Located in one of the most desirable and secluded valleys along the front range, the newly listed 360 +/- acre Lake Pasture Ranch truly has it all. It offers prime wildlife habitat, landowner tags, four scenic lakes, end-of-the-road seclusion- all backing to thousands of acres of very remote National Forest.
The scenic ranch is located in Larimer County, Colorado, just 30 minutes from the town of Estes Park and within an hour and a half of the Front Range cities, including Denver, Fort Collins and Boulder.
Positioned in high mountainous country at the end of the road, the 360 acres is surprisingly flat and usable, with elevation ranging from 8,000 to 8,200Ft. The natural forested ranchland has an incredibly diverse landscape offering large stands of aspen trees, a mix of pine trees, all surrounding expansive and intermediate mountain meadows. Four natural lakes are the focal point of the property and offer a feeling of solitude and serenity. In addition, multiple springs and creeks can be explored and found throughout the property.
The ranch is a blank slate, yearning for a cabin or home to be built on it. The surrounding national forest has miles and miles of old trails to explore. Activities here include horseback riding, hiking, cross country skiing, hunting and much more.
Located in Colorado Parks and Wildlife Game Management Unit GMU 20, the ranch has great hunting results year after year. The hunting ranch for sale is simply a paradise for elk. Large elk herds with trophy animals reside here, as well as mule deer, turkeys, and moose. In addition, the lakes attract a plethora of birds, including cranes, bald eagles, hawks, ducks, geese, bluebirds and much more. The ranch protects thousands of acres of incredibly remote National Forest, a rare find and one of the reasons the elk hunting is so good. Come fall, a large number of park bulls will migrate to the property, significantly adding to the resident herd.
Mule Deer hunting is also good in this area. The ranch qualifies for landowner tags which are obtainable each year for elk and mule deer. In addition, tags can be drawn through the regular draw tags. The habitat for these animals is un-parallel, because of the ample water, feed and cover located within the ranch borders. Elk scoring 325 all the way up to 375 have been taken and are frequently seen on the ranch.
The entry road has a private gate, enhancing the seclusion. Year round access could be obtainable with good county and private roads leading to the property. A conservation easement blankets the land, protecting the four lakes and the land for generations to come. One building envelope transfers with the sale which allows the new owner to build their dream cabin or home.
The sale is part of a very historic ranch which has been in the same family since the early 1960’s. The portion which is being sold is the most sacred part of this historic ranch and is an incredibly unique offering. The exceptional habitat and location are only enhanced by the absolute gorgeous setting of this ranch. Whether you are riding the trails, exploring the trees, or perched up overlooking the ranch crow’s nest rock, this place will leave you speechless. This is truly a legacy property.
