Hiking and Biking at the Colorado Dude Ranch

Whether you want a scenic hike to old gold mines, a challenging mountain bike ride or something in between, we offer a variety of terrain.  We have miles of trails from easy, moderate and strenuous for you to experience the beauty of the outdoors.  Our Colorado guest ranch is all about getting outside and reveling in the awe-inspiring surroundings.

Our hiking guide will design a program that will gradually get you acclimated to higher altitudes and as you feel more comfortable, our treks get more challenging to suit your abilities and desires.  Otherwise, you might prefer to join us on our weekly, family-friendly sunrise hike to Lizard Rock for a breathtaking view.

If mountain biking is more your speed, we have a great line of rental bikes available through Team Telecycle located in nearby Woodland Park, Colorado (40 minute drive).  Though the cost of renting the bike is an added charge, we’ll provide the transportation of your bike to and from the shop free of charge if you rent the bike for the entire week or if you rent the bike for a half-day on Thursday (1-5 pm).  If you choose to rent the bike for a full-day or a half-day (other than Thursday), you will need to provide the transportation to and from the shop. Prices are reasonable and include a bike helmet, seat bag with extra tube, patch kit and a pump.  Please feel free to check out the Team Telecycle website at http://www.teamtelecycle.com/index.html.

$21.00- Half Day (1-5pm)

Whether your desire is to horseback ride, hike or mountain bike, Tarryall River Dude Ranch is truly nature's playground.  We hope you will get the opportunity to explore and experience these beautiful surroundings.
