Staff get at least one day off a week. We encourage you to take advantage of all on-ranch activities on your days off. Please note: this is dependent on how many guests go on a ride, go shooting, go fishing, etc. and may not work out on your specific day off. There are lots of hiking and mountain biking trails as well as thousands of acres to explore around the ranch. We also have a fully stocked lake about 200 yards away from the ranch. We also allow up to 2 staff members to join the guests on the weekly whitewater rafting trip to Durango. Mesa Verde National Park is only 15 minutes away as well.
