The majority of my Colorado road trips have involved camping, peak bagging, and other rugged endeavors. One of my most memorable journeys, however, reminded me that you don’t have to always rough it in the Rockies. My friend and I embarked on a weeklong adventure starting in Denver and heading west through the Arapaho, Gunnison, and San Juan National Forests, staying at some of the state’s top ranches along the way. Sure, there was adventuring in the outdoors. But there were also delicious meals, natural hot springs, and deluxe spa treatments to keep our week nice and balanced. Here are the best experiences our road trip pit stops had to offer.
