The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain offers planned activities to suit many interests. Each day brings a new lineup of opportunities beginning with complimentary 8 a.m. family nature walks. Guided hikes on the resort’s 20-plus miles of trails are also available, and we love the 2.7-mile sunset hikes that culminate in cocktails at Ignite bar. Mountain biking can be done on your own or with a guide (borrow a bike at the hotel’s entrance). In addition, the resort’s restaurants offer a host of activities, with Ignite hosting cocktail classes every Thursday and Cayton’s Burger Bistro often offering specialty meals for tailgating or stargazing.
Kids ages 5 to 12 can enjoy loads of planned activities with the Five-Star hotel’s Dove Mountain Rangers program. For a half or full day, these junior rangers will explore the land around the resort through a variety of activities such as tortoise feedings, geocaching hikes or lasso lessons. Themes vary by day.
