Ranch against the mountains

Lying just outside the small mountain town of Fairplay Colorado, The Ranch on Fourmile Creek is an expansive swath of high park grassland providing spacious grazing in conjunction with excellent sporting opportunities for fishing, hunting, equestrian pursuits & outdoor enthusiasts.  With roughly a mile and a half of Fourmile Creek traversing the headquarters parcel, ripples and pools meander through the creek lowland for an excellent fly fishing experience within an idyllic landscape.  Sizable acreage provides the ownership access to the landowner preference program for big game hunting tags both on private and public lands.

The ranch enjoys spectacular views of snowcapped peaks in every direction near and far including the Mosquito Range, Buffalo Peaks Wilderness, Sangre De Christo Mountains and Pikes Peak.  Close proximity within 30 minutes of the resort mountain town of Breckenridge and world class skiing to the north and similarly to Buena Vista and the Arkansas River Headwaters Recreation Area to the south.
