A Rip-Roarin’ Dude Ranch Experience in the San Juan Mountains!

Pack your boots, saddle up the horse, and welcome yourself to Colorado Trails Ranch, an all-inclusive dude ranch experience in the heart of the San Juan Mountains! Located just northeast of the historic mining town of Durango, this 450-acre property helps you discover your inner cowboy or cowgirl and also rediscover yourself. The ranch’s main attraction, horseback riding, remains its biggest draw, offering everything from riding lessons to exciting cattle drives and rodeo games. However, horseback riding is just the beginning. The ranch boasts two miles of private water on the Florida River, the perfect place for a day of fly fishing for trout. The ranch’s ‘downtown’ area--a replication of a small Western town--is filled with fun amenities like a dance hall, a ruckus room complete with games, and even an authentic soda fountain, which is the perfect place to cool off after a rough ride. And, make sure to stay up for the nightly sing-a-longs, campfires, and live entertainment before calling it a night in the ranch’s rustic cabin accommodations! Yee-haw!
