Colorado's Outdoor Family Adventure Experts
High Canyon Adventures, operated on the Bair Ranch, is in the mountains of Colorado's western slope, in the heart of Glenwood Canyon, minutes from Vail, Aspen and Glenwood Springs. Ranch activities are close to I-70 with easy access.
Family owned and operated, our ranch encompasses over 5500 acres and miles of trails, surrounded by forest, canyons, and the Colorado River.
We offer guided horseback riding, ATV tours, and snowcat tours for your enjoyment. We also have chuckwagon suppers.
SHORT RIDES FOR THE NOVICE RIDER: riders are offered lessons on basic horse handling and operation. We teach the Do's and the Don'ts of horsemanship to ensure the enjoyment and the safety of each rider.
LONG RIDES FOR THE EXPERIENCED & ADVENTUROUS RIDER: Ride into the mountains on a scenic trail. Lunch or dinner may be provided at the half way point in the ride or at the end.
Overnight Rides are also available (dinner and cabin Included).
Looking for a family activity for young and old alike a HAY RIDE is always fun for the entire family or group.
We have the best terrain for ATVs in the state. Every time is different . . . Every ride, an experience of a lifetime. Ride single or double on one of our Polaris Sportsman 500CC ATVs. Tours Include: Professional guide, Polaris ATV, helmet, drink, outdoor attire is appropriate (jeans and boots are recommended). Scenic Tours are available 7 Days a week. Call for Reservations. We Welcome Groups, and Special Events.
SnowCat trips run during winter months - pending adequate snow. The scenic tour covers terrain that would normally be inaccessible during the winter months. Wildlife is abundant on the ranch and deer and elk sightings are possible. We offer a Canyon Tour (2 hour) and a Mountain Tour (3 hour).
Meals are catered and served by an authentic "Old West" chuck wagon as well as cook cabin. Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners may not be included in some packages but are all available upon request. Private Dinner Parties can also be arranged for all occasions: reunions, weddings, corporate retreats and meetings or other special occasions. Our Western BBQs are very popular for company outings or just for a good time.
