Colorado Horseback Riding Vacations
Winterhawk offers the finest in Colorado wilderness horseback vacations, including fully guided base camp or high country pack-in camps, and unguided high country drop camps for the best horseback vacations you'll ever have.
We operate on 250 square miles of the eastern Flat Tops Wilderness, accessible by horseback and mule pack string only. It is one of the largest wilderness areas and contains some of the most spectacular scenery in the Rocky Mountains. You?ll see wildlife like elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep, moose and bear, plus meadows of wild alpine flowers as your historical pack string of mules and horses winds its way through the mountain terrain.
All of our summer horseback vacations and services are strictly first class, with professional guides, packers, deluxe camps, high quality meals, and personalized attention to every guest. Our horses and mules are the finest in the business and our equipment is always in excellent, dependable condition. We?re able to customize our summer horseback vacations to fit your exact needs.
P.S. We're full-time outfitters and offer fall hunting for elk, mule deer, bear and mountain lion. We also operate an excellent Outfitters, Guides & Packers School for those interested in pursuing a career in the outdoor recreation industry.
Thanks again for considering Winterhawk. We look forward to talking with you soon.

What our Guests are Saying:
"Kevin, Cheyenne and I just got back from our horseback riding vacation at Winterhawk-and what an amazing trip! Everyone was unbelievably friendly! The staff at Winterhawk went out of there way to see that we enjoyed ourselves and were comfortable. They went above and beyond with my 11 year old daughter to see she had a good time. You couldnt ask for better horses to ride and the scenery was beautiful!! Camp truely felt like home. I would suggest this trip to anyone! We will be going back again next year. Thank you Larry for everything!" - Jennifer, MO
"The two days Ted and I spent at Winterhawk were more than likely the highlight of our vacation. Everywhere we went was so beautiful, but out in the wilderness those two days gave us such a great sense of peace and I know that a piece of both our hearts are still there.
Larry is a wonderful person and Ted and I were made to feel immediately at home by him and your daughter, Lauren. The professionalism of all the staff and the “at home feeling” they gave to us was beyond gracious. We truly felt like we had been there longer than we had. The accommodations were beyond our expectations and quite unbelievable given where we were. If you take all of those good things and put them together with the most spectacular scenery anywhere we’ve ever been, I don’t think words can tell you what we thought of Winterhawk. I’m not sure when opportunity will bring us back out there, but rest assured, we will be back.
The horses and the country out there did such wonders for Ted and I’m sure the feeling will stay with him for a very long time. I want to thank you for your preparation in having us out there, putting up with my bugging you about our accommodations when time got close, and making sure we got where we needed to be with maps and follow up phone calls. You have managed to make Winterhawk a place that is good for the soul and a place where people can go and leave their troubles behind." - Pat and Ted
