Directions to Sylvan Dale Ranch
Sylvan Dale Ranch worry free access!
October 2016: We are pleased to report that road closures for the US Highway 34 rebuilding project do not affect access to Sylvan Dale from Loveland or any points east. (Please, DO NOT use the US 34 detour!) Instead, follow the easy directions below.
We look forward to your visit!
Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch is on the beautiful Big Thompson River, conveniently located about an hour from Denver in the foothills of the Front Range. We are just 10 minutes from Loveland and 30 minutes south of Fort Collins.
PLEASE NOTE: GPS units and mapping sites / applications (e.g., Google Maps, Apple Maps, Mapquest, etc.) can lead you astray if you use our mailing address to navigate to Sylvan Dale. Please see detailed directions and location map below.
Sylvan Dale is between mile markers 84 and 83 on US 34. As you near the Ranch from the east (Loveland) watch for the covered wagons on the right (north) side of the road. The wagons will signal that you are approaching the Ranch Entrance. Turn right (north) through Ranch Entryway and down the hill past the Sylvan Dale Horsebarn and Arena, and across the Big Thompson River. Turn right at the old silo and follow the signs to the Office, in The Heritage.
If you miss the first entrance, not to worry. Just turn right just before the Dam Store, on County Road 22H. Signs will lead you past the Sylvan Dale Horse Barn on County Road 31D and north across the beautiful Big Thompson River. Take the first right after the bridge and follow signs to the Sylvan Dale Ranch Office in The Heritage.
If you are coming to Sylvan Dale from the west, immediately east of the mouth of the Big Thompson Canyon the historic Dam Store is on your left. The entrance to Sylvan Dale is immediately east of the Dam Store, left on County Road 22H. Take a second left at the Sylvan Dale Horse Barn and follow the signs across the Big Thompson River, turn right at the silo, and follow signs to the Ranch Office in The Heritage.
