Property Description

Wildlife Mecca! Elkhorn Ranch is a true sportsman’s retreat with a unique setting and convince to downtown Durango. The property consists of 880-acres of open meadows, Ponderosa Pine, Gamble Oak woodlands, and mountainside parks. The topography creates a very private holding that is further enhanced by an additional 1,800-acres of BLM land that can only be accessed by a few other private properties, providing the ultimate large acreage hunting retreat. The landscape and water attracts abundant wild game including elk, mule deer, black bear, mountain lion, and turkey. And, the private access to this retreat is unrivaled by its network of over 17-miles of graded ATV trails crisscrossing the terrain, making the entire property easily accessible during hunting season, along with providing trails to enjoy hiking and horseback riding. Consequently, the ranch has been enjoyed as a private family hunting refuge for several decades. You can purchase over the counter elk tags in unit 75 for archery season, second and third season, and draw for first and fourth season. The current owners have been successful every season and the ranch also qualifies for the landowner preference program. The main complex consists of a 4,760 sq. ft 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on two levels and is perfect for large families or groups, a bunkhouse with kitchen and bath, a two bay shop and equipment storage. There’s also an open sided barn (horse barn and tack room). The ranching facilities are first class. There is smooth wire fencing for the two horse pastures and the entire boundary line is fenced to support seasonal cattle grazing to keep your ag-status. There are also 5 springs, 3 ponds, 4 wells, and 4 stock tanks on the property. Additional options could include a corporate or commercial Sportsman’s Retreat, and/or an exclusive development. Enjoy the privacy of this property while still being able to experience the vibrant beat of Historic Downtown Durango only 20 minutes away. Durango boasts shops, galleries, museums, many fine restaurants, Fort Lewis College, Music in the Mountains, community recreation center, multiple golf courses, parks, and the famous Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. To the north are the impressive San Juan Mountains that provide excellent skiing each winter and hiking, mountain biking, rafting and fly fishing on the Animas River each summer. To the south and west are mesas in the open high desert with rock climbing, archeology and horseback riding.
