The 4,805 acre White Ranch boasts pivot irrigated farm ground, high-quality grazing, and terrific hunting along 3.5 miles of the Cimarron River in southeast Colorado. The 320 acres of irrigated corn lie next to the heavy cottonwood/tamarisk cover of the river bottom, providing ideal habitat for good numbers of elk, whitetail deer, and mule deer. Bobwhite quail are abundant in normal moisture years. There are 15 water wells on the property, with capacity and permits for irrigation of 740 acres, presenting an incredible opportunity for further wildlife habitat enhancement and production capacity.

White Ranch is approximately 12 miles northwest of Elkhart, Kansas and 52 miles southeast of Springfield, Colorado in Baca County, Colorado. The property is composed of 320 acres of center pivot irrigated farm ground (traditionally corn), approximately 1,700 acres of wooded river bottomland, and approximately 2,365 acres of pasture. The ranch is rated for 300 cow/calf pairs or 600 yearlings year-round, and includes a 300 head capacity feed lot.

Wildlife is abundant at White Ranch. This property benefits from the ideal (and unusual for this area) combination of irrigated corn circles lying directly adjacent to the wooded Cimarron River bottomland, creating ideal bedding and feeding habitat for trophy whitetail deer, mule deer, and elk. During normal moisture years, bobwhite quail densities along and adjacent to the river are as high as anywhere in North America.

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.
