Getting to Three Forks Ranch: How to get to the west kept secret

One of the most attractive draws of Three Forks Ranch is the beauty and expansiveness of the land that straddles the Colorado and Wyoming border. It’s hard to wrap your mind around how much space encompasses 200,000 acres. It’s a vast and extremely large amount of land that is breathtakingly beautiful. 

The dirt road that leads here rolls through miles of Aspen groves. And, it’s not unlikely to have to pull your vehicle over for a herd of sheep or cattle in the road. Guests come to experience the slower pace of life, the serenity, and the delight in passing by the unique ranching lifestyle that many people in this part of the world enjoy. People come here to get away from it all, to experience what it’s like to breathe the fresh mountain air, and to feel deeply connected to nature.

Just 90 minutes from Steamboat Springs, a hidden oasis of paradise awaits you

The Ranch is about 40 miles north of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and about 36 miles east of Baggs, Wyoming. Click here for directions for getting to Three Forks Ranch. We are a world away from “city life” and offer tens of thousands of pristine, private acres of outdoor playground space to explore.

Guests fly into the Yampa Valley Regional Airport (HDN) located in Hayden, Colorado near Steamboat Springs, Colorado aboard a commercial or private flight. Upon arrival, we meet our guests at the airport and whisk them away to the Ranch in first-class style. Our brand new shuttle vans are decked out with luxurious leather seating, a satellite TV, and a cooler filled with snacks and beverages for the journey. We also have plenty of cargo space for your luggage aboard The Three Forks Ranch Shuttle. 

We do not offer direct transportation to or from Denver International Airport. However, we are happy to arrange a shuttle bus between Steamboat Springs and Denver through Alpine Taxi.
