Ranch · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Covered Bridge Ranch is a family owned and operated ranch situated in the productive valley of Southwestern Colorado at the base of the San Juan mountain range. We are located near Montrose, Colorado and home to COLORADO CONIFERS, a wholesale tree nursery and Christmas tree farm. With over 45 years of tree-growing experience, Colorado Conifers is known for the highest quality trees, excellent customer service and a diverse range of species. Wholesale customers enjoy a unique buying experience as we tour you through our various fields where you are able to make selections from trees still in the ground.

We also welcome the public to our scenic 300 acre ranch for festive events such as the popular family traditions, Christmas Trees at the Covered Bridge and Pumpkins at the Covered Bridge.

Hay and grass-fed longhorn cattle are also available at the ranch—there is much to be discovered here!

  • I am not sure about the summer but when the snow is on the ground and your wanting to take your kids or grandkids on an afternoon delight.. This is it.  more »
  • We went for a Christmas tree last December. It was our first visit and we will go back every year from now on. Even without snow it was a wonderful experience from the magnitude to the gift shop.  more »
  • We have a tradition of going to the Covered Bridge every year for our tree for the past 9 years. We love everything about the experience from going over the covered bridge on the way in (a New England girl, this makes me feel like I'm home ), to visiting the farm animals (bring a treat of carrots or apples and make life -long friendships! ), to going into the gift shop and seeing the handcrafted gifts. Take a ride into the tree farm on a bale of hay and pick out your perfect tree, that you cut down, yourself! There is also a place to pick up beautiful fresh wreaths and garland (they used to let you make your own if you were so inclined, but I am not sure if this is an option anymore ). We finish off with roasting marshmallows at the fire, while they ready our tree to load. At the gift shop, where you pay for the tree, you get two marshmallows per person (we bring a bag of our own. ..tell me of a kid who is satisfied with just two marshmallows!?!? The reason for the 4 stars, instead of 5, is their (fairly new ) concession stand. Prior to tell would years ago, the Covered Bridge served hot cider and water as a gratis. Now they charge $2.00 per (very small) Styrofoam cup. With spending about $115 on the tree and another $45 to $80 at the gift shop, I feel like we've doled out enough for the outing. My kids love their cider and though I bought a couple of rounds last year (grumbling all the while), I passed on it this year and made the kids hot cocoa at home. All in all, it's a lovely time at the Covered Bridge and while I will skip the over priced cider, we will continue to make it a part of our holiday traditions.
  • This place is so amazing. We go here every year for the pumpkin patch and fun activities. This year we went on a school field trip with my daughter and it was so fun. The staff are super friendly and they have such cute animals!
