Getting great reviews from our guests is such a treat.
Used to be we would respond to requests for references from past guests
by phone - providing an email address or a phone number so people
could share their experiences directly.
Thanks to TripAdvisor for making the process a bit easier!
There are several beautiful routes from the Denver airport to the ranch. Download our directions for details.
Public transportation options are limited. If you would prefer not to drive, try Green Ride Colorado, a van service that provides transportation from the airport to the ranch on a charter basis.
We tube down the Laramie, but if you are looking for some real excitement, check out Rocky Mountain Adventures. They offer river raft trips on various rivers around Colorado. Our location makes a raft trip during your stay a day. So we suggest you plan a trip for the morning of the day you arrive, the afternoon of the day you leave, or for another day before you visit our ranch. Our guests have had nothing but good things to say about the folks at RMA.
We run a very popular overnight trip on Bull Mountain when we have sufficient interest among our guests. It's limited to seven riding guests and includes some beautiful riding, comfortable tents, and great food cooked on an open fire.
However, if you're looking for a pack trip of longer duration we suggest you call our neighbor Jim Brink. A.J. Brink Outfitters runs pack trips in our neck of the woods and around Colorado. Call him at (970)435-5707 for more information.
