Coal Mountain Ranch checks all the boxes when looking for a Rocky Mountain ranch. The ranch landscape is very diverse with rolling terrain of sage, aspen groves, lakes, and willows that follow Antelope Creek. The land and surrounding mountain views makes for a beautiful place. There is a total of 5 miles of intermittent and perennial streams on the ranch with half of the miles consisting of Antelope Creek which runs through the length of the property. The riparian areas on the property provide sustenance to many species of wildlife. The 3 ponds on the property provide habitat for many ducks, blue heron, bald eagles, and muskrats. The Willows along Antelope Creek provides shading to keep the creek cool for the cutthroat trout. Antelope Creek contains an important population of Colorado River cutthroat trout, a State Species of concern. Genetic samples taken from this population have revealed these are genetically unaltered. This is one of only a few streams in the area containing a cutthroat population with this level of genetic purity.
With the incredible habitat offered on the ranch, the hunting opportunities are unmatched, from trophy mule deer, elk, bear, mountain lion, and sage grouse. The population density of the deer and elk in the area is very high. When we first toured the property, we seen several groups of mule deer, and a couple herds of elk. The Routt National Forest is to the north, and State Land and BLM border the ranch, providing more access to hunting in the area.
