Nestled up between 8500-9000 ft. in Dolores County, Colorado, this Western Slope +/- 320 acre generational family holding, referred to as Pond Rock Elk & Cattle Ranch, has been a hunting paradise and summer cattle production ranch for generations. This BGU’s offers 2 Over-the-Counter rifle elk seasons, and the property qualifies for 1 landowner buck tag annually, with the all-time world-record mule deer, the Burris Buck, taken nearby. Land There’s a live spring-fed creek and a spring-fed pond tucked back into the prettiest stand of aspens and oak-lined meadows, as well as 2 additional dirt water tanks including the breath-taking Pond Rock Tank, holding large numbers of elk, mule deer, bear and blue grouse. The property is off-grid, landlocked by large private holdings and accessed via a private recorded 1.5-mile easement, so this secluded holding is very protected and private! No public land poachers or the orange jacket army on your fence line in season! Improvements A historic cabin (no electric, water, or bathroom), needing lots of TLC but with good bones, might have potential for upgrading. History Pond Rock Elk & Cattle Ranch is located on Ground Hog Reservoir Road, between Dolores and Telluride, CO approximately 90 minutes to Durango and 90 minutes to Montrose. Be it a family legacy ranch for get aways and reunions, a private & secluded hunting retreat, or just a location to store and protect some equity during the current stock market crisis, Pond Rock Ranch might be that mountain retreat you and the family are looking for. This holding is currently in Ag status so taxes are very low. Currently the hunting rights for 2022 are available. Call or email today for more information and a qualified showing. Co brokers welcome!
