The San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado boast the greatest density of 14,000 foot peaks in Colorado and the area has been nicknamed "The Switzerland of America."! As you hike, you can enjoy these glorious peaks from either vast vistas, or for the truly motivated, from their summits!
The ranch's property borders both the Piedra and Weminuche Wilderness Areas, which together comprise the largest road less area in Colorado.
From the ranch, you can enjoy scenic 1/2 day jaunts or all-day trekking adventures. Hike near streams, through wooded areas and mountain meadows, above timberline, or to breathtaking overlooks or peak tops.
We maintain written resources and maps at the ranch for self-guided hiking. Guided hiking can be arranged with advanced notice. Whether you just want an active break from riding, enjoy discovering wildflowers, hope to catch a glimpse of wildlife, or are ready to tick off several 14'ers, we've got you covered!
