Singing River Ranch is one of Colorado’s most scenic, exclusive, and pristine ranches, nestled in a protected river valley at the base of Blanca Peak in the Sangre De Cristo Range. This approximately 6,100-acre ranch has end-of-the-road privacy walled by mountains on either side with rivers, creeks and ponds, alpine terrain, irrigated meadows, rolling hills, and glades of aspen, pine, spruce, and fir. It represents one of the last private holdings in this spectacular valley with views of surrounding 14,000-foot peaks and adjoining national forest and wilderness that rival the Alps and Andes.
Situated in southern Colorado at the headwaters of the Huerfano River, the ranch has valuable wildlife habitat for trophy elk and mule deer, with bear and bighorn sheep, as well as several other mammals and raptors. The river, creeks, and ponds offer fly-fishing for native Rio Grande Cutthroat and other trout species. Singing River’s diverse terrain and adjacency to hundreds of thousands of acres of national forest affords endless recreational opportunities including mountaineering on the neighboring peaks, pack trips to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, hiking, biking or solitude in your own private wilderness. The ranch also offers high quality grazing for cattle with ample grasses and water, and it currently leases 14,200 acres of National Forest as well as BLM and State lands.
Within the river valley floor is the main headquarters with exquisitely landscaped grounds highlighted by the Huerfano River that meanders through the compound fashioning several stocked ponds. This area contains two custom log homes, a beautifully restored five-bedroom bunkhouse, and barn. There is also a historic fishing/hunting cabin at the base of another pond higher up on the ranch, ultimately leading to a Patagonia inspired refugio cabin with incomparable views in a wilderness setting.
This is a unique chance to own a private recreational ranch with significant conservation values in a spectacular setting with abundant wildlife and recreational opportunities.
