40 Mile Mountain Ranch, a massive mountain ranch with over 40 miles of parameter boundaries located in 2 counties, 2 hunting units and ranging in elevations from 6200 ft to 8600 ft. Stacked with deep draw after deep draw with meandering creeks and springs. Each draw and canyon funnels up to open mesas and tree covered ridges making this one of the most diverse mountain ranches to ever come on the market! Bordering and nearly completely surrounding nearly 9000 acres of BLM lands, the huntable acres are over 16,000 acres plus thousands and thousands of acres on the southern boundary. Stretching along Highway 13 for nearly 10 miles, the semi-flat, sub-irrigated bottoms rise into deep draws loaded with turkey, elk and deer. As you reach the top at an average elevation between 8200-8600 feet, the land consists of dark timber-covered ridges with bottoms that are lined with wet lush bottoms along Cow Creek. The slopes of each ridge are full of oak brush with thick timber pockets dispersed throughout the open meadows, providing diverse habitat for the many species of wildlife this ranch is home to! The open-country among the tops of the ridges provide excellent vantage points of the lower elevations and different land formations in the distance. Excellent main interior roads that meander all the way to the top of the ranch and throughout the parameters are directly off County Road 5 and Highway 13.

County Road 5 and Highway 13 provide access to the lower portions of the ranch year-round. Furthermore, there is power available within the perimeters of the ranch that runs parallel along Highway 13. There is also a current possibility for solar lease on the ranch as well. With that being said, 40 Mile Mountain Ranch has development potential written all over it with highway access, power and backing to public lands the entire distance! Located in both GMU 22 and 32, the hunting opportunities on this ranch are what hunters' dreams are made of! Over-the-counter tags are available in multiple seasons for elks while the ranch qualifies for several landowner deer vouchers. Additionally, both GMU 22 and 32 have over-the-counter spring and fall turkey tags available. This is not a migration hunting ranch, the ranch is loaded all year! As a result of the diverse terrain and habitat with an abundance of feed and multiple water sources, the ranch not only provides hunting opportunities that are second to none, but has also been remarkable for livestock operations. Aside from the 7,044 +/- deeded acres, the ranch also includes the Cow Creek and Rees BLM allotments that encompass 18,757 acres more or less, together as one. The current and previous owners have had the ability to run 2,400 AUMs spread out over 7 months for cows. Historically, they start them in the bottom throughout the sub-irrigated meadows and rolling hills, move them up into the higher elevations as the summer goes on, and then bring them back down for the winter. The thriving town of Rifle, CO is located 20 minutes south of the subject property and offers convenient stores with gas stations, dine-in restaurants, grocery stores, downtown businesses, a hospital, private airport and numerous other recreational activities! To the north of the ranch, Meeker, CO is approximately a 20 minute drive and provides gas stations, a grocery store, and hospital. private airport and restaurants. Located approximately 30 minutes to the southeast of the ranch, Glenwood Springs, CO offers much of the same as Rifle, but has additional amenities and activities such as the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park and the Glenwood Hot Springs! For air travel, the closest airports that provide commercial flights are Eagle County Regional Airport (located to the southeast between Gypsum, CO and Eagle, CO) and Grand Junction Regional Airport (located to the southwest in Grand Junction, CO), both of which are approximately 1 hour from the ranch.
