The pristine Storm King Mountain Ranches of Buckhorn Mountain are stunning wildlife and livestock ranch parcels located centrally between Montrose and Ridgway, Colorado. They sit upon majestic benches of the Cimarron Mountain Range and directly on the foot of stunningly beautiful Storm King Peak (11,428’). Meandering through the meadows and forests, the private ranch road joins each parcel to Montrose County Buckhorn Road. The ranches have panoramic and varying views from the San Juan Mountains to the Uncompahgre River Valley, Uncompahgre Plateau and Grand Mesa.
These exceptional ranch properties are a superb wildlife paradise for mule deer, elk, bear, lion, turkey, eagles, as well as numerous small animal and bird species. Abundant water & lush summer grasses have provided for over a century of historic use as a livestock ranch. Home to wildlife each season of the year from spring calving to the fall breeding, you'll see large herds throughout the ranch, as well as a winter migration off the Cimarron Mountains. Located in Unit 65, elk and mule deer hunting on the ranch is nothing short of phenomenal; big bulls up to 350 class and 200 class bucks have been taken off the ranch. This property is a wildlife sanctuary.
While each ranch offers privacy and seclusion, some of Colorado’s favorite summer/winter recreation venues and towns, including Ridgway, Ouray, and the ski slopes of Telluride are close by. The terrain of each parcel is as varied as the acreages, elevations run from 8,000' to 9,000' with vegetation mixes of sub-irrigated meadows, sage brush, Gambel Oaks, tall Cottonwood, Pinion pine and Cedar trees. Each parcel has springs, ponds, or portions of the 1 1/2 miles of Beaton Creek that transects the ranch. Wells can be drilled on each parcel and there is a utility easement along the ranch road for future power development.
The Storm King Ranches are just 25 miles from Montrose regional airport with flights to Boston, Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix, New York, San Francisco, and Charlotte. Montrose offers excellent amenities, hotels, hospital, and all the shopping you desire.
