With a close proximity to the popular and growing college town of Laramie, the location is ideal and the climate relatively mild being at an elevation of 7300-7400ft above sea level. The property is blessed with an abundance of water, functional improvements, good hunting and fishing as well as having a proven cattle/grazing operation in place. This ranch has a a windmill that has been converted to a solar well and new metal 40x56 shop/outbuilding. Operational & Recreational Resources:Spring Creek Ranch is a multifaceted property with a proven agricultural operation boasting exceptional native grasses with a mix of both upland prairie and sub irrigated hay bottoms making abundant opportunities for grazing and hunting. The ranch is currently run as a small but productive cattle operation and has great infrastructure already in place. There is a 2BR ranch home, detached garage, numerous equipment/hay barns, as well as livestock facilities for calving, working pens, etc. Overall, Spring Creek Ranch is well-equipped and functional for most grazing operations. Perhaps the most attractive asset to the ranch is Spring Creek which originates on the deeded land and arises from a high-volume spring only a stone's throw from the ranch headquarters. With a steady volume of clean and cold water coming out of the ground year-round the potential for fisheries development along Spring Creek is certainly feasible especially given the fact that there is electricity at the headquarters where an aeration system could be installed. Around the headquarters there has been some work done to create a few small fishing ponds with improved spillways where the Creek then meanders and bends throughout the ranch for approximately 1.5 miles. Two other named streams make their way through the ranch; Shell Creek and Dry Creek providing great sub irrigation and feeding a 40+/- Acre shallow lake which is a wildlife magnet. Spring Creek Ranch sits in a wildlife filled alpine valley surrounded by large private ranches making the hunting fantastic. The ranch meets the standards for landowner tags which an owner would receive two Elk, two Deer, and two Pronghorn tags annually with good populations for each big game species. The game management unit for Elk is unit 8 which is a limited draw area with a season running from September (archery) through the end of January giving you the flexibility to hunt migrating and wintering herds of Elk which are seen on the property regularly. Overall Spring Creek Ranch is a rare combination Ranch with exceptional operating and recreational features in a highly desirable location. With minor adjustments to the grazing practices and facilities along with some emphasis on wildlife and fisheries development the value and utility of Spring Creek Ranch is endless.

The mighty Rio Grande River is the heart and soul of the Flying W Ranch. This Colorado “River Mountain Ranch” is an exclusive one-of-a-kind property located in Rio Grande County, Colorado. The ranch sits on the western edge of the San Luis Valley, the largest alpine valley in the world. A rarity for river ranches, this ranch includes acreage along both sides of the Rio Grande River. Internal access to both the north and south banks of the river is achieved by way of a unique single-lane steel truss bridge that was formerly a Rio Grande County bridge. Including more than two and one-half (2.5) river miles of the Rio Grande River and more than one and one-half (1.5) creek miles of Pinos Creek, this ranch is a recreational water paradise. The entire 2.5 miles of the Rio Grande River are classified as Colorado Gold Medal Waters by the Colorado Division of Wildlife, a designation for trophy trout waters. Less than 4% of all rivers and streams in Colorado have achieved this lofty Gold Medal status. One of the most unique attributes of the river throughout the ranch is the lake effect section, consisting of over one-half (1/2) mile of the river located along the lower section of the river corridor. This lake effect on the flowing Rio Grande River is caused by the Rio Grande Canal dam/diversion, located just below the lower river corridor property boundary, which holds back the entire width of the river. This provides the opportunity to paddle and row both upstream and downstream due to the slower moving water. Big water! The mighty Rio Grande River flowing through the Flying W Ranch contains the highest river flows of any section of the Rio Grande River in Colorado. The Rio Grande River is the 3rd longest river with headwaters in the United States and is the 20th longest river in the world. This “Grande River” has its headwaters above the Flying W Ranch along the continental divide and flows all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. The extensive riparian ecosystem along the river corridor provides the abundant habitat biodiversity needed for aquatic, wildlife, fish and woodland habitats. An abundance of trophy trout along with a multitude of wildlife species are found throughout the ranch. Mule deer and pronghorn antelope can often be found grazing or bedded on the ranch. Both bald eagles and golden eagles soar year-round on the ranch along with red-tailed hawks. Other raptors can be viewed seasonally. In the spring, after the snow and ice melt, waterfowl return to nest and hatch their young along the river, creek, slough, and pond waterways. The ranch experiences an annual return of the great blue heron to its rookery located on the lower ranch with over 50 returning blue herons nesting in the cottonwoods along the river. Ducks and geese return to the ranch in significant numbers along with a myriad of small bird species. Spring and fall migrations also provide for the occasional glimpse of both sandhill cranes and great white pelicans. Occasional moose, elk, mountain lion, bobcat, lynx and other species of both big and small game pass through the ranch as well. Abundant surface water rights provide for irrigation of more than 600± acres and provide more than 500± acre-feet of consumptive use water rights. The ranch has more than 15 CFS of surface water rights, of which more than 6 CFS are senior water rights. These priority water rights assure that irrigation water will be available during the entire growing season.

Telluride’s Mountain Village features world class skiing, a championship 18 hole golf course, luxury accommodations, the highly acclaimed Golden Door Spa, and innovative mountain cuisine. Climate: In the winter season an average of over 350 inches of annual snowfall blanket the slopes. Blue skies and sunny winter temperatures are typical with over 300 sunny days annually. The climate is surprisingly mild in southern Colorado, with average daytime temperatures in the 20’s and 30’s (degrees F) during the ski season. The mid-day temperatures during the summer season are typically in the 70’s. Acreage: The Nix Ranch is approximately 395 acres of alpine high country ranging in elevation from 9,000 to 9,800 feet. The ranch is a mix of aspen, spruce and fir trees with lush meadows teaming with wildflowers. The northern border is County Road M44. The improvements are situated in the middle of the ranch at the edge of an aspen grove and nearby spring fed pond. Rising in elevation to the southern border is one mile of boundary with the Uncompahgre National Forest. Water: Nix Ranch has approximately 16 adjudicated springs and 13 water storage rights and an approval for a plan of augmentation. Not all of the ponds have been completed and the expansion of some of the ponds is approved but not completed. Additionally, there is 1.5 cfs of irrigation water from Flying H ditch for irrigation of approximately 100 acres. A copy of the adjudicated water rights is on file and is available to interested parties. Improvements: The improvements are beautifully placed in the middle of the ranch near an aspen grove and a spring fed pond. The ranch house is a two bedroom homestead cabin. There is power to the cabin and the water is from a cistern fed by a nearby spring. The cabin has modern plumbing and an oversized septic suitable for building a larger home. There is a wonderful historic log barn and adjacent corral, small one room cabin and storage shed near the main cabin which has served as headquarters for a cattle operation and is now used as a summer retreat and hunting camp. Operational Considerations: Currently, the Nix Ranch is utilized as a small cattle operation and hunting property. The ranch will carry approximately 80 to 100 AU’s through the summer grazing season. The grazing is leased out to a neighboring rancher. The ranch could be optimized as a beautiful horse ranch. Currently there is a beautiful rustic barn and corrals on the property. Hunting has traditionally been reserved for family and friends, however the commercial hunting potential is an option. Recreation: Wildlife populations abound on and around the Nix Ranch including a large resident elk herd. The ranch offers excellent hunting or viewing for elk, mule deer, black bear, mountain lions, grouse, and turkey to name a few. The pine and aspen forests provide excellent shelter and habitat for the prolific wildlife. There is an opportunity to expand the personal or commercial hunting potential. With 13,000 and 14,000 foot peaks surrounding you, there are spectacular views wherever you go. The fall and summer seasons offer great hiking, camping, and horse back riding. Brokers Comment: The Nix Ranch has the charm of a gentleman’s ranch offering location, views, hunting, recreation, National Forest access, and usable improvements. The scenic alpine ranch offers privacy and convenience located just 45 minutes from all the amenities associated with the world class resort of Telluride.

Lovely alpine vistas, a marvelous trout stream, four-season recreation, and one of the nation’s last operating narrow gauge railroads all make the Los Pinos Ranch, a rare treasure west of Antonito in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. Anglers, hunters, history buffs and solitude lovers all will appreciate the unique draw of the Rio de Los Pinos Ranch, just waiting for the construction of a very special high-country retreat. The centerpiece of this 287.7± acre ranch is the Rio de Los Pinos itself, an enchanting clearwater river, about 20 feet wide, that flows from Trujillo Meadows Reservoir about five miles to the west. On the ranch, it traverses for almost 3/4 of a mile in a series of lovely riffles and oxbow bends through natural grasslands. The river is a productive aquatic insect factory, with strong populations of mayfly, caddisfly and stonefly nymphs, which in turn, feed its wild trout population. Once the native range of Rio Grande Cutthroat trout (some of which populate nearby tributaries) this section of the Los Pinos now supports brown and rainbow trout that run in the 10- 12-inch range, with some reaching 16 inches or so in the deeper pools at the oxbow bends. Best of all, these fish love to take a fly, and the river offers brush-free, dry fly fishing at its finest in the summer months. Beginning flyfishers will find this water perfect for learning the sport, while veteran anglers will enjoy a season’s worth of challenges as well. Located at approximately 9,800 feet, the Rio de Los Pinos Ranch is a crisp-air retreat throughout the summer months, particularly attractive to wildlife lovers and photographers. Pines, spruce and aspen populate the eastern half of the property, and the river with its meadows the western half. In the fall, the aspen blaze and create a photographer’s dream. Wildlife photographers should keep an eye out for elk, mule deer, black bear and mountain lions, which are drawn to the creek for water on a daily basis. Although this is a true mountain property, it is accessible twelve months of the year via Colorado State Highway 17, a year-round paved road over Cumbres and La Manga Passes. Snowmobiling on the property and nearby is accessible, as this section of the San Juans generally receives a heavy snowpack. Downhill skiers will find world-class skiing at Taos, New Mexico, or Wolf Creek in Colorado, each less than two hours distant. The Rio de Los Pinos Ranch also boasts part of the right of way of the world-famous Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad that connects Antonito and Chama, New Mexico. Constructed in 1880, this steam-powered narrow gauge continues to operate in the summer months, carrying tourists through some of the most spectacular terrain in the Rockies. On the ranch itself and nearby, the photo opportunities of this steam-powered train are almost endless. The Rio de Los Pinos Ranch is in the heart of a wealth of recreation on the Rio Grande National Forest, including lake fishing at Trujillo Meadows Reservoir, big river fishing only a few miles away on the Conejos River, and hiking and horseback riding on a vast network of trails in the South San Juan Wilderness. For the culturally minded, the tourist and arts communities of Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado, are only a short drive away via paved highway. M4 Ranch Group is excited about live water properties that contain productive streams like the Los Pinos. Add in many other year-round recreational opportunities, year-round access, and a one-of-a-kind narrow-gauge railroad, and we think that Rio de Los Pinos Ranch is about as a perfect a site for an off-grid mountain retreat as can be found. This is a fabulous, out-of-the-way section of Colorado that may be just what your soul needs. Visit here once, and we believe that you’ll be charmed for life by this incomparably beautiful slice of the San Juan Mountains.

Completely surrounded by National Forest land and bordered by wilderness on one side, the Oleo Ranch near Lake City, Colorado is a mountain resort without peers. Fully operational as an off-grid property with a main ranch house, bunkhouse, and seven roomy rentable cabins, Oleo Ranch has a fabulous reputation among guests, many of whom return year after year. Located squarely in the heart of some of the best hunting and fishing in Colorado, the Oleo Ranch is well-positioned to maintain its coveted reputation for customer satisfaction for generations to come. Situated at 10,500 feet between Slumgullion and Spring Creek Passes, Oleo Ranch occupies 165.4± acres of mountain meadows, aspen groves, spruce forest and riparian lands bordering Cebolla Creek. The creek itself is one of the ranch’s finest natural assets, as it offers 1.5 miles of excellent small stream fishing for wild brook and brown trout that grow up to 16 inches, with many in the 10- to 13-inch class. Cebolla Creek boasts excellent water quality and a huge aquatic insect base that keeps its trout fat and happy. Both beginning and experienced fly fishers will find much to love about Cebolla Creek. In addition, 5 small ponds have been developed along the creek that can support larger trout, some of which reach trophy proportions. Oleo Ranch is also a natural corridor for enough trophy big game to excite even the most jaded of hunters. With the abundant water on the ranch, the property is a magnet for elk, mule deer and moose. Rare indeed is the day when one or all of these species is not seen on the ranch. Oleo Ranch is located within Unit 66 and very near Unit 76, both of which are limited draw units renowned for trophy elk. A very limited season is available for moose in these units, but the moose population is thriving, and hunting opportunities are certain to increase in coming years. Accommodations on the ranch have been designed to maximize the wilderness setting and experience. Eight log cabins are scattered throughout the property, and range from 800 to 1,200 square feet, and can accommodate from 4 to 12 guests each. Electricity does not exist on the ranch, but all lighting, heating, and refrigeration are propane-powered. This makes Oleo Ranch a perfect place to literally and figuratively unplug, a feature it uses to the best advantage for those seeking a retreat from the stress of civilization. Recreational opportunities surrounding the ranch are legion. Wildlife photography and fishing on the ranch can occupy full days by themselves, but with National Forest in every direction, the possibilities multiply exponentially. Fabulous public fishing is available just a short drive to the south on the Rio Grande, and to the north, on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River. OHV riding is legendary on the Alpine Loop, about 30 minutes away, and secondary trails are available almost on the doorstep of the ranch. Hiking and horseback trails reach from the ranch directly to the neighboring La Garita Wilderness, which offers incredible solitude, mountaineering among many high Thirteeners, and one Fourteener, 14,014-foot San Luis Peak. In addition, the famed Colorado Trail and Continental Divide Trail wind just south of the ranch. Of course, fall photography when the aspen blaze is second to none, and the complete absence of light pollution makes the ranch one of the finest dark sky locations in the United States for astronomical viewing. In the winter, the ranch is located directly on a groomed snowmobile trail system that spreads over 100 miles on both sides of the Continental Divide. The charming small mountain towns of Lake City and Creede are just down Highway 149, 17 miles and 36 miles away, respectively. Both offer dining, artisans, medical centers, Victorian architecture, and rich mining history. The Creede Repertory Theatre is world-renowned, and Lake City is the hub of the Alpine Loop Scenic Byway that accesses some of the most spectacular country in the Lower 48. At M4 Ranch Group, we believe that the Oleo Ranch is a unique find. Off-grid and yet comfortable, private and yet accessible, the Oleo Ranch blends with its beautiful San Juan Mountains setting perfectly. It could further be developed into an amazing fishing and hunting resort, a family or corporate retreat, a wilderness base camp or simply be kept as it is. If you’ve forgotten the beauty of a place that simply works with its surroundings rather than against them, we’d love to introduce you to such a special place at the Oleo Ranch.
