A group of friends and I booked out the whole ranch in July and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Julie and Tim offer a warm welcome and make you feel at home. They are exceptional horse people and have many interesting tales to share. I was recovering from an injury when I arrived but they were very accommodating and I... More

Julie and Tim and their staff left no stone unturned in making sure we had a wonderful time at their ranch. The location is unparalleled with breathtaking scenery all around. The ranch is rustic yet they supply amenities such as a wood-fired hot tub and shower, river-refrigerator for cooling beer, comfortable beds with fluffy down comforters, and awesome food. The...

I hesitate to write a review as I don't want to give away one of my new favorite places but.....it's awesome. Having no cell phone service or internet was so good for the soul. It's what I needed. Being able to unplug was so refreshing. Julie and Tim have a great thing going. No electricity or plumbing and they get... More

Six of us just spent 3 nights at Warden Rock Outpost. 4 ``mature``(all over 50) women and 2 young adult females and our 6 horses. We were all treated to great food, great beds and wonderful company. Warden Rock is a truly outback experience with all the domestic work done for you. You get to enjoy and take care of... More

I had great time it was a beautiful place and a great experience! The rooms are nice and the beds were super comfy, one of the best sleeps I've ever had. The food was always good too and I never had to worry about getting enough to eat! The riding was great and the people working there were awesome!

In September 2014, a good friend and I had the great pleasure of staying at the Outpost at Warden Rock for six days. Let me begin by saying that every word of the excellent and detailed review by Tabix titled, "“If you love riding, this is the place to go in the Rockies" is true. Therefore, I won't repeat all...

The Outpost was created by Tim Barton who packed in the Rockies all his life, who taught horse physiology in college, who is a farrier, etc. His wife Julie Leavens also plays a great part in this outfit (administrator, massage therapist, excellent guide and teacher for gaiting, webmistress).    There are about a dozen cabins for the guests and staff....
