“Closed for winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

This was closed for winter However I did walk the grounds and see the animals and I spoke to a few employees who explained that this is a working ranch museum where in the open season everyone dresses in period clothing and performs the daily tasks of running a ranch just like it was done in the 1800's. I plan on visiting this when I get back to Colorado Springs this summer.

“Good place to hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We enjoy going in the evenings and walking on the trails. There are interesting buildings and things to look at. We have never gone when the actors and things are all happening. Go when it is quiet and enjoy the peaceful scenery.

“Ok but not as good as could be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The homes were nicely furnished and the guides gave interesting information and background stories. However, there was not as much going on there as there could be. I've been to other living history museums which had the feel of a functioning town with commerce and industry going on, and the people in character. The guides at Rock Ledge Ranch dressed the part, but talked like modern-day people. For the price there should have been a lot more.
