This was our first dude ranch experience and it was a great time during horseman's week. Even with their season winding down and a reduced staff, the service and activities did not suffer. Activities were properly spaced, horses and their care great, food excellent, and accommodations we updated and comfortable. My non-riding wife learned to fly-fish and landed 32 trout... More

We love Colorado Trails. We have had many visits, and each year it gets better and better. The updates and renovates have been first rate. Every year the core staff, Jeanne, Brett, Mike and Brian are fabulous, but they really know how to find exceptional seasonal staff as well. One of my favorite things about CTR is that the gusts...

I traveled to CTR for horseman's week. I loved it there. It's beautiful country, the people were wonderful, the food was amazing, my cabin was comfortable, my horse Stormy was the best. When I say it's all in the details I mean that every effort is made to make your stay at the ranch the best it can be. Every... More

It does not require many words. This year we came to CTR for the third time. And we will be back! Team, horses, food, cabins, atmosphere, feeling, management, program: Outstanding, a class of its own.

Stayed a week in mid-August. Food, facilities, activities, staff, management, horses, fishing and scenery were all excellent. Lots of wildlife on the property (rabbits, turkey, deer, hummingbirds, etc) and a petting zoo with big rabbits and small goats for the kids. Experienced, friendly and fun counselors for the kids allow the the adults to enjoy the activities separately from the... More

The other reviews are accurate based on our recent experience. But this may be the most significant factor in why this was a fantastic family vacation. The first three days we saw the children(ages 8 - 11) in our group (3 families) in the morning, maybe at lunch, and at the end of the day. This allowed the adults to... More

This was our second year in a row to the ranch. We have enjoyed it so much We are hoping it will be an annual trip. FOOD: Chef Brian did an amazing job again. He made great meals for our son with food allergies, vegetarian meals for me and accommodated many other guests with dietary restrictions. BABYSITTING: There were 3... More

Our vacation at Colorado Trails Ranch was fantastic! We had never been to a guest ranch before, and didn't really know what to expect. The ranch was great, the staff was incredible! My wife and I went horseback riding once or twice a day...while my wife had taken some riding lessons, I was completely inexperienced. The wranglers at the ranch... More

Just returned from a visit to CTR and it will be a vacation to talk and laugh about for years to come. The ranch is located close to Durango but far enough out to take advantage of the beautiful unspoiled high country. It is surrounded by mountains, streams and rivers that offer limitless adventures for those who dare. The horseback... More
