The New Dude: At Colorado's Sundance Trail Guest Ranch, the horse might take a backseat to rafting, fishing, or hiking.

The Diamond J Ranch
CAPACITY – 16 guests
SADDLE UP – Rides fan out from the ranch, 13 miles east of Park City between the Uinta and Wasatch mountain ranges, and vary from two to eight hours—destinations include Mirror Lake at 11,000 feet. Sunset and overnight rides are offered.
OUT OF THE SADDLE – Swim, hike, and fish for trout at the Jordanelle Reservoir. Rent mountain bikes in Kamas and tear up beginner to advanced trails out your back door.
LODGING – The luxurious five-bedroom, Spanish-style lodge has two suites and three double rooms. It's flanked by another building with three bedrooms. Each has a private deck, kitchen, fireplace, and hot tub.
GRUB HIGHLIGHT – Stuffed cinnamon-raisin French toast. (Lunch and dinner are not included in the weekly price, but you can order dinners at the ranch.)
KIDS – There's no set program, but kids like feeding horses and day trips to Park City.
COST – Rent the five-bedroom lodge for $12,500 per week; one bedroom, from $2,500.
