Kimball Mountain Ranch is a 10,282± deeded acre mountain property located in the mesa country of western Colorado. This distinct holding is a contiguous block of unimproved land running nearly seven and a half miles in length and controlling nearly the entirety of Kimball Mountain. The ranch features a diverse blend of topography including lower valley benches with massive canyon walls and secluded timber valleys that rise to a long mesa bisected by a series of open parks and rolling ridges. While views of the property itself are striking, the countless vistas from the top are dramatic – one can gaze down upon valley floors and across to surrounding canyons and mountaintops. Kimball Mountain sits between two of western Colorado’s most notable hunting ranches and is home to trophy mule deer and elk, as well as healthy populations of Merriam’s turkey, grouse, and black bear. The diverse habitat also insures healthy populations of raptors, songbirds, and a host of other wildlife. As a result of the unfortunate 2020 Pine Gulch Fire, portions of the acreage including the steep north slope were burned while others remained relatively untouched. Ownership took immediate action to protect the property through mitigation efforts including aerial seeding. This proactive approach resulted in diversified forage composition, good regrowth of forbs and grasses, curbed woody shrub encroachment, increased carbon sequestration, and improved hydrology. In short, Kimball Mountain and its wildlife have responded favorably to the burn and subsequent remediation. The pricing model incorporates the impacts of the fire and provides the opportunity to acquire a significant land holding at an attractive price point. Kimball Mountain Ranch is ideal for those seeking an investment opportunity with strong recreational benefits. Kimball Mountain Ranch is located in western Garfield County between the town of Rifle and the city of Grand Junction. Year-round access is provided by a paved and maintained county road just 13 miles north of Interstate Highway 70 and the historic ranching community of De Beque. Driving time to Grand Junction and the Grand Junction Regional Airport and FBO is an hour. The town of Rifle and the Rifle FBO is a 45-minute drive from the ranch. Vail, Beaver Creek, and Aspen are all within two hours of the ranch, with Denver about three and a half hours to the east.

Yarmony Mountain Ranch possesses the attributes everyone looks for in a Colorado mountain property. Located between the ski resorts of the Vail Valley and Steamboat Springs, this unimproved 3,561± acre offering is highlighted by a diverse landscape of aspen groves, mountain parks, timbered slopes, canyons, and sage pasture. The ranch is well-watered with multiple water sources, including nearly six-plus miles of creeks. This is a place with big mountain views and limitless recreational activities on the deeded acreage as well as adjacent public lands. Yarmony Mountain Ranch borders Routt National Forest, BLM lands, and the Radium State Wildlife Area. It is also just north of the Radium Recreation Area on the Colorado River. The primary point of access for the ranch sits north of the unincorporated community of Bond, which is located 15 miles north of the I-70 corridor. Vail, Beaver Creek, and the Eagle County Regional Airport are all within 40 miles of Bond to the south. The ski resort community of Steamboat Springs is 56 miles to the north of Bond. In addition to its beautiful mountain setting, Yarmony Ranch provides excellent wildlife habitat and is home to strong populations of both resident and migratory elk and mule deer. Additional wildlife found here includes moose, grouse, songbirds, and a host of other animals. Wildflowers abound at the higher elevations of the ranch during the summer, and one will appreciate the ranch’s rich biodiversity and varied ecological zones. The lower parcels of this holding sit just above the Colorado River. Elevation rises as the ranch runs north from these parcels to the eventual border with national forest lands. The topography is varied throughout, with rolling ridges and lush valleys interspersed with steep mountain slopes and open sage parks. Access to the ranch is currently seasonal. Gated internal roads provide access to and throughout each parcel. The property is located within Colorado Game Management Unit (GMU) 15 which is designated as an over-the-counter elk hunting unit. With bull elk licenses available on an over-the-counter basis for the archery and second and third rifle seasons. Licenses for the muzzleloader and first and fourth rifle seasons are available by draw only. Private landowners in GMU 15 may also apply for private land-only elk licenses for the muzzleloader, first, and fourth rifle seasons. These private land-only licenses are generally easily drawn and provide ownership with additional license and hunting season options. Mule deer licenses in the State of Colorado are only available by draw. However, mule deer licenses in this GMU are easily drawn and landowners can apply for private land-only licenses that are also readily drawn on an annual basis. The ranch is not currently enrolled in Colorado’s landowner preference program, but new ownership could enroll the property in the program and apply for deer hunting vouchers in the future. Offered in cooperation with William George, Colorado Ranch Company.

The Porter Ranch—Colorado Legacy Ranch for sale near Aspen & Glenwood Springs Large acreage Western Colorado ranch with abundant water rights for sale Large ranches in the Aspen/Vail/Grand Junction triangle do not often come up for sale, but the Porter Ranch, located just a few miles south of the town of New Castle, is now on the market. The ranch has excellent assets, including 3,526 deeded acres, superior water rights, beautiful year-round climate, irrigated hay meadows, world-class hunting, easy access to I-70 and airports, and a blank slate for future development. Quick Details:  3,526 Deeded Acres  885 Irrigated Acres 1,175 Acre-Feet of Water Trophy Bull Elk Hunting, Mule Deer, Turkey, Bear, & More Working Corrals 120x50' Hay Shed 80x40' Machine Shop Manager's Home: 2015 Modular Pressurized Irrigation Systems Historic Cattle Ranch  A historic legacy Colorado cattle ranch and hunting ranch is offered for sale The Porter Ranch is one of the most historic ranches on the Western Slope, as the forebears of the Porter family gathered up a herd of cattle near Denver in 1880 and drove the herd all the way across the mountains to the Grand Valley on a 3-month cattle drive. It was one of the earliest settled ranches on the Western Slope. The Porter Family has held the ranch for the past 5 generations, raising hay, running cattle, and outfitting hunters on the ranch. Centrally located on the I-70 corridor between Grand Junction, Aspen, Vail, and Glenwood Springs The Porter Ranch is easily accessed from Exit 105 on I-70, which parallels the Colorado River as it flows through New Castle and then down to Rifle and Grand Junction. From I-70, it is a short 11-minute drive up Alkali Creek, or County Road 312, to the ranch gate. Glenwood Springs, with its famous Hot Springs Pool, Fairy Caves, and tourist attractions, is just 15 minutes further up I-70, and Aspen is a total of 1:15 from the ranch. Vail is 1:17 from the ranch. Grand Junction, with its regional airport, Colorado Mesa University, Country Jam, world-class hospitals, and excellent concert venues, is about 1:25 down I-70 from the ranch gate. There are four different airports in fairly close proximity, including Aspen, Vail (which is actually Gypsum, under an hour from the ranch); Grand Junction; and Rifle airport, which doesn’t have connecting flights, but can land large jets. Rifle airport is less than half an hour from the Porter Ranch. The Porter Ranch is located at a pleasing elevation for year-round enjoyment Many Western ranches are located at high elevation, where heavy snowfall can make life difficult. Winters are long and frozen, involving feeding hay to hungry animals, plowing snow, and waiting for spring. Fall comes too quickly and it’s winter again. With the Porter Ranch headquarters at 6,000 feet in elevation, the ranch has an enjoyable year-round climate. Spring comes earlier, fall arrives later, and the ranch enjoys a long growing season. The upper reaches of the ranch top out at 7,800 feet, so there are zones that have a longer winter, but generally speaking the weather is pleasant on the Porter Ranch. Water resources on the Porter Ranch for sale—excellent water rights for ranching or future development As the saying goes in the West, “whiskey’s for drinking; water’s for fighting,” because water is such a precious resource. The Porter Ranch has several different diversion points from local creeks to water the ranch, as well as a large reservoir situated on the top of a ridge overlooking the basin below. Fed by mountain snowmelt, the reservoir holds 1,175 acre feet of water that is entirely dedicated to the ranch. Further, the Porter family installed a network of underground water pipelines to irrigate close to 800 acres of the ranch with gravity-fed pressurized sprinklers, which makes for an easy job of irrigating and results in quality hay production. There are 4 large center pivots and an array of big gun sprinklers to reach the best areas on the ranch for hay production. Colorado GMU 42 Private Ranch Big Game Hunting for Trophy Elk, Mule Deer, Bear Serous big game hunters will love the hunting opportunities on the Porter Ranch, which is famous for outstanding hunting for elk, trophy mule deer, and bear, as well as turkey and grouse. The ranch is in the heart of Colorado GMU 42, which has been known as one of the top producers of trophy mule deer bucks since the Boone & Crockett club was organized in the late 1880’s by Teddy Roosevelt and his cohorts. In fact, TR stayed in the famous Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs and his guides took him up Alkali Creek to hunt on the Porter Ranch and adjacent properties for mule deer and bear in 1905. The ranch is classic mule deer and elk habitat, with sagebrush and pinyon-juniper forests in the lower elevations and oak brush mixed with aspens at the higher elevations. The ranch provides critical wildlife habitat, as numerous does and fawns can be spotted while touring the ranch, and herds of elk live on the ranch year-round. Bulls scoring up to 360” have been taken on the property, and many bucks scoring 180”-200” have been harvested on the Porter Ranch, including several Boone & Crockett record-book entries. Outstanding future development property—the Porter Ranch is one of the last big ranches in the Roaring Fork Valley Growth and development has accelerated in the Aspen corridor and property values are high. The average home price in Carbondale, just 25 miles to the southeast, is over $1,600,000, and Aspen home prices averaged $14 million in 2022. This ranch is basically a blank canvas for development, with high demand in the I-70 corridor for new homesites, especially in a private ranch setting. The ranch has more than adequate water to serve new development, and Garfield County is receptive to new projects. There are literally hundreds of gorgeous homesites on the Porter Ranch, from which there are only a handful of other homes within eyesight. Limited improvements on the Porter Ranch, leaving a blank slate for the new owner Many Western ranches have been highly improved over the years with improvements that are not necessarily to the taste or function of new ownership. The Porter Ranch has few improvements and those structures on the ranch are utilitarian. Aside from the small historic ranch home, there is a 4-bedroom, 2-bath modular home (built in 2015) that would serve well as a ranch manager’s home; a 40 x 80 machine shop; a 50 x 120 hay barn; and a set of cattle pens. There is no grand lodge or set of cabins or trophy custom home. It is basically a blank slate for a new owner to come in and design the next role for the property. An Outstanding Buy-and-Hold Strategy for the Wise Investor Looking for a Western Ranch With its unique combination of assets, the Porter Ranch offers a wise investor a very good buy-and-hold strategy for land banking. Every investor knows that the stock market may not be the best place for their money, and land has appreciated steadily in value over the decades. The development potential of the Porter Ranch cannot be overlooked—it will only appreciate in value. Its water rights alone are worth millions. However, the ranch can serve as a legacy family property for decades to come, hosting family and visitors for vacations, big game hunting, and learning about agriculture, while the development potential is always there.
