Dude Ranch Family Summer Vacations Offer Something for Everyone

Other Ranch Facilities

We've Got A Full Line Up of Vacation Amenities

There is a lot more to our dude ranch than horseback riding, great food and cabins. The layout of the ranch is like a small Western town from the past. The ‘downtown’ area buildings include the Assay Office, Trading Post, Opera House, Blacksmith Shop, Jail, Saloon, and School House.

On the outside this fun assortment of structures has the sense of a little fantasyland. They aren’t just there for their ambiance though; these buildings contain many of our ranch facilities. Where else would you expect to find services, supplies, snacks and administration besides on Main Street? It may look old and quaint, but you’ll also find wireless internet access in this area.


The Lodge is central to the ranch community.

Most meals are served in this building’s dining room. Morning coffee and newspapers make The Loft an early day hot spot, as does the WiFi access for guests who brought their laptops. We also have a computer and printer in the Loft for adults to be able to check email, print boarding passes and review photos taken during the week. So if you don't bring your laptop, you still have access to the Internet.

This area also serves as an adult lounge and has a pool table for a little grownup fun. Its overstuffed chairs and comfy couches also make a great spot to read or chat.


Other Important Facilities

These include our heated swimming pool and hot tub, exercise room, archery and rifle ranges, free laundry room, basketball and volleyball court, and traditional horseshoe pit.

Main Street on Colorado Trails Ranch

  • The Opera House: In the old West, every town had a dance hall known as the Opera House. This is where you’ll be kicking up your heels and tapping your toes doing square dancing, line dancing and other activities.
  • Ruckus Room: This is a place for kids to hang out and play games like ping pong,air hockey, and pool. It is located next to the Trading Post. This addition is also home of our small lending library.
  • Soda Fountain: You’ll love this little spot, located inside the Trading Post building. It’s not a reproduction! We have a real old-time soda fountain from the 1930’s. This is a favorite with all guests, regardless of age, and super popular on hot days. They serve up old fashioned milkshakes, banana splits and other ice cream treats.
  • Trading Post: The main area of this large building is where you’ll find our dude ranch emporium. This is the place you can buy fun stuff like T-shirts and cowboy hats or needed items like sunscreen – and lots more.
  • Fly Fishing Center: Located inside the Blacksmith Shop you’ll find rods, reels, waders and all the other supplies needed for fishing excursions.
  • The Assay Office: Centrally located, Colorado Trails Ranch’s office is easily accessible by guests to get answers to questions and special needs met.
  • Guest Telephone Room: Cell phone service can’t be relied on at Colorado Trails. We set aside this special spot so you can easily call home or check in with the office on a free long distance landline. We do have a network extender that allows cell service with Verizon to work around the “main street” area.
