High Country Trails: Horseback Riding, Hunting, Fishing Trips


Horseback Riding, Trail Rides 

High Country Trails -- Take a trip back in time and experience a true Rocky Mountain cowboy adventure!

Start your ride in the country at Shadow Mountain Guest Ranch near Granby, not in town. We take our time with each guest to make sure your experience is the highlight of your vacation. Our favorite trail takes you to the top of the mountain where you can see Granby, Hot Sulphur Springs and Grand Lake. Our trail rides can be as short as an hour and as long as 6 hours depending on your experience and comfort on a horse.

We must have at least 4 people on each trail ride. We can accommodate 20 people for horseback rides, and up to 100 for a BBQ.


HAY WAGON RIDES Pulled by a Tractor: Enjoy a 45 minute wagon ride with the entire family followed by a customized BBQ with the trimmings. Vegetarian meals available.
