Grand Lake Stable

Grand Lake  **Grand Lake Stable will be closing Aug 23rd, for rides after this date contact Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby, CO (970-887-1999).**
Our Grand Lake Stable is located on the western edge of Grand Lake Village, gateway to the lightly-traveled western side of Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park. This location offers one very special trail called “THE RIDE,” which passes through flower-laden meadows, follows alongside mountain streams, and makes a dramatic climb high into the skies. It gives you the opportunity to see some of Rocky Mountain’s most beautiful country and view its raw, unchanged splendor away from the more busy eastern portion of park. We want your entire trip to Grand Lake to be great. If you plan to stay the night in this wonderful little town, Sombrero recommends The Rapids Lodge. The historic Rapids Lodge and Restaurant, located on the banks of the beautiful Tonahutu River, offers the best lodging in Grand Lake. Our horseback riding guests have such good things to say about The Rapids that we just had to put them on our website.

We Offer (click for details and prices):

  • The Ride: Two hours of fun, departing at 7am, 10am, 11am, 1:30pm, 4pm. Follows the Tonahutu Creek trail.
