Home at the Ranch
Two Bars Seven Ranch was established in the late 1800's-even before Wyoming became a state. Located on both sides of the Colorado-Wyoming border, it is less than 2 hours north of the Denver airport, but worlds away from the pressures of modern life.
As a guest at Two Bars Seven Ranch, you'll step back in time, discovering all the adventure that this 3,000-acre working cattle ranch has to offer.
Our dude ranch guests say we have something beautifully unique here and this is best riding and scenery they have ever experienced. While sitting at the breakfast table you can watch the wrangler bringing in the horse herd for the day's riding. Be a part of getting the horses ready and learn as much about horses and riding, as you would like to. When you go for a ride, there are always a wrangler and either cattle work or scenic riding. The rides are not generic "nose to tails" park rides. We don't ride single file and upper level riding is always available while the safety and enjoyment of all riders is our main priority. You could be moving the cattle to a new watering pond where we meet up with the rest of the ranch folks and spend the evening there with a chuchwagon dinner and fishing and a campfire.
Wildlife watching and nature walks are a special attraction. This is one of the best places for wildlife viewing, and for flowers and bird watching, where 56 birds species were counted. Our riders meet up with our non-rider nature lovers for lunch out in the forest or back at the ranch house. Grandma and grandpa may choose to come out with the lunch wagon to see what we are doing with the cattle.
As for day trips off the dude ranch, there is the Overland Trail and Cavalry Fort Laramie and old stagecoach stations to visit. We are right in the middle of a historical west and in close proximity to noted dinosaur remains and geological sites. Many books have been written about the Native American and Cowboy history. Much of the true west, as it was, is still here, plus some of the best whitewater rafting and ballooning, rodeos and country dancing and wild horse herds that are as large as 1000 horses. Can you imagine seeing 1000 horses? Look at our activity page for details.
We strive to keep the ranch both affordable and accessible to the wide variety of guests that we host here, including vacationers, family reunions, small conferences, retreats, summer camps and people with special dietary needs. If you have a question, we'll be happy to address it.
