This strenuous trail is only open for guided tours. Ideal for ATV’s, horseback, and snowmobiling, the trail heads gradually up and around the distinct rock outcropping on the east side of the river. In the late 1800s, the setting was the hideout for a group of bank robbers that escaped from a heist in Encampment, and selected this iconic spot for the protected hilltop and commanding views of the surrounding valley it afforded.
The hub and starting point for all of your adventures and activities is the Outfitter’s Center; the large barn across from the Lodge. Once you’ve settled in upon arrival, you are welcome to stop by to become familiar with your staff and begin scheduling some of your activities. We typically schedule activities in “morning” and “afternoon” time periods, in addition to “late afternoon” before the sun sets. Our Outfitter’s Center team is eager to assist you in scheduling all activities, in addition to providing gear, guiding, and tips for making the most of your stay. While most activities are “guided,” you may do hiking, mountain biking and some fishing “on your own.”
We are a working cattle ranch with roaming livestock and variety of wildlife, and therefore it is critical that all guests and ranch staff adhere to these important ranch rules and preparedness tips to ensure a comfortable and safe journey throughout the ranch.
