We have gone riding here several times, including with our 10 and 7 year old granddaughters. We always had a wonderful time.

What a great ride! We were so impressed with the views. The ranch has a feel-good vibe, as the horses are all rescue horses. We can’t wait to come back!

I had an amazing time with my family there! Everyone was super friendly and they made sure we felt safe on the horses. The horses were kind and sweet, they knew what they were doing and didn’t give us any issues. Definitely worth it and I will definitely go back for the advanced trail. (:

The guides were very friendly and pointed out figures you could make out on the distant mountain tops. The horses were well trained and easy to ride. Very scenic, relaxing, and fun.

My boyfriend and I loved our steady ride up the mountain to a picturesque view of Esetes Park valley with the Stanley Hotel in the distance. Our rangler and guide was fantastic. He gave us some great local tips and handled the horses very well. This was a beautiful way to take in the scenery of this incredible area. We saw deer and other wildlife along the way. The grounds are historic and rustic, snd the horses are happy, beautiful, and well fed. I’d highly recommend this tour if you are looking to mix up your activities in Estes Park.

From Our Editors

In 1874, a few cowboys were presumably struck by the view of what is now Estes Park, so they decided to settle there to raise their barn and breed their horses. Over time, the lodge became known as Ranahan Ranch, named after the many elite cowboys who worked it. More than 100 years later, JT Adams, a former Marine looking for a quiet, beautiful piece of the world, bought the lodge and accompanying horse business.

JT and his staff preserve a lot of the lodge's old traditions, such as raising horses, training folks to ride Western-style, and leading horseback tours on the surrounding trails. Although the trail rides provide spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, they do more than just take riders to picturesque vistas. The guides peel back the veil of history and discuss the important events that shaped the park, mountain range, and surrounding communities. At the end of each tour, JT invites visitors to the ranch's yard or the Hayloft, the barn's built-in venue with a bar and dance floor. There, he strums his guitar and sings some of his original country songs before sending visitors home with sore thighs and new memories of the sights and sounds of the mountains.
