The Ranch

We Know the Perfect Place to Kick Back and Unwind

Ready for some rest, relaxation and having a whole lot of fun? At Colorado Trails Ranch, you’ll discover what family vacations are really all about. You’ll have a whole week of good times, great food and adventure that’s fun for anyone, at any age. Surrounded by gorgeous mountains, your family will find it easy to reconnect with each other, and yourselves.

The great outdoors takes on an entirely new perspective surrounded by the natural panorama of the San Juan Mountains. It’s inspiring and rejuvenating as you walk the nature trails, ride the rapids or see it from the saddle. It will be quite the experience for each of you, and so relaxing.

You’ll enjoy the homemade food and baked goods served at every meal. There will be many Kodak moments shared with those you love, and some great new friends.


A friendly, warm and inviting atmosphere.

From the time you arrive, you’ll feel welcomed and taken care of by our happy family of staff. Your dude ranch cabin will be a comfortable, cozy home away from home during your stay.

Children have the best time discovering all manner of new things with ranch friends their own age. While kids are under the guidance of their counselors, adults are free to enjoy whatever sounds fun each day. You can go horseback riding, fishing, trap shooting or white water rafting, for a start. If all the activities offered don’t give you enough of a workout, our exercise room will help you keep on top of your daily fitness routine.

The secret to a perfect family vacation is quite simple.

Long ago, we discovered that everyone… kids and adults alike, need to have the freedom to enjoy their own brand of fun and adventure apart. Combining the balance between personal time and quality family time is not something found just anywhere – but it’s a daily affair at Colorado Trails Ranch.

If you’re looking into family vacation resorts, you will no doubt be seeking the best place for both you and your kids to have a wonderful time. At Colorado Trails Ranch, our specialty is creating fun filled experiences for all ages. A week on our guest ranch will be nothing but tons of fun for each of you while you kick back, relax and reconnect as a family.


Evenings provide lots of quality family time.

Dinner will be enriched by everyone’s adventure tales. Then you’ll all be kicking up your heels square dancing, on a hayride headed for the campfire, and watching the setting sun give way to billions of stars winking overhead.

Real banana splits from our old-fashioned Soda Fountain and the heated pool are just some of the many luxuries that make the Colorado Trails Ranch a wonderful experience. Toss in meals cooked over a campfire, overnight camp outs for the kids, miles of beautiful streams and countryside, and the hilarity of learning Western dancing – and you have quite a week in store for each of you.

One of the authentic dude ranches in Colorado, all inclusive vacation packages at Colorado Trails are filled with new experiences people of all ages enjoy. Your week here can be spent doing so many different activities; it is hard to fit them all into one vacation stay.
