One of our nation’s most visually stunning parks will be located right in your backyard when you are thinking about Colorado horse properties you can call home. Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the crown jewels of the National Park Service. Since 1915, when the park was first opened, horses have shared the trails with the park visitors year round.
When you take advantage of the fantastic trail riding available here you will soon see how dedicated they are to providing safe, beautifully maintained and easily accessible trails for riders to enjoy. They have taken great care in making sure everyone can enjoy this often fragile ecosystem. The National Parks Service provides a helpful brochure which you can download here.
The trail-heads that have room for trailers are located at:
Park East Side
Lawn Lake – Lumpy Ridge – Along Wild Basin Road
Park West Side
Colorado River Trail-head – East Inlet – Green Mountain
Did you know that the vast majority of Rocky Mountain National Park is designated as wilderness? Riding here offers it’s own set of unique challenges including unpredictable wildlife and weather, but there are very few other places in this country that offer this type of wilderness riding adventure.
You can expect to encounter many water crossings, especially during the spring run-off season. This time of year is also ideal for spectacular scenery.
When you call a Colorado Horse Property home you too can have access to over 250 miles of Colorado’s finest trail riding in Rocky Mountain National Park, which will be only a short driving distance from your home.
Contact us when you are ready to begin your search and you will find that our expertise in horse properties of the area will enable us to find just the right property that can accommodate your favorite type of riding. We can also introduce you to so many opportunities for you and your horses to enjoy all that America’s premiere horse country has to offer.
