About Rainbow Trout Ranch
Rainbow Trout Ranch is a family owned and operated dude ranch offering authentic western vacations. We are totally committed to providing a quality western experience for our guests, and we believe that our great staff is our most important resource.
Our magnificent and historic lodge is situated at 9000+ft in the spectacular Conejos Canyon in the southern Colorado Rockies, with the barn, horse pastures and river spilling out below. We are 5 hours south of Denver, 2.5 hours east of Durango and 2.5 hours north of Santa Fe.
Rainbow Trout Ranch is a first-class guest ranch dedicated to creating life long memories. We provide horseback riding, hiking, fishing, children’s and teen programs, and many other wonderful activities. We are very family oriented for guests as well as staff. Our guests return each year for the family atmosphere we have worked hard to create, and we have very high expectations of our staff to continue that tradition. We hire people who are excited about serving our guests, and who genuinely care about their work at the ranch.
A summer at Rainbow Trout Ranch is a unique experience. You have the opportunity to meet guests and staff from all over the world, and you are able to get to know them on a personal level. Your experience at the ranch will depend completely upon how much you choose to put into it. We work hard, and we play hard, and by the end of the summer you will have made lasting friendships, learned a variety of skills, and have memories that last a lifetime.
