Not Up for Dude Ranch Adventure? Vacations at a Trot
Don’t think that not being the adventurous or excitement seeking type makes family ranch vacations not your cup of tea. Colorado Trails Guest Ranch has something for you too! We offer a variety of activities, from leisure to adventure, and everything in between. Here, you are welcome to skip the more adventurous activities and relax, enjoying the beauty of nature.
You won’t feel left out because there are still a lot of activities that you can do here. We offer guided morning and afternoon hikes through the beautiful forests that surround our guest ranch. The Loft Lodge is a popular spot, where adults can enjoy a coffee, access email on their laptops via WIFI and read the newspaper in the morning. It’s a great place to meet new people or dive into a good book, which can be borrowed from our library.
During the day, you can take a dip in our heated swimming pool. It’s a great place to spend your day, enjoying nature all around you. The Colorado Trails Guest Ranch is the perfect place to have a horseback riding vacation. For those who aren’t too interesting in river rafting or power tubing, horseback riding is a great alternative. A ride through the San Juan National Forest is extremely relaxing, and you will be able to take in the stunning scenery that surrounds our guest ranch resort. The menus each day will delight your taste buds too, as our chef provides our guests with the most delicious food available in Durango. All food is prepared fresh in our ranch kitchen, and delivered right to you. You will be amazed at the taste and quality of our food. Our ranch guests are always sad to have to leave such great food behind.
When the sun starts to go down, there are even more leisure activities for you to enjoy at our Colorado guest ranch. We often have Western line dancing and square dancing, held in the Opera House. All ages are encouraged to come and join in on the fun. Ice cream socials are also an extremely fun event for all ages. After a hot day out horseback riding and swimming, ice cream is the perfect way to cool down and wrap up the night. There are also off ranch activities that you can enjoy. Many guests enjoy visiting Durango during the evening to watch the Victorian Melodrama.
If you came for all inclusive family vacations, your children will have spent their day having fun just right for their ages in the dude ranch kid’s program, so the evening is the perfect time to come together as a family. We have hayrides and campfire sing-alongs, where you can enjoy each other’s company and make friends with other guests as well. Some evenings, we treat you to a family cookout under the Colorado stars.
Maybe you’ve spent the entire day with the whole family, and now you and your spouse want a little alone time. We plan candlelight dinners for couples, while staff entertains and takes care of your children. We take care of you and your children for the entire duration of your trip.
