Driving Directions to the Ranch

Depending on where you are coming from, you need to get to Highway 96, running East and West from Westcliffe, CO to Pueblo, CO.

To get to Highway 96:

From Colorado Springs, CO – take highway 115 South out of town all the way to Florence, CO. At the Carl’s Jr. fast food restaurant, turn left (South) onto Highway 67, toward Wetmore, CO. At Wetmore, turn right (West) onto Highway 96.

From Pueblo, CO – on the south side of town, Highway 96 goes west out of town toward Westcliffe, CO.

From Canon City, CO – Highway 50 is the main road in town. From Highway 50, go south on Mackenzie Road next to The Home Depot. Mackenzie Road dead-ends at Highway 115. Turn left (East) on Highway 115 toward Florence, CO. In Florence, take Highway 67 South toward Wetmore, CO. At Wetmore, CO turn right (West) onto Highway 96.

From Westcliffe, CO – go east on Highway 96.

Once you are on Highway 96, look for mile marker number 11. At this mile marker, there is only one road you can turn on, and it only goes north. This road is County Road 271, and it is a dirt road. Turn North on Cty Rd 271. You are now 6 miles from Eagles Summit Ranch. You will drive over three cattle guards. County Road 260 turns to the left after the second cattle guard. Keep going straight on 271, and after you cross the third cattle guard, you will come to a Y in the road. Stay to the left, which is County Road 265. If you look ahead on 265, you will see a 35 mph speed limit sign. Don’t make any other turns after this and you will run into the Eagles Summit Main Gate. Enter here and someone will assist you. See the enclosed map.

Note: If for some reason you veer to the right instead of the left at the Y, you will still run into Eagles Summit Ranch. It is just a few miles longer.
