Elevations range from approximately 8,000 to 10,000 feet and Hughes Ditch traverses the full length of the property. There is approximately ¼ mile of Fall Creek frontage as well as 2.25 miles of National Forest, BLM, and State Land adjacency. The property is unencumbered by any conservation easements and is located in a high-value area for Land Trusts. It would be an excellent candidate for conservation if a new owner is so inclined.

The Ranch is located in Game Management Unit 70, which offers over-the-counter elk hunting tags, limited mule deer tags, and healthy populations of both species. The ranch qualifies for the Colorado Landowner Preference Program, which potentially offers additional landowner mule deer tags. Situated within a designated elk winter range, great big-game hunting and viewing opportunities abound. There is also a ¼ mile of Fall Creek frontage to try your hand at catching a few native trout. The ranch borders the nearly 1 million-acre Uncompahgre National Forest that contains the incredible Lizard Head Wilderness Area and numerous 14,000-foot mountain peaks. The 2.25 miles of Public Lands adjacency makes the ranch feel much larger and expands the scope of recreational opportunities tremendously.
