About 4UR Ranch
The 4UR ranch is an exclusive guest ranch nestled in the San Juan Mountain range of southwest Colorado. For many generations we have been providing a first class family vacation with a variety of activities, and amenities. Fly fishing is one of our main attractions. The ranch has over 6.5 private miles of Goose Creek, and 1.5 miles on the Rio Grande River. We have four fly fishing guides on staff to give our guests the ultimate experience on our waters with lessons and guided trips. Our horseback program allows our guests to have a personalized learning experience at the barn. From lessons in the high country, to work in the arena, our wranglers have made this program a fun learning experience. Our philosophy of Natural Horsemanship helps us cater to novice and experience riders alike.
One of the most important programs on the ranch is our Woolyboogers (Kid’s Program). It is our goal to incorporate western outdoor activities, that most children do not get to experience. Woolyboogers have their program from 9:00am to 5:00 pm, with several evening events. Horseback riding is the focus of the program, other activities such as swimming, hiking, raft racing, and other outdoor festivities round out the rest of the week.
We are very fortunate to have a heated swimming pool, and a natural hot springs pool. Both are used by our guests and staff, and provide a very relaxing experience.
Our Staff is the single most important factor of our guest’s vacation experience. Hard work while having a great time is our goal.
