The Colorado Trail, Durango

#2 of 8 in Trails in Durango
You arrive on Sunday afternoon or evening and get settled in for your ranch vacation. As you sit down to dinner – which might be prime rib, fresh asparagus, home-baked bread, a tossed green salad and a mouthwatering homemade dessert – you start to get it. As staff member after staff member warmly welcomes you, as you settle in to your cozy cabin, and as you look out at the mountains, you really get it. This week is going to be something extraordinary.

That’s no accident. We work hard at making sure that your vacation here is more than you could have expected.
A visit to The Colorado Trail represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Durango visit planner to plot your vacation.
