The Porter Ranch—Colorado Legacy Ranch for sale near Aspen & Glenwood Springs   Large acreage Western Colorado ranch with abundant water rights for sale   Large ranches in the Aspen/Vail/Grand Junction triangle do not often come up for sale, but the Porter Ranch, located just a few miles south of the town of New Castle, is now on the market. The ranch has excellent assets, including 3,526 deeded acres, superior water rights, beautiful year-round climate, irrigated hay meadows, world-class hunting, easy access to I-70 and airports, and a blank slate for future development.   Centrally located on the I-70 corridor between Grand Junction, Aspen, Vail, and Glenwood Springs   The Porter Ranch is easily accessed from Exit 105 on I-70, which parallels the Colorado River as it flows through New Castle and then down to Rifle and Grand Junction. From I-70, it is a short 11-minute drive up Alkali Creek, or County Road 312, to the ranch gate. Glenwood Springs, with its famous Hot Springs Pool, Fairy Caves, and tourist attractions, is just 15 minutes further up I-70, and Aspen is a total of 1:15 from the ranch. Vail is 1:17 from the ranch. Grand Junction, with its regional airport, Colorado Mesa University, Country Jam, world-class hospitals, and excellent concert venues, is about 1:25 down I-70 from the ranch gate. There are four different airports in fairly close proximity, including Aspen, Vail (which is actually Gypsum, under an hour from the ranch); Grand Junction; and Rifle airport, which doesn’t have connecting flights, but can land large jets. Rifle airport is less than half an hour from the Porter Ranch. Premiere Colorado Hunting Ranch This mountain ranch has tremendous hunting assets and income streams for elk, mule deer, bear, turkey, and more.

The ranch can easily book 4-6 hunters per season for broad opportunities hunting on the ranch and neighboring BLM lands. Contact broker for info regarding hunts & income streams associated.   The Porter Ranch is located at a pleasing elevation for year-round enjoyment   Many Western ranches are located at high elevation, where heavy snowfall can make life difficult. Winters are long and frozen, involving feeding hay to hungry animals, plowing snow, and waiting for spring. Fall comes too quickly and it’s winter again. With the Porter Ranch headquarters at 6,000 feet in elevation, the ranch has an enjoyable year-round climate. Spring comes earlier, fall arrives later, and the ranch enjoys a long growing season. The upper reaches of the ranch top out at 7,800 feet, so there are zones that have a longer winter, but generally speaking the weather is pleasant on the Porter Ranch.   Water resources on the Porter Ranch for sale—excellent water rights for ranching or future development   As the saying goes in the West, “whiskey’s for drinking; water’s for fighting,” because water is such a precious resource. The Porter Ranch has several different diversion points from local creeks to water the ranch, as well as a large reservoir situated on the top of a ridge overlooking the ranch. Fed by mountain snowmelt, the reservoir holds about 1,200 acre feet of water that is entirely dedicated to the ranch. Further, the Porter family installed a network of underground water pipelines to irrigate close to 800 acres of the ranch with pressurized sprinklers, which makes for an easy job of irrigating and results in quality hay production.
