$13,500,000 • 4,269 acres
The North Fork Valley Ranch consists of 4,269 +/- acres (per 2019 survey), 90 miles from Aspen, 50 miles from commercial air service in Montrose, and 5 miles north of Paonia, Colorado. Surrounded by public land on three sides, the ranch is well protected while retaining year-round, county road access.
The property also boasts fantastic deer, elk, and bear hunting with over-the-counter elk tags available. To improve suitability for livestock operations, over 16.5 miles of new fence has been constructed since 2017. Two cabins with domestic water rights, telephone, and generators provide lodging. The main cabin has been completely refurbished and is quite comfortable. Additional building sites have power available and overlook the West Elk, Ragged, and San Juan Mountain Ranges.
The ranch features year-round live water with approximately 50 ponds having been reworked, redug, or created. The property is vegetatively diverse with Gambel Oak and open meadows interspersed amongst mature aspens, timber stands, and wetlands. To improve wildlife habitat, over 475 acres of low-lying brush has been cleared and reseeded into highland pasture.
The North Fork Valley Ranch has been refurbished, replanted, re-surveyed and fenced as part of a million-dollar vegetation mitigation/improvement project. Nothing has been left undone and this turn-key property is ready to be sold.
