Colorado Summer Pack Trips

1-8 Guests • Drop Camp • Public/Private • Guided



We specialize in quality horse pack trips for small groups. We believe in offering a high quality experience to those who join us for a truly enjoyable and unforgettable adventure. When you arrive at our ranch you leave behind the worries, time constraints and concerns of the world as you cruise into “horse time.” All of our trips incorporate horseback riding with spectacular scenery, friendly, knowledgeable guides, mountain-wise horses and good hot grub.

Groups sizes are limited to four to eight folks depending upon the type of trip, Don’t worry if you are a group of one or two, give us a call and we may make a group around you or just take you. Also, do not worry about your level of riding experience. Our camp, which is located at an elevation of 10,300’, is reached by a 14-mile horseback ride. Camp is well equipped with a large canvas kitchen/dining tent. Our nylon summer “cabins” are large enough to sleep two people comfortably, with cots and foam pads.

During the pack trip will explore and enjoy the Weminuche Wilderness. There is excellent fly fishing in nearby streams, a few high mountain lakes that we can ride to and fish. There are also stretches of the Continental Divide that we can ride along. Enjoy opportunities for incredible scenic & wildlife photography. The amount of horseback riding will be tailored to fit you!
