Planning ahead

Are there any activities I should make a reservation for ahead of time because they are generally sold out? Like to avoid disappointment.

boating, horseback riding, etc.

We are arriving July 11.

We've never made reservations ahead. But then again we like to exist w/out a schedule. But it probably would be good to call or email ahead and check out their schedule.

The ranger led hikes and activities don't need a reservation, except maybe a couple. But you can check on the NPS website.

Unlike Greenseeds, I am very schedule oriented! But I have to agree that you should be fine without a reservation for either boating or horseback riding. Winding Riving Resort is a great place for a trail ride or Sombrero Stables located right in Grand Lake.

If you have children ages 6-12, I highly recommend taking them to the Ranger Led program on Friday morning called A Walk Backwards at the Holzworth Historic Site. You do need to make a reservation for that at the Kawauneechee Vistors Center though.

Have a great trip and write a report when you get back!!
