Black Mountain Colorado Dude Ranch is a full service working guest and cattle ranch located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies between Vail and Steamboat Springs. Rather than a rigid schedule we offer activities in the most flexible way possible. We want you to choose what you want to do, when you want to do it and whom you want to do it with. Unlimited horseback riding and instruction, longhorn cattle drives EVERY week, overnight pack trips, fishing, shooting, rafting and more. Swap stories in our fully licensed saloon after an awesome day in the Colorado high country.
