Beaver Meadows Ranch is located just 6± miles north of Pine Junction and 46± miles from downtown Denver, Colorado. This pristine and private 713± property is nestled between national forest land, a state park, and other private property, making it a quiet and undisturbed mountain paradise. One of the benefits of this location is its proximity to Denver, Boulder, and other cities on the Front Range.
The property rests on a piece of land bordered to the north and west by Pike National Forest.
North Elk Creek babbles through the northeastern corner of the property, making its way to Elk Creek farther south. Private parcels hug the eastern and southern borders, and the southeastern tip of the property connects to Staunton State Park, where a deeded easement provides vehicular access to and through the park.
Wide-open meadows are interspersed with thick forests, rolling hills, and craggy outcrops. The property features owner-maintained roads from Hwy 285 all the way to the property’s single-family dwelling.
One reason Beaver Meadows Ranch is so remarkable is its pristine privacy without sacrificing proximity to the Front Range. Life on Beaver Meadows Ranch means enjoying the wide-open spaces Colorado is known for, as well as the chance to experience Denver’s many diversions.
Even from the remote and private beauty of Beaver Meadows Ranch, the draw of downtown Denver is easily accessible. Just over an hour’s drive away, the state’s capital city is a nearby destination for cosmopolitan creature comforts like art museums, concerts and theater, professional sporting events, and high-end shopping. Denver International Airport is less than two hours away.
Staunton State Park
One of Colorado’s newest state parks is just a stone’s throw from Beaver Meadows Ranch.
Opened to the public in 2013, this 3,828-acre area (which encompasses the namesake Staunton Ranch) traces its history through the centuries as homesteads, ranchland, a logging operation, and a sportsman’s club. Today, mountain bikers, hikers, tent campers, and rock climbers flock to the area to enjoy the varying terrain, including low meadows, wetlands, and rocky cliffs.
Guanella Pass Road is known on the Front Range as a must-see drive for viewing fall foliage. From Beaver Meadows Ranch, it’s just over an hour to the pass and a three-hour loop through Georgetown and back down through Evergreen.
Beaver Meadows Ranch sees four distinct seasons and plenty of sunshine during each one. Summer temperatures average in the high 70s, while winter averages hover in the high 40s.
The northern edge of the property descends to 9,200 feet in elevation near North Elk Creek and climbs to 9,800 feet on a rocky crag boasting mountain views in all directions.
