***FOR HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTO GALLERY, ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND A VARIETY OF PROPERTY MAPS VISIT HALL AND HALL PROPERTY WEBSITE *** Regarded as one of the finest trophy big game hunting and fishing ranches in Colorado, Seven Lakes Ranch is a true sporting paradise. The ranch is located in the coveted White River Valley of the Flat Tops Mountains, prized for its outdoor recreation, bucolic landscape and unspoiled beauty. This massive 11,900± deeded acre ranch straddles the trout-filled White River, rising thousands of feet in elevation to public land boundaries on both sides of the valley. The sought-after combination of big river and excellent big game habitat is aptly complemented by a magnificent setting for a luxurious lakeside lodge. This multi-faceted property encompasses a diversity of terrain and vegetation, from the lush hay meadows along the river, up through shrubs and oaks, to the aspen groves, conifers and mountain parks of the higher elevations. The ranch is located in the heart of the White River herd, one of the largest elk and deer migrations in the Rocky Mountains. Sharing 15 miles of common boundary with surrounding White River National Forest, BLM and State lands, the diverse topography and vegetation on the ranch result in excellent wildlife habitat, that not only supports large numbers of resident elk and mule deer but draws them from these adjacent public lands. Limited hunting on the ranch has resulted in a veritable wildlife sanctuary, with plentiful populations of game, especially elk and mule deer. The White River is well known as an outstanding trout fishery, and Seven Lakes Ranch encompasses nearly two miles of a premier stretch of it. This beautiful 1.9± mile reach includes both sides and is completely private. A medium gradient freestone river, the White is famous for prolific hatches, highlighted by an incredible spring caddis hatch and excellent dry-fly fishing throughout the summer and fall months. Professional enhancements to the river have further increased the number and size of fish on the ranch. The result is high quality private water, with impressive populations of rainbows, browns, cutthroat trout, as well as the occasional whitefish. Additional water resources include a small creek, dozens of ponds, historic water rights, and of course seven beautiful mountain lakes. It is befitting that a recreational ranch of this caliber would be capped off with exceptional improvements. Nestled amidst aspen forests and the property’s namesake lakes, the custom stone and log lodge is grand yet comfortable. This ideal location combines ultimate privacy with stunning views of the surrounding wilderness, stretching all the way to the mountains of Utah. The 13,907± square foot lodge with eight guest suites features massive logs and soaring double-sided moss rock fireplace, rustic bar and commanding views out the great room’s wall of windows. When gatherings spill outdoors, an expansive lakeside stone patio is perfect for entertaining, and for breathtaking sunsets. A variety of cabins provide additional accommodations and are complemented by an authentic saloon/dance hall, and operations buildings. An extensive internal road network and trail system links the improvements and a wide variety of recreational activities for multi-generational enjoyment including long distance shooting range, sporting clays, horseback riding, biking and hiking, snowmobiling and ice skating. The White River Valley is blessed by being somewhat off the beaten path and has avoided large scale development seen in other Colorado river valleys. It has been discovered, however, by handful of discreet, stewardship-minded individuals who acquired large land holdings after being captivated by the beauty and recreation of the area. Seven Lakes Ranch is one such property. Strategically assembled by legendary golfer, entrepreneur and outdoorsman Greg Norman, the ranch has served as a treasured family retreat for over two decades. Despite the secluded nature of the White River Valley, the ranch headquarters is located just 20 minutes up the valley from Meeker, a nice town of 2,400± offering a full complement of services. Meeker boasts a 6,500-foot jet-capable airstrip, and commercial service is available at the Steamboat-Hayden airport less than an hour and a half from the ranch.

Eagle Canyon Ranch is a slice of Rocky Mountain paradise hidden in plain sight. Although only 1.5 hours from the Front Range metropolis of Colorado Springs and 3 hours from Denver, Eagle Canyon Ranch is shielded from the urban bustle by the Wet Mountain Range to the east and the legendary Sangre de Cristo Range to the west. As a result, Eagle Canyon remains an unspoiled place of respite and refuge where the rugged West still reigns. Eagle Canyon Ranch is a well-blocked parcel encompassing 2,369± acres at an elevation of about 8,000 feet, about 10 miles northeast of the “twin cities” of Westcliffe and Silver Cliff. One of the largest remaining parcels in Custer County, Eagle Canyon Ranch brims with scenic beauty created by an ever-changing combination of granite outcroppings, small meadows, and forests of pinion pine, juniper and spruce, and fir. Mountain views abound, of both the Sangre de Cristos, reaching far above treeline at over 14,000 feet, and the nearer forested peaks of the Wet Mountains. Presently undeveloped, the ranch is perfectly situated for a variety of recreational activities. Healthy mule deer and elk herds roam through the ranch itself and on the bordering BLM land, including the Upper Grape Creek Wilderness Area. As a draw only unit for both deer and elk, Unit 69 holds many trophies of both species. Mountain lions and black bear are also found in the area. Grape Creek flows just west of the ranch, and miles of public fishing for 10- to 14-inch brown trout and rainbow are available on this “sleeper stream” by only a short 4WD trip from the ranch. Lake anglers will appreciate the waters of Deweese Reservoir, only a few miles upstream, with its combination of trout, smallmouth bass, and huge tiger muskies. Eagle Canyon Ranch can also serve as a headquarters for mountain biking and horseback riding, both on and off the ranch property, OHVing, and even rock climbing on scores of granite outcrops on the property. Mountaineers will find plenty of summits in the Sangre de Cristos, including the famed Fourteeners of Crestone Peak, Crestone Needle, and Humboldt Peak, just a few miles away. Photographers will discover endless photo opportunities every season of the year, and the area’s dark skies are internationally recognized as some of the best in the world for astronomical observations. Visionary owners will delight in several amazing building sites on the ranch, each with remarkable views and precious privacy. Although no power is on the ranch, it is nearby. The property could also be a showcase for off-grid living. The potential for an environmentally friendly lodge or retreat at Eagle Canyon is outstanding. Currently, within a grazing lease, Eagle Canyon Ranch also supports cattle on a seasonal basis and provides some income. The small twin communities of Westcliffe (Custer County seat) and Silver Cliff are only about ten miles away and are accessible by county road year-round. These towns offer groceries, gas, schools, airstrip, and a medical center. The larger community of Canon City is only slightly farther to the north, and Pueblo is less than an hour to the east. At Eagle Canyon, you’ll be both “away from it all” and “close to it all.” Within the rapidly growing Front Range corridor, large ranches like Eagle Canyon are increasingly uncommon. We at M4 Ranch Group believe that those with a vision for working with what the land already offers will find much to appreciate here. Whether it is a dream home, a lodge, or simply “keeping it as it is,” we’d love to introduce you to this slice of Rocky Mountain paradise hidden in plain sight.

Each owner has added a new chapter, contributing to its unique character and story that continues to unfold. Hidden among the pecan and walnut groves are park-like clearings that the current owners have claimed as picnic areas, keeping them manicured and particularly beautiful. While the surface water is plentiful, there are also two working windmills that could be used to provide additional water for the bountiful wildlife.

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.

The barn is divided in 3 sections, one being open for a large equipment, one for hay storage and the last for a workshop. A smaller barn is located in the back which is used for storing materials and equipment. The original homesite still contains the family home, but was left uninhabitable by Hurricane Harvey. While the gorgeous homesite itself still remains, the house is now only a shell. Water wells include a 1,250 gpm irrigation well, about 1 ½ miles of subterranean piping, there also appears to be one, and maybe two 5” water wells with electric pumps.

The fabulous Pick Bar Ranch, just east of Durango, Colorado, contains a healthy portion of everything a classic Western Ranch ought to have: well-watered meadowlands, a forest of tall pines, endless mountain views, abundant wildlife and a with a record of producing monster trout. Add in the solid infrastructure of a proven cattle operation, and the Pick Bar Ranch carries its weight as one of the finest recreation and working ranch properties in southern Colorado. The Pick Bar Ranch occupies 1008.9± acres in the scenic Pine River valley, a few miles north of Bayfield, on the main road to Vallecito Reservoir. Located at approximately 7000 feet, the ranch has a Ponderosa forest section and a meadow section. The eastern section is dominated by extensive forests of mature ponderosa pine, with abundant draws to shelter mule deer, elk, and black bear and private access to national forest. The western meadow section contains the ranch headquarters, irrigated meadowlands and the riparian corridor of the Pine River and Bear Creek, vegetated with a lovely mix of pines and native cottonwoods. Water makes or breaks ranches in southern Colorado, and the Pick Bar Ranch is blessed with over a mile of the coveted Pine River, and a mile of its tributary, Bear Creek. Senior water rights of a healthy 3.278 c.f.s. ensures that nearly 200 acres of hay is well-watered, including a 1/4-mile radius pivot. As a result, the ranch has been a solid cattle producer since 1883 and currently supports up to 70 AUs year-round, with winter pasture and summer grazing all available on-property. The Pine River is a closely guarded fishery among those who are fortunate enough to control access to it. Rich in insect life, and partially controlled by the outflow from Vallecito Reservoir, the Pine can produce some of the largest brown and rainbow trout in Colorado. Not far upstream from the Pick Bar Ranch, a 40-inch rainbow was recently caught, and trophy browns and rainbows in the multi-pound category live throughout the river, including on the mile of river on the Pick Bar Ranch. Careful riparian habitat management and engineered habitat improvements ensure that the Pine on the Pick Bar will continue to grow and retain trout of bragging proportions. The mountain portion of the ranch adjoins public land in the 2.5-million-acre San Juan National Forest, which makes for hunting opportunities for both mule deer and elk. Both species can often be seen on the ranch, especially when early snow pushes them to lower elevations. Other wildlife includes coyotes, foxes, bobcats, mountain lion, black bear and a great variety of birds attracted to the riparian area. There are currently two deer tags with the property, one is a property owners tag and one is an open unit tag. Improvements on the ranch equip it to be an ideal equestrian site, including a classic red barn, 75×175 indoor riding arena and a full-size outdoor arena. Wonderful riding opportunities are abundant in both the meadow and mountain sections of the ranch, and the climate is mild enough to keep horses year-round. Other recreational amenities on the ranch include dog kennel, private shooting range, and a small bass pond. An impressive gated entry leads to the Pick Bar Ranch headquarters, with its historic three-story home and wraparound porch. A second, newer home nearby allows ample room for ranch help or can serve as a guest house. And the underground sprinkler system keeps the lovely grounds well-watered. Pick Bar Ranch is uniquely situated between Colorado’s largest wilderness area, the Weminuche, just a few miles to the north, and the bustling small city of Durango, only 30 minutes to the west. Thus, multi-day horseback or hiking excursions to the wilderness are close at hand, but so are the amenities of the city. Durango offers a commercial airport, upscale restaurants, quality entertainment, Fort Lewis College, and the historic Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Downhill skiing is available at Purgatory Ski Resort, just north of Durango, Wolf Creek Ski area less than 90 minutes east, and world-famous Mesa Verde National Park is about 90 minutes to the west. Here at M4 Ranch Group, we think that the combination of ideal ranch features at Pick Bar Ranch make it an extremely attractive find. As a property with potential for cattle, horses, fishing and hunting, and close access to a rich variety of recreational opportunities it stands alone. The Pick Bar Ranch deserves consideration of anyone looking for the soul of the old West, yet just a few miles away from the best of the new West. The western property from CR 501 to the Pine River (Approximately 254.5± acres which includes the pastures, and all ranching and residential improvements) may be sold separately for $13,000,000.
