I had such a great ride here. Zack was our guide and he was awesome!! The views are unbelievable and he was more than happy to take pictures. I would definitely book with them again next time I'm in Estes Park.

A cool blustery snowy day, an animated guide, nice views, mounts suitable for a variety of abilities... glad we went. In an interesting historic venue near town... run by young passionate folks w/ equine expertise who are choosing to provide offerings that are getting more & more expensive to provide... well worth supporting. A great RMNP activity for all ages... And no, we weren't sore afterwards!

My fiancé and I went on a trail ride with Elkhorn Stables, during the week of Thanksgiving 2017. This was one of the best outings we've done in Colorado. I loved getting to see a side of Colorado that seemed undisturbed by humans. We got to see giant elk not more than 20 yards away. I would highly recommend anyone to this place. It was casual enough and made for an amazing experience. It is absolutely accommodating to both beginners and highly trained riders. Keep up the great work you guys!

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

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.
