Description

Eagle Canyon Ranch Eagle Canyon Ranch is a slice of Rocky Mountain paradise hidden in plain sight. Although only 1.5 hours from the Front Range metropolis of Colorado Springs and 3 hours from Denver, Eagle Canyon Ranch is shielded from the urban bustle by the Wet Mountain Range to the east and the legendary Sangre de Cristo Range to the west. As a result, Eagle Canyon remains an unspoiled place of respite and refuge where the rugged West still reigns. Eagle Canyon Ranch is a well-blocked parcel encompassing 2, 369± acres at an elevation of about 8000 feet, about 10 miles northeast of the "twin cities" of Westcliffe and Silver Cliff. One of the largest remaining parcels in Custer County, Eagle Canyon Ranch brims with scenic beauty created by an ever-changing combination of granite outcroppings, small meadows and forests of pinion pine, juniper and spruce and fir. Mountain views abound, of both the Sangre de Cristos, reaching far above treeline at over 14, 000 feet, and the nearer forested peaks of the Wet Mountains. Presently undeveloped, the ranch is perfectly situated for a variety of recreational activities. Healthy mule deer and elk herds roam through the ranch itself and on the bordering BLM land, including the Upper Grape Creek Wilderness Area. As a draw only unit for both deer and elk, Unit 69 holds many trophies of both species. Mountain lion and black bear are also found in the area. Grape Creek flows just west of the ranch, and miles of public fishing for 10- to 14-inch brown and rainbow trout are available on this "sleeper stream" by only a short 4WD trip from the ranch. Lake anglers will appreciate the waters of Deweese Reservoir, only a few miles upstream, with its combination of trout, smallmouth bass and huge tiger muskies. Eagle Canyon Ranch can also serve as a headquarters for mountain biking and horseback riding, both on and off the ranch property, OHVing, and even rock climbing on scores of granite outcrops on the property. Mountaineers will find plenty of summits in the Sangre de Cristos, including the famed Fourteeners of Crestone Peak, Crestone Needle and Humboldt Peak, just a few miles away. Photographers will discover endless photo opportunities every season of the year, and the area's dark skies are internationally recognized as some of the best in the world for astronomical observations. Visionary owners will delight in several amazing building sites on the ranch, each with remarkable views and precious privacy. Although no power is on the ranch, it is nearby. The property could also be a showcase for off grid living. The potential for an environmentally friendly lodge or retreat at Eagle Canyon is outstanding. Currently within a grazing lease, Eagle Canyon ranch also supports cattle on a seasonal basis and provides some income. The small twin communities of Westcliffe (Custer County seat) and Silver Cliff are only about ten miles away and are accessible by county road year-round. These towns offer groceries, gas, schools, airstrip, and a medical center. The larger community of Canon City is only slightly farther to the north, and Pueblo is less than an hour to the east. At Eagle Canyon, you'll be both "away from it all" and "close to it all." Within the rapidly growing Front Range corridor, large ranches like Eagle Canyon are increasingly uncommon. We at M4 Ranch Group believe that those with a vision for working with what the land already offers will find much to appreciate here. Whether it is a dream home, a lodge or simply "keeping it as it is, " we'd love to introduce you to this slice of Rocky Mountain paradise hidden in plain sight.

Testimonials

We chose Sigrid Cottrell based on a local recommendation and extensive knowledge of the Crested Butte, Colorado market as we were new to the area. She did not disappoint! Admittedly, we were not the easiest clients to work with as we had a very long "must have" list (to say the least). Sigrid  went way above and beyond throughout the entire process, and that even included setting up short notice appointments with reputable contractors, which in itself was no easy feat. As we worked with her, it soon became apparent she was more concerned that we find the right property versus her profiting from her commission on the sale. Sigrid's professionalism, enthusiastic and positive attitude, as well as her flexibility made the process very enjoyable. She was dependable, detail oriented and her knowledge was reflected in all elements of the process. If we are ever in need of a Real Estate professional in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to call upon Sigrid Cottrell and highly recommend her to any one who is! aeromosa
