Chico Basin Ranch | Colorado Springs

Just outside Colorado Springs, between the peaks of the Colorado Mountains, is the Chico Basin Ranch. You imagine yourself a true cowboy as you gallop on your horse across the prairie of eastern Colorado and actively participate in this cattle farm. The Chico Basin Ranch is run by a family and introduces you to life on a ranch. There are never more than six guests at a time, so you can enjoy the landscape full of streams, ponds and wild animals in peace. You can participate in activities daily between April and October.
