In an era of micro ranches, condominiums and virtual reality, Juniper Mountain Ranch in northwest Colorado is a refreshing throwback to the authentic West. The vistas are unspoiled and mule deer vastly outnumber tourists. Not far from here, Butch Cassidy and his gang once found refuge from the law, and today Juniper Mountain Ranch is a refuge from the pressure cooker of the twenty-first century. Juniper Mountain Ranch occupies the heart of untamed northwest Colorado, only a few miles from the ranching hamlet of Maybell. At 6,972.40± deeded acres, it’s an impressive spread that covers rolling hills of pinon/juniper woodlands and sagebrush bottomlands at elevations of 6,100 to 6,800 feet, surrounding the local landmark of 7,847-foot Juniper Mountain. With an attendant State lease and a 5,800-acre BLM grazing permit, over 20 square miles of territory fall under its domain. For years it has been productive grazing ground for 800 animal units, comprised of both cattle and sheep. Located in Game Management Unit 211, Juniper Mountain Ranch has proven itself to be a hotspot for both deer and elk hunters for decades. Historically the ranch has generated 8 mule deer and 8 antelope tags annually. Hunters on the ranch will find that animals of both these species, plus elk, congregate to escape hunting pressure on nearby public lands, finding refuge in the extensive woodlands and draws of Juniper Mountain Ranch. The hunting possibilities of this property have barely been touched, and the addition of a hunting lodge/outfitting business would be a natural fit. Juniper Mountain Ranch is easily accessible from US Highway 40 and thus not far from some of the West’s most spectacular recreational opportunities. The resort town of Steamboat Springs is less than 90 minutes to the east, offering world-class downhill skiing. Dinosaur National Monument, with its incredible fossil beds and spectacular sandstone canyons, lies only 45 minutes to the west. The Yampa River flows just north of the ranch, featuring renowned whitewater rafting and some of the best smallmouth bass fishing in the state. For those captivated by the West’s rich heritage of ranching and hunting, Juniper Mountain Ranch is as made to order as a custom saddle. We at M4 Ranch Group are impressed by places that still speak of the Authentic West, and if that runs in your soul, too, we’d love to share more of the incomparable possibilities of Juniper Mountain Ranch.

The ranch offers excellent grazing resources and, together with an associated “sole permittee” BLM grazing permit and State of Idaho grazing lease, is managed for spring and summer livestock use. The ranch is part of a large, undeveloped landscape that features exceptional public lands and over 95,000 acres of conserved private lands. Just north of the ranch is BLM’s Friedman Creek Wilderness Study Area with access to thousands of acres of lightly used, wilderness-quality backcountry. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve (jointly managed by the National Park Service and BLM) lies a short distance southeast of the property and encompasses ancient lava flows and over 400 square miles of protected sagebrush steppe grasslands. A series of conservation easements cover the ranch and allow for a broad set of agricultural, recreational, and residential uses. West Fork Fish Creek Ranch is currently the largest property available for purchase in the Sun Valley area.
