Located just over an hour’s drive, 42 miles west of Colorado Springs and at the end of a private road, KBO Ranch is 360± acres of raw, undeveloped mountain terrain and exceptional wildlife habitat. Views from the property are spectacular and include Pikes Peak, Mount Pisgah, the Collegiate Peaks, and the sun-soaked Sangre De Cristo Mountains. The land is vacant and undeveloped, while approximately 70 percent is tree covered with large stands of mature ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and aspen surrounded by meadows and oak-covered hillsides. The topography is varied and elevations range from 9,500 feet at the high bluff site, down to 8,550 feet in the secluded valley bottom. The current owners have developed extensive trail systems, only allowed ATV access, and limited the use of the property to hunting only. Large herds of elk and mule deer roam the property along with bears, turkey, and mountain lions. With over 3.6 miles of common boundary with adjacent conserved lands, this property will remain a private and secluded retreat.

KBO Ranch is one of the few large land parcels still available along Colorado’s Front Range. Situated at the end of a private road in Teller County, the ranch remains an utterly secluded wilderness, ideal for hiking and hunting across its rugged timber canyons and bluffs. The land remains naturally tree-covered with topography varying by 1,000+ feet, welcoming abundant wildlife from elk, deer, and turkey to bear and mountain lion that thrive on its compact diverse terrain.
The land is in pristine natural condition with extensive trails winding through the northern two-thirds of the parcel for ATVs and horses. Seventy percent of the property is covered in thick stands of mature ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, and aspen trees alongside lush meadows, oak-covered hillsides, and a natural spring. The space is ideal for development, a family get-away, or for preservation as a legacy ranch. It's both remote and scenic, looking out along the Continental Divide. With quick access to neighboring towns and the city of Colorado Springs, it is a rare and ideal investment for future owners to hold or develop.
KBO Ranch offers an unprecedented opportunity to own one of the last remaining ranch parcels along the Colorado Front Range. Undeveloped mountain terrain presents the chance to preserve the land or develop for personal or commercial use. Highlights include breathtaking views of Pikes Peak, Mount Pisgah, the Collegiate Peaks, the sun-soaked Sangre de Cristo Mountains, as well as a natural spring and conserved land boundary. This is an exceptional sporting retreat for the avid outdoorsman, investment buyer, or one looking to build a home for an escape.
