Unquestionably one of the most well-known legacy ranches in northern Colorado, Grizzly Ranch combines exceptional ranching and recreational attributes on 9,286± deeded acres plus 13,400± BLM leased acres. The ranch is located approximately 10 minutes from the quaint mountain town of Walden and 45± minutes from the popular resort town of Steamboat Springs. Named after Grizzly Creek which meanders for five-plus miles through the ranch, the Grizzly Ranch is a well-watered, contiguous ranch that offers great working ranch production values and outstanding recreation. The ranch also contains seven miles of Little Grizzly Creek, and the confluence of Little Grizzly and Grizzly Creeks is the beginning of the famous North Platte River, which flows for another four-plus miles on the ranch. With over 16 miles of creeks and the river, the ranch offers tremendous brown and rainbow trout fishing and the opportunity to make additional stream improvements. The ranch runs a well-balanced hay and grazing operation. Productive hay meadows are irrigated with senior water rights and an extensive ditch system that provides irrigation water for over 4,700 acres. The current owner rates the ranch at 1,000 pairs annually plus 400-500 yearlings and they are producing more than 4,500 tons of quality mountain hay annually.

362 acres adjoining huge amounts of public land Elk, mule deer, antelope, moose & more End of the road privacy, heavy timber & multiple springs All-weather county road access Less than 1/2 hour from Walden, CO Located less than two miles from the Wyoming border, Independence Mountain Ranch lies dead center in the bullseye of legendary outdoor recreation. This undeveloped 362-acre parcel sits at roughly 8500 feet on the flanks of sprawling Independence Mountain at the northern gateway of North Park, just 30 minutes from Walden, Colorado. Almost completely surrounded by public lands, this ranch feels much larger than it is, and provides the height of privacy to those seeking a Rocky Mountain getaway in the heart of classic mountain scenery. Independence Mountain Ranch spreads over a variety of terrain and vegetation on the east side of Independence Mountain. Pine forests, grasslands, aspen groves and some burn scars create varied habitat within several small drainages that is ideal for wildlife. Numerous seeps and springs provide water sources, and hunting is excellent for mule deer, elk, and pronghorn. Moose, black bear, mountain lions and probably wolves also roam the area. Elk tags are available over the counter and the ranch qualifies for landholder deer tags. Trophy mule deer hunting can be found just over the Wyoming border, and some of magnificent bucks visit Independence Mountain Ranch as well. In addition to big game hunting on the ranch and adjacent BLM land, Independence Mountain Ranch is located in the heart of some of the finest trophy trout fishing in the West. Only five miles to the southeast lies scenic Northgate Canyon, where the North Platte River offers 18 miles of public Gold Medal and Blue Ribbon trout fishing for brown and rainbow trout up to 20 inches. The Wyoming section of the North Platte is less than an hour away near Saratoga, and is perfect for long float trips. In addition, stillwater anglers will find a lifetime of trophy trout fishing just 20 miles to the south in Lake John and the Gold Medal North Delaney Butte Lake. Some spectacular and lonely high country trails traverse the Park Range, a few miles to the west, where mountain lakes are alive with trout that seldom see a fly. Horseback riding, backpacking, off-roading, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are all barely a stone’s throw from the boundaries of Independence Mountain Ranch. Wildlife photography and birding complete the list of the dazzling array of outdoor recreation opportunities surrounding this strategically-positioned property. This entirely undeveloped property can be retained as-is, but with excellent access via paved highway and an all-weather County Road, the addition of an off-grid basecamp cabin or lodge feels like a natural fit. With a large tract of BLM land on one side and a large ranch on the other, whatever development that is done here will capitalize on the best kind of privacy. Walden, under 30 minutes to the south, provides all of the basic amenities, including a medical clinic, and Saratoga, Wyoming, an hour away, is a historic resort town that offers a remarkable airfield and public hot springs. Steamboat Springs and some of the finest downhill skiing and dining in North America is just over an hour distant, and Laramie, Wyoming is only about an hour away. If your investment aim is a reasonably priced ranch almost entirely surrounded by public lands, yet with year-round access, and with varied outdoor recreation on every hand, Independence Mountain Ranch may be your target. Parcels as beautifully situated as this one don’t show up every day, and this property may prove to be not just a target, but the exact bullseye of what you’re seeking.
