Badger Creek Ranch is nestled between the San Isabel and Pike National Forest with hundreds of thousands of acres of majestic scenery to experience either on foot or on a mountain bike. Just a short hike from the ranch Badger Creek offers a quiet, undiscovered fishing spot with waterfalls and cool refreshing pools. The Arkansas River is also close and is world famous for its fly fishing, white water rafting and kayaking. Ask us for a list of activities and guides nearby.
For an afternoon or day excursion off the ranch the Royal Gorge Area offers breathtaking views from the train ride along the gorge floor, or from the USA's tallest suspension bridge, (hanging almost 1,000 ft above the canyon floor) looking down at the raging Arkansas River.
The area is rich in mining history, from ghost towns to communities that are still thriving. Cripple Creek’s heritage is filled with romance and the stories of those seeking their fortunes. Today you can seek your own "gold mine" in Cripple Creek's many casinos.
