Zapata Ranch—Try your hand herding cattle
Zapata Ranch offers one of the most diverse landscapes in the United States with grasslands, forests, wetlands, and sand dunes. For a true Colorado experience the ranch features working ranch vacations, and educational programs centered around their bison herd. Horseback activities can include working and moving cattle, exploring the surrounding area including Great Sand Dunes National Park, or overnight pack trips into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Daytime activities include nature hikes, fly-fishing, birding, wildlife watching, geology tours, and more. But it’s not all roughing it; gourmet food is on the menu and guests are hosted in a comfortable lodge where massages and yoga sessions are available throughout the week.
