  • Historically, the property was used for cattle grazing and dry land wheat production.  However, beginning in the early 1970s, the preserve was purchased by a non-profit organization which has maintained and administered the property for educational programs, observation and research.  The current owners have focused on protecting and managing this unique strip of mixed grass along with the canyon area and head-waters of Running Creek.
  • A well producing approximately 25-gallons per minute and a windmill once used to generate electricity are the only improvements currently on the property.

The 640-acre Running Creek Preserve offers mountain views, productive mixed-grass prairie and a private canyon area containing the headwaters of Running Creek. With views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range, ample pasture area for your livestock and convenient access to both Denver and Colorado Springs, this would be a perfect place to build a second home or equestrian estate. This highly productive and ecologically diverse island of mixed-grass prairie is also a great conservation opportunity.

Located about 35 miles southwest of Denver and about 30 miles northeast of Colorado Springs, the property lies along County Road 98 and 1/2 section east of County Road 5 in Elbert County, Colorado.  The property consists of approximately 560 acres of high yielding mixed grass prairie with an adjoining 80 acres of forested canyon area along both sides of Running Creek.

In addition to the state and federal tax incentives for protecting this property from future development, the mixed-grass prairie and the ecological diversity of the canyon area of the head-waters of Running Creek, (which meanders north to the South Platte River from the southern Black Forest area), are just a few of the reasons the Running Creek Preserve is an excellent candidate for a conservation easement.
