Tucked away in the Colorado Rockies is a 5th generation family operated cattle and guest ranch, where part of the old
west still prevails. Our family invites you and your group to be our personal guests and join us for mountain air, country
living and good times at the Lurk Ranch.
After your scenic drive up the Colorado River Road you will
find yourself at the Luark Ranch. This is where your western
adventure begins. Enjoy hiking around the ranch or up to the lake or
to the Colorado River and do some fly-fishing on your own.
Our private lakes are catch and release only. The views from the
ranch are breath taking and you can see Castle Peak, W Mountain,
Dome Peak, Middle Derby and Vail Ski area. The old logging trails on
King Mountain provide ample opportunity for wildlife viewing
and picture perfect photography. Our activities include horseback
rides, tubing on the Colorado River and trapshooting. A recreation
area provided with picnic tables, horseshoes, volleyball, and games.
Then gather round your nightly campfire for evenings of good
times under the stars. You might get lucky and hear the coyotes
howling in the night outside your window!
We will help make your stay very special and work with you to
make sure your group has a memorial western mountain adventure.
