Gutierrez Ranch is a mostly open, protein-rich, native, short-grass prairie ranch. The property enjoys a nice mix of open grasslands and pinon/cedar/canyon cover. Around 80% of the ranch is open, while around 20% of the property is comprised of around pinon/cedar cover and 4 miles of the picturesque Van Bremmer canyon which holds running water year-round. The canyon slopes are well covered with gambel oak, pinon and juniper trees, providing protective cover for stock and wildlife.
The property enjoys fabulous unencumbered views of the snow-capped Spanish Peaks and Sangre De Cristo Range.
Gutierrez Ranch is situated in central Las Animas County in southeastern Colorado. Trinidad, Colorado, with all commercial services, is about 30 minutes away. Denver is about a 3.5 hour drive to the north.
There is a modest, serviceable brick home on the property currently occupied by the ranch manager. There is also a serviceable bunkhouse on the ranch. The property enjoys all-new perimeter and pasture fencing. Stock water is abundant with 5 solar wells, a live spring, over 30 earthen tanks and ponds and a year-round creek in Van Bremer Canyon. Two-track roads traverse most sections of the ranch.
