Locale: 

The Frentress Ranch is located outside of Hayden, Colorado in Routt County, an area with many resources ranging from agriculture to a multitude of outdoor activities. The county is home to the Routt National Forest, Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area, Yampa River, Sarvis Creek Wilderness Area along with world-class skiing at Steamboat Ski Resort. Located near Hayden is the Yampa Valley Regional Airport, which provides year-round commercial airline service to the surrounding region. This is an area that remains agriculturally oriented upholding its western culture as well as providing many outdoor recreational opportunities.

The town of Steamboat Springs, 30 minutes to the east is a charming community with approximately 10,000 residents. Steamboat is a unique Colorado mountain town; influenced but not dominated by the ski area. The town still maintains its western heritage and retains its small-town character. Steamboat is removed from the congested I-70 corridor and the front range of Colorado such that it is not and will not likely become as developed as other Colorado resort areas. Many of the people who live, work and play in Steamboat do so because of the diversity and quality of the recreational activities. The Steamboat Ski Resort is world famous for its champagne powder and great tree skiing. The town boasts good schools, wonderful restaurants and a variety of shopping as well as a regional health care center.

General Description: 

With over a century of family ownership dating back to 1911, the Frentress Ranch has a long history of production, wildlife and stewardship.  The 6,650+/- acre ranch consists of 4,497+/- deeded and 2,153+/- state lease acres, all in one contiguous block encompassing the Yampa River corridor and the rolling countryside to the south.  

The majority of the ranch has historically been farmed but it is also well suited for grazing and feed production either seasonally or year-round.  Conservative estimates of capacity are 350-400 yearlings seasonally or 250-300 cow/calf pairs year-round, and could be higher, especially in wet years.  The combination of river bottom, brushy draws and cultivated land provide ideal habitat for mule deer and the ranch is known for producing trophy bucks, often scoring over 200 inches.  Hunting for elk and pronghorn antelope can be excellent as well.  Additionally, a wide variety of birds including sharp-tailed grouse, sage grouse, ducks, geese, bald eagles, golden eagles and other raptors are regularly seen on the property.  

Recognizing the critical importance of the quality wildlife habitat on the ranch, the Colorado Division of Wildlife funded a conservation easement on a portion of it, which also includes payments received under the Conservation Reserve Program.  Excellent wildlife viewing and hunting is complemented by fishing for large trout and northern pike with over 3 miles of frontage on the Yampa River.  Located just west of Hayden in Northwest Colorado, the ranch is within 10 minutes of essential services and the region’s commercial airport, and is within 30 minutes of full services in Steamboat Springs or Craig.
