Vagabond Ranch is surrounded by National Forest and is located on the Grand Lake Trail System. There are over 100 miles of groomed trails right from your cabin door that take you to some of the best snowmobiling in Colorado. The varied terrain allows for all types of riding including hill climbing, open meadows, tree riding or long excursions on the trail system surrounding Vagabond Ranch. The average snowfall is between 225 inches to 500 inches, depending on elevation and aspect. Hiring a guide for the day will guarantee powder turns and the adventure of a lifetime, exploring both trails and permitted riding areas with the USFS. Snowmobile experience is helpful in accessing challenging terrain, but there are plenty of riding areas for the novice. With hundreds of thousands of acres to explore, you'll be coming back for more.
