Alpine Ridge Ranch embodies the true flavor of the Southwestern Colorado ranch lifestyle. Comprised of 270-acres in an alpine setting, this Ranch is spread out over varying terrain, including lush green meadows, rolling stands of Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir and Blue Spruce, and cliff edges overlooking massive canyons where ancient Indian’s hunted during the summer months.
The Ranch is located within 30 minutes of downtown Durango and just a short drive to the small towns of Mancos, Dolores and Cortez. Elevations on the ranch range between 7600 to 8200 feet. The property straddles a natural ridge that runs from north to south and borders 6000 acres of BLM and State of Colorado lands on three sides.
Wildlife on the Ranch is epic and includes Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Wild Turkey, Mountain Lion, Black Bear, Coyote and Fox. Birds of Prey include Bald & Golden Eagles, Red Tail Hawks, and the occasional Falcon. Mature Oaks interspersed around the large meadows on the eastern side of the Ranch provide excellent cover for many big game animals. These areas would be perfect for one or more sitting blinds. On the back side (west side) of the Ranch is a series of hidden meadows surrounded by big Pines and Fir trees. This area drops down into Joe’s Canyon, which is so remote that there has been little human activity nearby.
Access to the Ranch is via an easement over BLM and State of Colorado land. There is a well maintained BLM road that brings you right to the new gated entryway, complete with a “barbed wire” gate and beautifully designed post chaparral. A two-track road has been cut through the heart of the Ranch leading one from the north entrance all the way to the southernmost point. This makes traversing the property easy.
Views of the surrounding mountains and valleys are stunning. To the north are the 13,000 foot snowcapped La Plata Mountains; to the west are Sleeping Ute and Mesa Verde National Park; to the south you can see into East Canyon, Shiprock and all the way into Northern New Mexico and Arizona; to the east are views towards Pagosa Springs and the Weminuche Wilderness area.
