Circle Divide Outfitters is a full-service outfitting service based out of our century-old ranch, RC Guest Ranch. We are licensed by the State of Colorado and permitted by the National Forest Service to operate on the Rio Grande National Forest in the San Juan Mountains and the Weminuche Wilderness.

summer camping horsesFor three generations, Circle Divide Outfitters has been taking guests into the heart of the Weminuche Wilderness. We know this land, and we know the importance of taking care of the land and insist on "leave no trace" camping and travel in the wilderness.

We provide full-service trips or drop-camp services. Our full-service trips include a guide and camp cook. We can provide trips into some of the most beautiful and remote locations the area has to offer. We also provide scenic camping trips and day trips for photographers and anyone who just wants to experience the backcountry with a camera.

For drop-camp services, we can drop you off for your own private stay. We will pack your backpack to a designated camp where you can start your journey or stay, and we will come back to pick you up. You are welcome to hike or ride to your camp.

We own our own string of well-cared-for and well-trained mules and horses. And because of our experience with our animals and in the wilderness, we are proud of our safety record. Your life could depend on our skills and abilities. We will keep your trust.

Contact us for rates and availability. Wilderness travel is carefully limited to a specific number of days and heartbeats. We recommend that those who want to experience the wilderness book their trips in advance.
