Tours at James Ranch


Out of an abundance of caution and a desire to comply with all Colorado State and Health Department guidelines, James Ranch Tours are cancelling our ranch tours for the summer of 2020. We are endeavoring to re-think our tour processes and accommodations in order to comply as well as consider guest safety for the summer of 2021.

The self-guided tours around the James Ranch Market and Grill are still available for guests to take at their leisure.

Self-Guided Tours

When James Ranch Grill is open the Self-Guided Tour is always available. This free Self-Guided Tour follows a path around the dairy barn and terraces with designated stops to read the booklet narrative.

The James Ranch Self-guided tour booklet can be found in the market. The walking tour takes 15 to 20 minutes and leads you around the green terraces, up to the milking parlor, by the terrace chicken coop, to the baby goats, next to the market garden; all the while educating you about the ways in which the families of the James Ranch manage and steward their land and animals.
