Estes Park Ranches

Estes Park Dude RanchesAre you looking to get a feel for the Old West and a true Colorado mountain experience?  Come enjoy a family vacation and experience the way life used to be at an authentic Estes Park dude ranch.

Estes Park ranches offer a plethora of activities that will keep you and your family busy and entertained. Spend the day exploring the trails on horseback. With anything from a leisurely stroll through the meadows to a more thrilling faster paced gallop through the mountains, there is something for all ages and ability levels. Other cowboy skills like roping are available for lessons if you want to get even more of the Old West experience.

You can also spend the afternoon fishing in the mountain streams. Take a fly fishing trip with an experienced guide and learn all the basics of fly fishing or try your luck in a fully stocked pond on site.
There are plenty of hiking trails in the area. Take an early morning hike through the trails and bask in all the beautiful views and scenery Rocky Mountain National Park has to offer.

With many children’s programs available at most ranches, there is something for everyone. This allows parents to escape on an afternoon getaway and enjoy some alone time in the mountains.  

If you are in need of a day to relax and rejuvenate, you can spend an afternoon in the Colorado sun beside the pool at your Estes Park ranch.

Some of the Estes Park guest ranches even stay open through the winter. You can take a horseback ride or sleigh ride through the snow filled meadows and forests taking in views of snow-capped mountains and maybe even catching a glimpse of local wildlife.

There is something for everyone, so come enjoy all there is to do and see at one of Estes Park’s many authentic dude ranches. Come saddle up and get a taste of how life was in the Old West on your next Estes Park vacation!
