When it comes to selecting a ranch for your vacation getaway, there are several points that you will want to consider. There are many guest ranch options available, making a selection even more challenging when you are seeking out fun for the entire family. At Colorado Trails Ranch, we offer a vast array of activities to appeal to every age and member of your party, making your stay memorable and enjoyable.

When most people think of a dude ranch, they envision horseback riding. While we offer plenty of the equestrian recreation for all skill levels, Colorado Trails Ranch provides so much more. Fishing expeditions, white water rafting, hiking through wooded and mountain nature trails and power tubing deliver the action and adventure that outdoor enthusiasts crave.

For those who prefer relaxing in the fresh air and sunshine, our lending library provides reading material to enjoy on your cabin porch or by the pool. Unwind in our hot tub or indulge in a sweet treat in our nostalgic soda fountain. Catch up on your email communications through our lounge’s wireless Internet access.

We host a number of activities to keep children of all age groups happy and occupied throughout their stay, including arts and crafts, a visit to our petting zoo, hayrides, sports, scavenger hunts, archery and an overnight campout. Even your teens will be hard pressed to pull out their mobile devices except to boast all of the cool, new things that they are trying.

Situated in a valley that borders the San Juan National Forest, Colorado Trails Ranch abounds with lush scenery and sweeping, panoramic mountain views for breathtaking photographic opportunities. We also provide daytime excursions for guests to revel in the charms of Durango’s shopping village or delve into the scenic beauty and ancient history of the Mesa Verde National Park.

Spectacular evening sunsets usher in a host of communal activities, including ice cream socials, barbecue cookouts, country dancing, theatrical shows, campfires and hayrides. For couples that wish to steal away some romantic quality time, we also provide activities to keep the little ones entertained.

Whether you choose to engage in the action from sunrise to sunset or prefer some quiet time for reflection, you are entirely free to enjoy yourself.
