More experienced mountaineers will enjoy linking up Mount Wilson and El Diente on a technical traverse along a ridge that remains over 13,500' for...

Horseback Riding

You may find some of the best views in Colorado are while riding the trail on horseback at Circle K Ranch. This method of travel provides for a peaceful, yet adventurous experience during your stay.

More adventurous and longer rides may be combined on a 3 hr + basis that includes lunch. The wranglers even offer corral rides for those 6 years and under. There’s no more of a classic way to spend a morning or...
