Activities & Amenities
Pikes Peak and the surrounding area are rich in history and western culture. Teller Park Ranch, situated just 60-minutes west of Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a 570-acre tract that straddles the Teller and Park County lines. Few transactions of this size have occurred as many family ranches in the surrounding area have remained under the same ownership for extended periods. This property lies a short-distance south of the town of Florissant, and approximately 30-minutes to the west of the City of Woodland Park. Placed a short-distance west of Pikes Peak (a.k.a. “America's Mountain”), this property is truly a prime place to build your dream home or retreat and command world-class views and privacy. Year-round accessibility and hunt ability are also strong attributes. Over 36,000-acres just to the north are under the ownership or management of the Colorado Outdoor Education Center, the National Forest Service and the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, providing both buffers and public land accessibility.
There are no easements in-place and the property is accessible from four different and private areas via maintained county roads. The property has not been hunted under the current ownership, though all big game animals common for the area are present. There are numerous vantage points from the ranch that afford views of Pikes Peak, the Collegiate Peaks and Sangre De Cristo ranges that are second to none. Typical views on the ranch range from open grass meadows, tree-lined draws, unique rock valleys and outcroppings and ponderosa pine and quaking aspen thickets. Current ownership has recently improved (4) springs with stock tank waterers and repaired or replaced all perimeter and cross-fencing. The combination of the springs, surface ponds and seasonal flow creeks throughout the property provide excellent water availability. Given the access options and number of premium building sites, the larger tract could be re-parceled and sold individually.
Hunting on the property is good for elk, mule deer, black bear and mountain lion (see photos) with numbers expected to improve following the recent water improvements and pro-longed lack of hunting pressure. The area deer population is thriving with top quality bucks and good stable herd numbers. Turkeys and many other wildlife species inhabit the property and surrounding area. The ranch is located in unit 581, an over-the-counter unit for archery elk and 2nd & 3rd rifle seasons. Teller Park is situated in a draw area for mule deer and owners should be successful in drawing tags and receiving landowner vouchers, if desired.
The property is also located just south of the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument: a 6,000-acre attraction containing a visitor center, walking trail and other exhibits. Mueller State Park is also in close proximity to the ranch and serves as an additional recreational amenity. Woodland Park is the nearest sizable city with a full-time population of about 8,000 residents and provides primary retail and lodging services. Florissant is a quaint town located just to the north and containing basic services. The historic mining town of Cripple Creek is essentially located an equal distance to the south and provides the nearest entertainment venue in the form of 12 casinos and various historic exhibits and museums.
There is excellent fishing within one hour of the ranch with good stretches of the South Platte and the Arkansas Rivers being open to the public. There are also nearby lakes such as 11 Mile, Spinney, Tarryall and Antero Reservoirs in South Park. These lakes hold some of the largest trout in the state and also offer good success for anglers seeking pike. The ranch is approximately one-to-two hour’s drive on good roads to the Monarch, Cooper and the Summit County Ski Areas.
