Shocked and hard to speak is the best way to describe the reaction to anyone that has ever had the privilege of entering the Springer Ranch! If any ranch could represent a true hidden mountain gem, it would be the Springer Ranch! Discover this expansive 2,044 +/- acre ranch nestled in a serene mountain setting! Sounds of the distant bugles, birds, wildlife and livestock are the majority of interruptions one will encounter on the Springer Ranch!LandFor years I had driven the county roads that pass the Springer Ranch access roads and never in my life would I have ever expected what I would find the first time I arrived into the incredible valley blocked by the ridges from every direction. Comprised of 2,044 +/- deeded acres, the Springer Ranch also includes a 200 +/- acre BLM lease and an approximate 634 +/- acre State grazing lease; 320 acres of which have the grazing and recreational lease for a grand total of 834 +/- acres worth of BLM and State grazing leases. The layout of the land features  gradual to  steep ridges and well protected valleys that consist of  aspens, oak brush and pines with open meadows that ultimately incline into timber slopes with thick pockets. An abundance of springs that feed into numerous ponds with reservoir rights provide an ample water supply for the ranch. As a result of the  habitat, vegetation, and water, resident populations of elk and deer can often be spotted at any time while exploring the ranch, and occasionally a moose and/or bear! The ranch is accessed via a private road off paved and year-round maintained County Road 27 and CR 37. The interior roads are excellent for easy navigation through the ranch.          ImprovementsThe Springer Ranch is complemented by an immaculate single story, 4 bedroom, 4 bath home that was recently built in 2021 and spans across 1,948 +/- sq.ft. with an attached 2-car garage! Adjacent to the house is also a large equipment storage building and a small storage shed. RecreationLooking for things to do within the area? The Routt National Forest, located less than 30 minutes from the ranch, is a recreationists dream due to the alpine lakes, never-ending atv trails, hiking, camping, and other scenic attractions found within the mountains! Additionally, the Flat Tops Wilderness spans across the Routt and White River National Forest! Both Elkhead Reservoir and Stagecoach Reservoir are approximately 30 minutes from the ranch and provide opportunities year-round from fishing, boating, camping, and swimming in the warmer months, to ice fishing in the winter. The town of Steamboat also offers many activities such as rafting, fishing, mountain biking, downtown business, hot springs, and much more! As temperatures drop and snow falls, one can hit the ski slopes in Steamboat, or take a snowmobile and cruise through the many nearby mountains, including but not limited to Rabbit Ears pass, Black Mountain, Buffalo Pass, and those within the Routt National Forest and Continental Divide!  LocationLocated just off County Road 27, the Springer Ranch is only 15 minutes south of Hayden and the Yampa Valley Regional Airport, providing optimal convenience for locals and travelers! Steamboat Springs, located only 30 minutes east of the ranch is a year-round traveling destination as they are popularly known as one of the best ski towns across all of Colorado and have many unique attractions to visit in the warmer months as they are surrounded by mountains. Craig is located just over a half hour northwest of the ranch, whereas Oak Creek is just over 20 minutes southeast from the ranch! Vail, another town well known for its incredible skiing, is also within 2 hours of the ranch. Because of the privacy that the Springer Ranch features, one would never guess that the ranch is just a stone’s throw away from towns in nearly every direction! The Sellers agree to assist the Buyer in the transfer and application process for the State grazing/recreational lease and the BLM grazing lease. Final approval of any transfers or application approvals will only be granted and/or approved by the Colorado State Land Board and the BLM.
