High Canyon Adventures @ Bair Ranch
|Visit our Web site www.highcanyon.com|
Authentic Western Colorado Experience!
High Canyon Adventures Guest Ranch, operated on the Bair Ranch, is in the mountains of Colorado's western slope, in the heart of Glenwood Canyon, only minutes from Glenwood Springs, Aspen and Vail. Ranch activities are close to I-70 with easy access, while the lodging is away from the Highway and feel remote and secluded; the best of both worlds.
Bair Ranch is one of Colorado's oldest family run working live stock ranches. Family owned and operated as a working live stock ranch since 1919. It encompasses over 5500 acres and miles of trails, surrounded by forest, canyons, and the Colorado River.
