Enjoy the mountains as we near the peak of the fall colors in the Colorado Rockies. The already spectacular scenery at the Ranch unveils more glory in the Autumn. Aspens crown the mountainside in golden grandeur. Fall is exclusively for adults at our Colorado dude ranch. The tranquility and stillness are uninterrupted, whether you’re riding through the aspen forests…or curling up with a favorite book by an crackling fireplace.

Elk Mountain Ranch offers many of the same activities as summer, but takes a maximum 20 guests. With a focus on riding and relaxation…the adult-only weeks have proven to be quite popular.
