Things to do at Kinnikinnick Ranch

The Trading Post

     The Trading Post is a re-creation of the Humphrey’s original Trading Post Antique Store at the corner of Soda Creek and Bergen Parkway. The shop contains antiques, vintage, collectables, and delightful local artisan items. Veiw photos of some of our items for sale here.  

Art in The Park 

     Art in the Park was created to tell Hazel Lou’s story, the Humphrey’s only child. She attended both the University of Colorado and the University of Denver in pursuit of art degrees. The art shows rotate artists monthly and are located in the Teacherage in the David Hoover Memorial Gallery. Gallery hours from 10:00 am to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Hike the Jim & Joe Trail

    After your tour, remember to take a hike on the Jim and Joe Trail. The Trail follows a meandering half mile path through the pine forest just behind the Humphrey home with four respite benches along the way. Pick up a trail guide at the trail head and our garden gnomes will tell you all about the native plants and their uses.  Photos from the trail are here.
