Summer Activities

Miners Creek Ranch Fly Fishing
  • Hiking.  Miners Creek Ranch is surrounded by national forest.  Set out east from the front door of the cabin and hike over into town for lunch or supplies.  Or give a day to climbing San Luis Peak (14,014 feet).

  • Jeeping.  Set out on Miners Creek Road to access a plethora of amazing jeep trails.  Take the Historic Bachelor Loop Trail just behind the house or climb to the Continental Divide.  Follow the Rio Grande to its source at the top of Stony Pass then take the world-renowned Engineer Pass into Lake City or Ouray.  If you don’t come with your own 4-wheel drive vehicle, Jeep rental is available through a number of local companies.

  • Horseback Riding.  Take a long ride to remote views of waterfalls, high country lakes, and Rocky Mountain peaks pyramiding to the horizon.  Bring your rod and reel and fish headwaters loaded with cutthroat trout.  Guided horseback riding available through a host of local companies.  

  • Birding and Wildlife Viewing.  Pack your binoculars in your daypack and spend a day observing big horn sheep or moose, lynx, and a host of birds and other mammals.

  • Dining and Entertainment. From spices to flatware and pots and pans, Miners Creek Ranch offers everything you’ll need for a self-catered stay.  But on the days you feel like going out on the town, you’re just a hop, skip, and jump to Main Street Creede.  Whether looking for bar food or classic high country Mexican cuisine, Rocky Mountain Gourmet or pizza, Creede offers an array of delightful restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, and barbecue stands. Spend a day underground at the Miners Museum or explore the eclectic shops and galleries lining Main Street.  At night, gather with the rest of the town at the Creede Reparatory Theatre (http://www.creederep.org/) and enjoy classic musicals and local productions alike.
