The combination of quiet seclusion, significant acreage, and close proximity to civilization is arguably the most attractive and elusive draw in the ranch world these days. American Creek has it. Elk, mule deer, turkeys, bear, grouse, and mountain lion thrive in the aspens, pines, and meadows of American Creek – all less than 10 minutes away from the skiing, golf, and restaurants of Angel Fire. Elk hunting is as good as it gets here, with very high numbers, quality genetics, and transferable landowner tags. There is a beautiful, newly remodeled (2017) 3,200 square foot Adobe home with 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, fiber internet, 3 fireplaces, and a newly constructed 3-car garage. American Creek is adjacent to and may be combined with Saladon Creek Ranch.

Improvements

Locale

The western edge of the property fronts Highway 64 about 2.5 miles north of the town of Angel Fire and the Angel Fire Ski Resort, offering alpine skiing, snowboarding, nordic skiing, kids tubing, sledding, ziplining, golf, and tennis.

This part of New Mexico is known for its friendly, laid-back western authenticity. The area was called “angel fire” by the Ute Indians, who marveled at the valley sunsets as if fire was bestowed in the sky from the angels in heaven.

Climate

Situated at 8,500 feet, American Creek Ranch offers respite from the summer heat, as temperatures rarely exceed 80 degrees.

Hunting

Northern New Mexico is well known for its outstanding elk hunting, both in terms of quantity and trophy quality. American Creek is no exception. The water, topography, and ideal mix of meadows and timber provide a sanctuary for elk and other wildlife, including mule deer, turkeys, bear, grouse, and mountain lion. Transferable landowner tags are available for bull and cow elk.

Fishing

There is excellent fishing for rainbow trout, pike, koho, and kokanee salmon minutes away at the 2200 acre Eagle Nest Lake. The Cimmaron River tailwater, just below Eagle Nest dam, offers some of the finest fly fishing in the state of New Mexico with browns and rainbows up to 18”.

Recreation

Other recreation opportunities include hiking, snowshoeing, and OHVing.

Ranch Operations

American Creek is first and foremost a mountain recreation ranch. That so, the ranch is equipped with infrastructure and water for summer cattle grazing on the lower meadows, with a calving barn, pens, shipping facilities, and a heated shop. There is live creek water, dirt tanks, ponds, seeps, and springs throughout the property.

The owner has constructed an impressive network of two-track roads providing access to nearly everywhere on the property and has also developed several water resources for wildlife and/or stock.

Redstone Reserve at Horsetooth

Fort Collins, Colorado (Larimer County)

  • Redstone Reserve is located in the Redstone/Masonville area west of Fort Collins and Loveland CO in Larimer County, near the junction of County Road 25E and 38E. It is in the foothills/hogback country just southwest of Horsetooth Reservoir. County Road 25E is also known as Redstone Canyon Road; it bisects the property, separating the riparian area to the east from the more mountainous shrubland acreage to the west;
  • Although only fifteen minutes to both Fort Collins and Loveland, the area has been largely preserved by Larimer County and the City of Fort Collins, with Redstone Reserve being adjacent to Horsetooth Mountain Park and Open Space and Culver Open Space;
  • The large redstone-crowned mesa that serves as the backdrop to the property and its main residential area rises 850 feet over the property to the east, sheltering the property from the metro area;
  • Redstone Creek traverses the property from north to south; it is a seasonal stream that supports a healthy cottonwood-lined riparian area;
  • While the main operations of the ranch are located along the creek at a comfortable, four-season elevation of 5,400 feet, The Reserve is home to many elevation changes and orientations, and thus possesses a diversity of scenic resources and ecological communities, from foothills grassland, to mountain mahogany shrublands, to ponderosa pine woodlands, and desert cacti. Larimer County and Fort Collins’ Open Space programs found the property’s attributes to be compelling enough to work with the current owner to preserve those values – details on its conservation easement (CE) are below, or contact the listing agent;
  • Horsetooth Reservoir is a popular recreational area for boating, fishing, and paddleboarding, and has beaches for swimming and picnicking, too; it is a five-minute drive from the property;
  • Fort Collins is home to Colorado State University and a vibrant downtown filled with restaurants, shopping, music, and culture;
  • The Northern Colorado Airport for private aircraft is 20 minutes away in Loveland, and Rocky Mountain National Park is forty minutes away in Estes Park.
