People have been coming to Durango for over a century just to admire the scenery. There is a great deal more excitement to be found in this part of Southwestern Colorado than panoramic views. Just 11 miles outside of downtown Durango, you’ll arrive at our 450 acre Western dude ranch on the edge of the San Juan National Forest. From the youngest children to grandparents, everyone will find great fun and great food at our dude ranch. Colorado Trails offers week long guest packages that appeal to singles, families and groups of good friends.
Our mission is to provide each and every guest with the best Western dude ranch vacation experience. Half the fun in taking a horseback riding – fly fishing vacation is learning what this is all about. If you were already skilled at it, you wouldn’t be on an adventure at all. We do have some skilled horsemanship guests and seasoned anglers, but most are here for the discovery of all the guest ranch fun.
You may be taking a trip into the scenic, rugged countryside, but you won’t lose touch with important business and fall behind on your email. Our Lodge Loft at dude ranch Colorado Trails is the scene of WIFI for your laptop, hot coffee and the morning newspaper. You can go on a horseback riding – fly fishing vacation in the wilds and keep track of important events back home.
Relaxing and enjoying yourself here is very easy, and the adventure begins the moment you arrive in the parking lot of this Western dude ranch. Camaraderie and instant friendships are forged every week as our guests arrive and leave all at the same time. All of our guests expect to have a good time, but they are surprised when the Colorado Trails experience exceeds their expectations.
Daytime dude ranch Durango activities include more than just horseback riding and fly fishing. There is swimming in our heated pool, shooting traps, basketball and volleyball, a game of pool or an exciting river raft ride down the Animas River. Big kids and adults will love power tubing on Vallecito Lake and much more Western dude ranch style. Evening events like Western dancing, campfires with live music and hayrides are highlights of your Colorado Trails vacation.
Delicious meals on your dude ranch vacation are served in the lodge or at the campfire. The chef has a wonderful knack for turning out hearty meals that are enjoyed by all ages. We pay special attention to meal planning and preparation for our dude ranch Durango guests with dietary restrictions. No one goes hungry around here.
