Regarded as one of the finest trophy big game hunting and recreational ranches in Colorado, Big Mountain Ranch is a true sportsmans paradise. This inspiring 3,549± deeded acre ranch is situated adjacent to the national forest on the west slope of the Flat Tops Mountains, providing a beautiful setting for outstanding improvements and a wide variety of sporting venues. The multi-faceted property encompasses a rich landscape varying from the rolling drainages of the Piceance Creek valley up to the aspen groves, dark timber and lush meadows of Big Mountain at nearly 10,000 feet. With nearly 10 miles of common boundary with White River National Forest and BLM lands, the diverse topography and vegetation of the ranch results in very scenic views and excellent wildlife habitat that not only support large numbers of elk and mule deer, but draws them from the adjacent public lands. The ranch encompasses historical elk rutting grounds and attracts trophy-caliber herd bulls every year. The luxurious custom stone and log main home and guest house are recently constructed with exquisite finishes and offer first-class accommodations for family and guests. An extensive internal road network and trail system links the improvements and a wide variety of recreational activities for multi-generational enjoyment including numerous trout-filled ponds, indoor/outdoor shooting range, sporting clays course, gaming lodge, snowmobiling, horseback riding, biking and hiking. Located midway between Meeker and Rifle, the ranch is accessible via good roads less than 20 miles from I-70 and an excellent airport. The current owners initially chose this location over a decade ago due to its captivating setting, privacy and wildlife. Over the years they have painstakingly expanded the boundaries and completed extensive improvements to make the ranch the amazing turn-key sporting paradise that it is today.
