Directions to Scullbinder Ranch

There is one stoplight in Mancos at the intersection with 160 and 184. From that light, go south for 10.9 miles on Country Road 41. CR41 starts as south main st and is 4 blocks through town. As you’re leaving town, there is a slight jog in the road on Montezuma St. (see maps). Other than that, you’ll drive straight all the way to the turnoff for our property, which is marked with a white paddle and a bike mounted on the fence. You will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere as you are driving down the road. you are. Scroll down for more detailed directions.

LONG DESCRIPTION…

  1. From Durango, head west on 160 to Mancos and turn left at the light onto South Main Street
  2. From Cortez, head east on 160 to Mancos and turn right at the light onto South Main.
  3. From Dolores, head straight through the light from 184 into Mancos
  4. Once you turn into town, you’ll drive five miles past five blocks of the town of Mancos, over a bridge. At the four-way intersection at the stop sign at the end of town, you’ll jog slight right and cross E Montezuma Street, and then immediately continue straight on County Road 41 (i.e. don’t take a hard left or hard right. Go straight).
  5. At five miles, you’ll hit a No Winter Maintenance Sign. There, you’ll start driving on an infrequently maintained dirt road for 5.9 miles. (If it rains/snows, the roads can be impassable without a high-clearance 4WD vehicle. We will communicate a shuttle plan if it happens to rain significantly, which is unlikely).
  6. After awhile, after you go downhill aways, you’ll pass a cabin with a bunch of little cabins on your right, then a yurt and then a BIG adobe house. There is a sign at the driveway for the big adobe house that says “Rance” with an arrow pointing to his house and another sign that says “Scullbinder,” with an arrow pointing down the road. Continue on down the road. You’ll pass another small tough shed on the right, and then you’ll reach a “driveway” with re
  7. Take a right onto our “driveway,” which is actually a ¾-mile road (you will not see our property/barn/cabin from County Road 41)
  8. Drive down that road, go up over a rise, and then you’ll see our cabin and then the barn.
  9. If you get to the Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Park gate on County Road 41, you’ve gone slightly too far. Just backtrack a few hundred yards.
