Jack Creek Ranch is a natural paradise for those who love the outdoors and wildlife. Encompassing 276 acres of diverse landscapes such as pine and aspen forests, gamble oak woodlands, open meadows, and riparian areas along a seasonal creek, this property offers not only a rich biodiversity but also stunning scenic beauty. No doubt, with such diverse habitats, the ranch draws a multitude of wildlife species ranging from elk, mule deer, and black bear to mountain lion, turkey, and various additional species. It's easy to imagine the daily scenes of nature's grandeur playing out across the property, offering endless opportunities for wildlife spotting and photography. From a development perspective, the varied topography of the ranch is a treasure trove, opening up possibilities for various building sites. Imagine waking up to awe-inspiring views of the nearby mountains and the Vallecito Reservoir! Vallecito Reservoir—often referred to as the "Little Valley Lake" or the "Jewel of the San Juans"—offers a beautiful 12-mile shoreline for boating and fishing. The lake teems with life, home to trout, kokanee salmon, and both Northern and Walleye Pike. The ranch borders the National Forest and offers a gateway to one of the most picturesque mountain areas in southwestern Colorado. The private network of ATV trails makes large parts of the ranch easily accessible, offering avenues for a host of outdoor activities - be it hunting, hiking or horseback riding. Historically, the ranch has been put to productive ag use as well, providing grazing lands for cattle and serving as a hunting and recreational retreat for over six decades. Realizing its location just minutes from Vallecito Reservoir and within easy reach of Bayfield and downtown Durango, it's evident Jack Creek Ranch offers not just a secluded and natural getaway but also the conveniences of urban living. It is where you can experience the tranquility of nature while being just a short drive away from shops, galleries, museums, and gourmet dining destinations. This is truly an extraordinary opportunity for those seeking to combine their love for nature with the allure of a vibrant local mountain community.
