Controlling over 11 miles of private roads, several miles of creek bottom filled with Native Colorado Cutthroat Trout and thousands of acres of BLM lands this is the ranch everyone wants but never can find because they simply don't exist! The ranch consist of 3167 +/- deeded acres and 9267 +/- leased acres. Ranging from aspen covered ridges at 8600 feet to pine covered canyons down to 6600 feet.The diversity of this ranch is unmatched. Beavers have been busy for years on this ranch creating deep pools of fresh mountain spring water filled with multiple species of fish. Mountain Springs flow freely from the more than a dozen canyons feeding off of the valley floor creating good water and rich habitat throughout the ranch. Bubbling springs flowing from out of the earth and the mountain side are the headwaters of this great small fishery. Almost every canyon and draw have large springs feeding the creek along the way and the further down it goes the larger the creek becomes. Elk have found several areas of sub surface water creating large deep wallows.
The elk hunting is phenomenal as this area has produced over 360" bulls in an over the counter unit in the years past. The ranch is loaded with turkey! Located in hunting unit 31 the ranch does qualify for several deer vouchers on a yearly basis.
The ranch is located approximately 1 hour from the town of Grand Junction and approximately 1 hour from the Powderhorn ski resort. The Grand Junction Regional Airport has flights by several airlines such as American. Delta, United and Allegiant. The Grand Junction population in 2018 was estimated to be just over 60,000.
This is raw gorgeous Colorado ranch that one could just sit back and enjoy or improve into endless possibilities! This ranch is not encumbered by a conservation easement but would be a top candidate to receive one if a Buyer so desired. Contact Lonnie Gustin for a qualified showing!
