A rich western heritage, a fresh mountain breeze with star-studded night skies and beautiful, cozy sleighs pretty sum up what 4 Eagle Ranch’s sleigh rides are all about. With the aim to deliver an unparalleled rocky mountain experience, the 4 Eagle Ranch is sure to give unforgettable memories to every single guest.
The ranch was named 4 Eagle Ranch because it’s located just 4 miles north of Wolcott, and the remains of an eagle’s nest are rested in the ranch’s Cottonwoods, which is easily visible from their wagon and sleigh rides. The ranch also shares a rich history, having been owned by different families in the past beginning in 1885. The 4 Eagle Ranch Foundation bought the ranch from its last owners in May 2010, and has since offered the most fun of outdoor activities in all of Vail.
