place to meet new people, have some fun, and let loose.

It’s important for the children to have a place where they can be surrounded by other children and make new friends. Our Ruckus Room is the perfect place for children to hang out, play games, and even read during your all inclusive family vacations. This room features ping-pong, foosball, air hockey, and pool tables. There is even a library where there are books available that older children may be interested in.

The Soda Fountain is another hot spot for the children. Even the adults get a sweet tooth every now and then. Here, our guests can enjoy old fashioned milkshakes, malts, and banana splits. When the sun is shining down on our Durango dude ranch, it’s the perfect time to head over to the Soda Fountain to get some cold, delicious ice cream.

Aside from our Western Town, Colorado Trails Guest Ranch also has many other facilities. These facilities include a basketball court, rifle range, horseshoe pit, petting zoo, volleyball court, archery range, swimming pool, and hot tub. Throughout the day, you are free to enjoy all the facilities at our Colorado dude ranch.

Sometimes, people ask us what makes us different from any other dude ranch. There are several things that set us apart from other ranches. Our outstanding variety of facilities is unlike any other dude ranch, and so is our list of activities. However, the number one thing that makes us unique is our amazing group of staff. We are dedicated to making your dude ranch vacation the best that you’ve ever had. Our ranch is not just run by a group of staff, but by a fun and friendly mix of people, who have become the Colorado Trails family.
