RTR is special. My daughter and I have spent over 12 summer vacations at the ranch-it's that good. Set on the Conejos River next to Colorado's San Juan Wilderness area, RTR has everything you could want in a dude ranch vacation. It begins with a relaxing, friendly western culture cultivated by the VanBerkum family that quickly engages every guest. The food is excellent and plentiful, served in the lodge, by the pool or by the river. Evenings are filled with cowboy singer, Will Dudley, dancing or storytelling. The fishing is excellent. But the activity that my daughter and I enjoy most is horseback riding in the San Juans. We are horse owners, and we love the RTR all day treks to views above 11,000 feet, or loping on trails through Aspen and Ponderosa forests, it doesn't get better. Jane and Dave VanBerkum do an outstanding job of ensuring that the skills of the rider and the horse match. One way you can judge the quality of a vacation experience is by the number of repeat visitors. You will find that RTR is at the top of the repeat list when it comes to dude ranches... We now live in Colorado and still come back to RTR.
