Families seeking an authentic Western dude ranch experience need look no further than Colorado Trails Ranch, in spectacular Durango, Colorado near the border with New Mexico. Celebrating the property’s 50th year as a guest ranch, the team at Colorado Trails has fun for all ages down to a science. The horseback riding program is exceptional, with rides for all speeds, ages and abilities. Kids have their own camp for different age groups, including teens, with scheduled activities each day. There’s a huge list of activities for time out of the saddle, including world-class fly fishing with instruction, hiking, whitewater rafting, shooting, archery and much more. There are wonderful excursions accessible from here too, including Mesa Verde. Guest cabins have been remodeled from top to bottom and are ideal for families, with multiple bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out. Ranch vacations seem expensive at first blush, but Colorado Trails is a great value for the amenities, service and level of personalization included.
