Visited last week for a 2 hour horseback ride, what a wonderful experience! Our guide, John, was outstanding and taught us everything we needed to know. The ride was excellent and we saw beautiful scenery throughout the ride. Thanks to John and the Circle K management for a memorable experience.

We camped at Circle K, it was very relaxing by the river. There was good fishing, and ate trout almost every day! There were showers to use a short walk from where we camped, also water available, and ice to purchase. We enjoyed the stay.

My daughter and I were looking for a special get-away to celebrate her 40th birthday and my 70th. We both love horses and riding and get little opportunity to do it anymore. My husband and I had visited Circle K Guest Ranch about 10 years ago and had a wonderful time. So I looked them up on the Internet. The...

Great ride in such a beautiful country with an awesome guide who was very experienced. We would definitely go back. Next time a longer ride for sure, along with lunch. The horses were very tame and easy to guide them through the trails. Ajax is a great horse for all levels.

Very rustic. No TV. If you like a rustic no frills setting, horseback riding, horseshoes, and cafeteria style dining (no choices in entrée) this is the place for you. It is a beautiful area with a river running through it in the mountains. The rooms are clean, but very basic. Not a great bed or linens, but clean. I couldn't...

We are staying in Telluride and took a side trip to Circle K Ranch (less than an hour's drive - and a spectacular one) for a morning ride. What a lovely place with rustic cabins, dining hall, recreation/games, etc. along the river. We booked the day before for a 2-hour ride, not including getting a review of managing the horse...

While the cabin at the Circle K Ranch was nice, you’ll get a MUCH better deal right down the road at Priest Gulch Campground and RV Park. Priest Gulch Campground and RV Park offer multiple RV sites, 10 cabins and 2 hotel rooms in the lodge at a much better price than offered at Circle K Ranch. My husband and...

I did the four hour Medow picnic ride. The staff were great. Our wrangler John was knowledgeable & funny. The horses were well mannered and clearly well cared for. My only complaint is that our ride followed the same trail out & back. Given the vast surrounding forests & vistas, I expected we would have seen different scenery on the...
