Originating from the high elevations of the Flat Tops Wilderness and reaching to the high desert, the White River Valley is one of the most pristine recreational and agricultural locales in the west. Situated in the northwestern corner of Colorado, the panoramic landscape offers sweeping views, undisturbed topography, and outstanding wildlife habitat. The freestone White River is the lifeblood of this scenic valley, and with very limited public access it is an exclusive sanctuary for landowners with river access. The White is a little-known gem for Colorado trout enthusiasts and supports healthy populations of large rainbows and browns, along with epic hatches and renowned dry-fly fishing. Mountain creeks, side tributaries, and alpine lakes also provide abundant opportunities for elusive brookies and cutthroats. In addition to the unparalleled fly-fishing resources, the area also offers an abundance of world-class big game hunting opportunities and is home to North America’s largest resident elk herd.
Mirr Ranch Group currently has a range of offerings on the White River corridor. Beginning just 5 miles east of the town of Meeker, the K-T Ranch is a prized 725-acre holding with private access to over 7 miles of river and spring creeks. K-T also features approximately 370 acres of hay fields and historic water rights, as well as a classic two-story Victorian ranch house that once served as the headquarters of the ranch and has more recently been a central lodge for this Orvis-endorsed destination.
Continuing east up towards the wilderness, one arrives at the hub of the legendary Elk Creek Ranch, a self-contained sporting club like no other. With over 25 miles of private stream access, 2,800 deeded acres, control of 14,000 more, and luxurious amenities – Elk Creek is the ultimate recreational hideaway. Mirr Ranch Group currently has three unique offerings within this shared-ownership community. The North 40 is an offsite 40-acre parcel located about 8 miles downstream of the main ranch and has a direct ½ mile of river frontage as well as two potential home sites. This is the largest and most exclusive piece of property available to a single owner with membership to Elk Creek Ranch, and offers the ultimate privacy along the river. Within the central hub of the ranch and close to the main village is Homestead #24, a premier riverfront home site with awesome potential. Further up the side drainage of Elk Creek is Homestead #51 that overlooks the stream below and offers a prime building site with wonderful views and seclusion.
Together these offerings make up some of the finest fishing property available along the White River and represent top tier recreational opportunities throughout the Rocky Mountains. It should be noted that purchasing the K-T Ranch with one of the Elk Creek properties would comprise unprecedented privacy to almost 40 miles of some of the best trout water in Colorado.
