Hawks Nest Ranch - Gunnison County, ColoradoLOCATIONLocated nine miles east of the quaint town of Crawford, the Hawks Nest Ranch is hands down one of the most strikingly beautiful parcels Colorado has to offer. This 160-acre, pure in-holding is directly bound on all sides by Gunnison National Forest lands (1.70-million acres) the West Elk Wilderness (176,500-acres) and has remained under the same ownership dating back to the 1940's. There is not another privately held parcel to the north, south or east for miles and public access to the Wilderness areas outside of the ranch are extremely limited. The end-of-the road location provides the ultimate in privacy and solitude. In addition to the virtual private use of the Forest lands and Wilderness, there are numerous nearby recreational attractions:Needle Rock Natural Area (5-mins.)Crawford Reservoir State Park (15-mins.)Black Canyon National Park (45-mins.)Blue Mesa Reservoir (largest reservoir in Colorado - 1 hr.)Aspen/Snowmass, Telluride and Crested Butte Ski Resorts (approx. 2-hrs.)From Crawford, primary retailers and restaurants are located in Delta (30-mins.), Montrose (1-hr.), Gunnison (1.5-hrs.) and Grand Junction (2-hrs.)LANDThe Through Line hiking and horseback trail (auto and ATV restricted) originates on the ranch and extends through the Wilderness and National Forest for endless miles, eventually connecting with points as far northeast as Aspen, Snowmass Village and Crested Butte. Access to the trail embarking from the ranch is only permitted by the ownership. A public access point to the trail exists east of the ranch on National Forest. The topography of the property ranges from level hay meadows, cottonwood lined creek bottoms and gently sloping foothills contained below the immense mountains that surround the property. The varying elevations, shapes, sizes and differing timber cover of the adjacent mountains are what establish Hawks Nest as a truly distinctive parcel. The ranch affords prominent views of the Big and Little Sand Mountains, Tater Heap, Saddle Mountain, Sheep Mountain, the Needle Rock formation and Grand Mesa to name a few. North and South Smith Fork Creeks are tributaries of the Gunnison River and flow through the ranch, converging near the western property boundary. The creeks are fishable year-round and contain good numbers of brook, brown and rainbow trout. Lone Pine Creek enters the property at the top of the northern pasture and serves as one of the irrigation sources. There are also (3) ponds that could potentially be stocked, if desired. The ranch contains (3) sub-irrigated hay meadows that produce some of the finest mountain grass hay and attract healthy herds of Elk and Mule Deer. Turkey and Black Bear are also frequently sighted. The property will convey with extensive water rights, all seller reserved minerals and is unencumbered by easements. Needle Rock Road is County maintained to approximately one-quarter mile from the ranch gate.IMPROVEMENTSBuilding improvements for the ranch consist of a well-built, hand-hewn log home that was originally constructed in 1922. The home has been consistently maintained by the owners and is of a two-story, five-bedroom, two bath design. Amenities include covered porches overlooking Smith Fork Creek, large living room with fireplace and partial basement. A restored primitive cabin along the creek provides extra room for guests and there are older out-building structures of varying utility (historic log-built storage sheds, blacksmith shop, lean-to and tack room) and a set of sturdy working pens. The property is powered by electricity and propane gas.Few places in Colorado are of equal to Hawks Nest Ranch. The vast Forest and Wilderness lands essentially serve as an extension to the deeded acreage when considering the prohibitive public access and a starting point of the Through Line Trail within the ranch boundaries. Live trout-filled water, abundant wildlife, pine and aspen forests and awe-inspiring panoramas are just a few of the attributes that make this property a once in a lifetime opportunity to own. To request additional information or schedule a qualified showing call Brent Hedrick.

LOCATIONHarmel's Ranch Resort spans just over 146-acres (+/-) along both banks of the Taylor River and is situated seven miles from Almont, Colorado in the highly coveted Taylor River Valley. From the property, Gunnison is located 16-miles south and the ski resort town of Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte about 16-miles to the north (via Jack's Cabin Cutoff and State Highway 135). From the Front Range population centers of metro-Denver and Colorado Springs, the property is within an approximate 2.5-hour drive via Cottonwood Pass (set to reopen in late summary 2019) following paving operations. Harmel's is located in the heart of the 1.672 million-acre Gunnison National Forest, which directly borders the property on the east and south. The surrounding area contains some of the most spectacular scenery and recreational amenities Colorado has to offer. The popularity of the Taylor River Valley continues to grow as evidenced by the number of up-scale and luxury subdivisions completed in recent years in concert with increased area tourism. Daily non-stop flights are available from Denver and Houston to the Gunnison-Crested Butte Airport year-round with Dallas added during the winter months.RESORTHarmel's Ranch Resort has been operated by the same family since 1958 and is a fixture of the Taylor River Valley. Families have enjoyed the property for generations with the following of new guests increasing annually. The resort consists of 37 rustic, yet modern and fully furnished rental cabins (including basic appliances) that have been placed along the banks of the Taylor River. The cabins can accommodate combined occupancy of 150 guests. In addition, employee housing is fully contained on-site with portions recently remodeled. Harmel's Stables is situated in the area recognized as the north pasture and contains a remuda of 40 trail horses that provide guests with the opportunity to see the Colorado back country at its finest. The Beaver Creek trail into Gunnison National Forest is accessible from the resort by a special use permit held by the current ownership (transferrable). The guest recreation room is located between the restaurant and reservation counter and provides wi-fi accessibility, billiards, games, business center and big screen tv seating area. Harmel's Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (menu or buffet) with an adjoining full-service saloon. Restaurant demand is serviced by a well-maintained commercial kitchen that includes walk-in freezer/coolers. A large deck extending just above the Taylor River at the rear of the restaurant and saloon provides the ideal outdoor dining and gathering experience. The general store and fly shop are stocked with basic merchandise, food and drink provisions, trout fishing supplies and provides anglers with daily updates on fishing conditions. Additional resort amenities and activities include; (2) stocked trout ponds, an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, sauna, kid's playground and large barbeque area that hosts Thursday night cookouts. The resort also hosts weddings, family reunions, other group-style gatherings and accommodates guided river rafting, fly fishing and rock-climbing excursions. From the resort, there is easy nearby access to motorcycle, ATV, mountain biking and hiking trails. Colorado GMU 55 is also known for its Mule Deer, Elk and Moose hunting.TAYLOR RIVERThe Taylor River originates high-up in the Elk Mountains just outside of the Maroon Bells Wilderness and flows along the west side of the Collegiate peaks before entering Taylor Park Reservoir. Taylor Park Dam, located at the south end of the reservoir, serves as the start of the tailwaters. The stretch immediately below the dam contains some of the largest rainbow trout at the statewide level with phenomenal fishing continuing all the way to the confluence of the Gunnison River and beyond. According to the owner, the approximate three-quarter mile stretch of the Taylor flowing through the resort has received a 16x Gold Medal rating from the State of Colorado. This portion of the river is also fed by the Spring Creek and Beaver Creek tributaries that flow down from the mountains to the north and south of the resort. Whitewater rafting and kayaking are also popular activities on the Taylor River. The 2,040-acre Taylor Park Reservoir just to the north offers the lake angler the chance of catching big Lake/Mackinaw, Brown, Rainbow and Cutbow Trout along with Kokanee Salmon and Northern Pike (Colorado Lake Trout record had been held by Taylor Park until 2007). Boat access is available at the Taylor Park marina.UPSIDE/DEVELOPMENT POTENTIALThe re-opening of Cottonwood Pass is expected to have an immediate impact on revenues as it serves as the most direct access route from the Colorado Front Range population centers. The historic operating season of the resort has generally spanned from May 15 thru September 30. Winterization of the water and septic lines servicing the cabins would further allow a new owner the ability to operate on annual basis in capitalizing on winter fishing, snowmobiling and over-flow skier demand from Crested Butte. The existing footprint of the resort may also be conducive to the addition of more cabins and/or VRBO oriented homes.In addition to the resort, there are approximately 110 additional acres of land extending to the north and south. The area recognized as the North Pasture (approx. 47-acres +/-) has been improved with a small stable and pens and contains (2) fishing ponds that are filled by irrigation ditches from Spring Creek. The balance of the property is contained within what is recognized as the Beaver Creek parcel (approx. 60-acres +/-) that is directly bound by the National Forest on the east. The Northern Pasture contains a higher percentage of level ground with the Beaver Creek tract mostly treed with rock outcroppings. The elevated portions of the Beaver Creek tract would afford exceptional down valley views to the west along the Taylor River. The transferable National Forest Service Use Permit would allow an owner continued private access to the Beaver Creek Trail. Interested parties should contact Gunnison County Community and Economic Development regarding the possible development potential of the larger property.The availability of land tracts this large, with the possibility of expansion and development potential in one of the most sought-after areas of Colorado, is exceedingly rare. Development of the areas extending north through Taylor Canyon to Taylor Park and to the south nearing Almont has continued in recent years as some of the most discriminate buyers vie for the ultimate Colorado has to offer. All owned water and mineral rights will convey, and the property is not encumbered by conservation easement. The property is available for purchase in whole or in one of three individual parts. All merchandise/business inventories and furniture, fixtures and equipment are included. Financial documentation of the resort operation can be provided upon the signing of a non-disclosure agreement.

$500,000  •  183.48 acres
Located on Cross Mountain in the Fossil Ridge Wilderness of Gunnison County are (18) contiguous mining claims totaling for 183.48-acres (Wahl, Gold Cleft, Gold Cross, Gold Eagle, Gold Coin, Yellow Diamond, Mountaineer, Gunnison, St. Louis, McCormack, Little Hattie, Red Cloud, Parkview, Cross Mountain 1, 2, &3, and Crown Point 1 & 2). The property contains dedicated Forest Service access via four-wheel drive/ATV roads and is seasonal due to winter snowfall levels.The combined site is an in-holding surrounded by designated Wilderness and Gunnison National Forest lands. This is a remote area of the county located approximately nine-miles from Taylor Park Reservoir and about 30-miles from the nearest town of Almont. The City of Gunnison and Towns of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte are a short-drive from Almont. The historic mining town of Tin Cup is situated approximately 10-miles to the northeast. Each of the claims are patented and have remained under the same ownership for decades. No mining has occurred while under current ownership, though a single shaft, reportedly at a depth of 550' (+/-) was utilized for the extraction of gold circa the mid-1960's (gold pricing at that time was $35.50 per ounce). According to the current owner, he was able to identify the vein the lode miners were following at the end of the shaft. The original opening of the mine shaft was collapsed to prevent public access and there are no known past milling operations or related environmental concerns on-site.Topography consists of level benches, steeply sloping hillsides and granite mountain top areas above timberline. Various alpine lakes and streams are in close proximity to the claims and are contained on public lands. Elk, mule deer and moose sightings are common. The Gunsight and Lottis Creek Trails originate near the Lottis Creek Campground in Taylor Canyon and extend in a southerly direction just to the west of the claims. Views from the claims are impressive and include an expansive portion of the Continental Divide to the east (Collegiate Peaks in the direction of Buena Vista and Leadville) and to the north (towards Crested Butte and Aspen/Snowmass). Taylor Park Reservoir is also visible to the north looking across Union Park.Due to the location within a designated Wilderness, the parcels could potentially be exchanged with the U.S. Forest Service in enhancing an owner's other land holdings.Note that Gunnison County GIS incorrectly maps the parcels as being located slightly further to the southwest of Cross Mountain. Please refer to the maps in the listing for an accurate visual of the location.

Pikes Peak and the surrounding area are rich in history and western culture. Teller Park Ranch, situated just 60-minutes west of Colorado Springs, Colorado, is a 570-acre tract that straddles the Teller and Park County lines. Few transactions of this size have occurred as many family ranches in the surrounding area have remained under the same ownership for extended periods. This property lies a short-distance south of the town of Florissant, and approximately 30-minutes to the west of the City of Woodland Park. Placed a short-distance west of Pikes Peak (a.k.a. "America's Mountain"), this property is truly a prime place to build your dream home or retreat and command world-class views and privacy. Year-round accessibility and hunt ability are also strong attributes. Over 36,000-acres just to the north are under the ownership or management of the Colorado Outdoor Education Center, the National Forest Service and the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, providing both buffers and public land accessibility.There are no easements in-place and the property is accessible from four different and private areas via maintained county roads. The property has not been hunted under the current ownership, though all big game animals common for the area are present. There are numerous vantage points from the ranch that afford views of Pikes Peak, the Collegiate Peaks and Sangre De Cristo ranges that are second to none. Typical views on the ranch range from open grass meadows, tree-lined draws, unique rock valleys and outcroppings and ponderosa pine and quaking aspen thickets. Current ownership has recently improved (4) springs with stock tank waterers and repaired or replaced all perimeter and cross-fencing. The combination of the springs, surface ponds and seasonal flow creeks throughout the property provide excellent water availability. Given the access options and number of premium building sites, the larger tract could be re-parceled and sold individually.Hunting on the property is good for elk, mule deer, black bear and mountain lion (see photos) with numbers expected to improve following the recent water improvements and pro-longed lack of hunting pressure. The area deer population is thriving with top quality bucks and good stable herd numbers. Turkeys and many other wildlife species inhabit the property and surrounding area. The ranch is located in unit 581, an over-the-counter unit for archery elk and 2nd & 3rd rifle seasons. Teller Park is situated in a draw area for mule deer and owners should be successful in drawing tags and receiving landowner vouchers, if desired.The property is also located just south of the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument: a 6,000-acre attraction containing a visitor center, walking trail and other exhibits.Mueller State Park is also in close proximity to the ranch and serves as an additional recreational amenity. Woodland Park is the nearest sizable city with a full-time population of about 8,000 residents and provides primary retail and lodging services. Florissant is a quaint town located just to the north and containing basic services. The historic mining town of Cripple Creek is essentially located an equal distance to the south and provides the nearest entertainment venue in the form of 12 casinos and various historic exhibits and museums.There is excellent fishing within one hour of the ranch with good stretches of the South Platte and the Arkansas Rivers being open to the public. There are also nearby lakes such as 11 Mile, Spinney, Tarryall and Antero Reservoirs in South Park. These lakes hold some of the largest trout in the state and also offer good success for anglers seeking pike. The ranch is approximately one-to-two hour's drive on good roads to the Monarch, Cooper and the Summit County Ski Areas. Co-brokers welcome.For more information please call Brent Hedrick.
