The essential guide to dude, guest, and working cattle ranches worldwide.
Crawford, CO USA
The ranch straddles nearly three miles of the Smith Fork River Valley, nestled in among the West Elk Mountains and the Gunnison National Forest. From the porch of the ranch house or decks of the cabins one looks across the lush meadow to towering mountains. Down valley is the Smith Fork's signature icon, Needle Rock. The ranch's privacy and intimacy is paramount - with miles of largely untraveled hiking and riding trails for the exclusive enjoyment of Smith Fork Ranch guests. Seven ponds (two with hammocks for a mid-afternoon snooze) and the Smith Fork itself offer fine trout fishing. SFR is also known for its five-star cuisine and extensive wine cellar.
