Another year, another return trip to CTR and another mind blowing experience. After a 10 hour flight from London and an 8 hour drive from Denver, the sight of the red CTR barn was welcoming indeed! Jeanne and the team make you feel so welcome, that for us as return visitors, it was as if we had never left. This... More

Pure fun! A week at Colorado Trails Ranch in the beautiful San Juan Mountains is the setting for a fabulous family vacation. For several summers my husband and I have traveled to CTR for the horseback riding and Art Week, so we were thrilled when our four rambunctious grandchildren were finally old enough to participate in the activities. We are... More

We just returned from our 5th visit to Colorado Trails, and this year was better than ever. There have been many improvements since last year and all of them were wonderful. Jeannie and her staff have to be the most accommodating hosts ever. They are the most "can do" bunch around. As always the food was excellent, the staff was... More

The quickest and easiest way to do justice to Colorado Trails Ranch is to say that absolutely everything is wonderful. The activities, location, food (definitely the food), staff, facilities and especially Jeannie who is lovely person doing an amazing job. We've had the best family holiday ever and are very keen to go back some time in the future. We... More

Our vacation to the Colorado Trails Ranch was truly unique. The people, the organization, area, atmosphere, food - everything really perfect. The selection of horses based on the preferences and skills of the individual guests was really great. In the end we did not want to give up our horses and would have loved to take them to Germany. You... More

This was a vacation we'll never forget! From the moment that Mike, the maintenance manager, picked us up at our hotel in Durango, to the day we left, we felt welcomed and appreciated. It's the first vacation spot that we actually didn't want to leave! Jeanne, the ranch manager, was such a joy to be around and was so organized... More

We had been here in 1981 so now I wanted my grandchildren to experience some memories of western experiences. They were ages 16-7 and there were activities for all ages as well as the adults. They were very accommodating to giving grandma shorter and levelier trail rides. the food was wonderful, as well as the staff and plenty of varied... More

This was our first trip to CTR. We have an 8 year old grandson who lives in Durango and decided that this would be a wonderful memory for him and his grandparents. The ranch was beyond any expectations! The staff was an integral part of our positive experience... from the ranch manager, Jeanne to the crew in the dining room,... More

Usually when you go on a vacation, there is always a 'but'. You know, it was terrific but..... The but might be the cost of food, $12 drinks at the pool, the difficulty in getting there, staff being unfriendly or something like that. At Colorado Trails Ranch, there is no "but". There were eleven family members in our group. Everything... More

We have been to CTR 3 times before and always had a great time. This time was even better as they built 3 beautiful cabins with big porches and living rooms.
