ranch hand ride

Cowboy up!

With trails accessed only by foot or horseback in the Uncompahgre Wilderness, this is the ultimate Colorado horseback riding experience.

Trails gain elevation until you reach the top, surrounding you with mountain peaks. To the east, Mt. Sneffels and to the west, Chimney Peak and Court House Mountain, the setting of John Wayne's True Grit.

Stop for a quick break to stretch your legs and check tack. Descend to the creek bottom where the horses get a well-deserved drink of water. Four hours in the saddle can be quite intimidating and will surely leave you a bit sore, but the experience is well worth it.

  • Adventurous first timers okay!

  • Ages 11+

  • $175/rider
