The Canyon Creek Ranch in San Miguel County has 3,247± contiguous deeded acres and excellent big game hunting, all just 25 miles from Telluride, one of Colorado’s most charming resort and ski communities. From atop the East Iron Springs Mesa, the ranch boasts spectacular views of the Sneffels Range of the San Juan Mountains. About two-thirds of the ranch is comprised of gently rolling pastures and meadows, with the remainder in aspen groves, ponderosa pine and oak brush--excellent habitat for the large elk, deer, bear and wild turkey that abound here. Bordered for more than three miles by the Uncompahgre National Forest, the property is both secluded and easily accessible year around via a paved county road. Spring-fed ponds provide necessary water for livestock and big game. Improvements are functional and include a caretaker’s home, guesthouse, several outbuildings, and working corrals. The perimeter and some pastures are fenced. There is no conservation easement on the property.
Three thousand-plus acres is considered a large holding in San Miguel County, and rarely does one of this size become available so close to Telluride, and almost never without a conservation easement. The Canyon Creek Ranch presents the discerning buyer with distinct opportunities in one of the most sought-after areas of Colorado.
