Rarely does a Colorado ranch of this beauty and convenient location come on the market at such an attractive price. The Slash Bar 7 is comprised of 764± acres located on Log Hill Mesa just 4.5 miles from the prestigious Divide Club, between the towns of Ridgway and Telluride, Colorado. The land is relatively flat with McKenzie Creek cutting a shallow canyon through the middle of the property for about a mile. Covered with majestic ponderosa pines, Colorado blue spruce, hemlock fir trees and groves of aspens, it has huge open meadows with clusters of gambol oak and sage scattered across the south end of the mesa. There are panoramic views of the San Juan and Sneffles Ranges to the east and south of the property, and Grand Mesa to the north. The property is accessed from a four mile private drive off Ouray County Rd. 1. The elevation of the property is from 7500’ to about 8000’, putting the entire ranch in high alpine terrain. The Colorado property for sale is perimeter and cross fenced with good “two track” roads crisscrossing the ranch.
The Colorado ranch is home to a diverse cross section of animals and birds indigenous to high alpine terrain in SW Colorado, including elk, mule deer, black bear, mountain lion, marmot, blue grouse, bald eagles, golden eagles, red tailed hawks, Cooper’s hawks, and wild turkey. There are multitudes of song birds, humming birds, and ravens occupying the ranch during the various seasons of the year. It is not unusual to see herds of up to 100 elk grazing on the Colorado ranch throughout the summer and fall.
The Slash Bar 7 Ranch is a gorgeous 764± acre ranch located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. While it is rugged and wild, it is also located just a few minutes from a beautiful golf club, restaurants, shops, and a multitude of out-door activities for the whole family. The views, terrain, fauna, and wildlife on the ranch are as good as it gets anywhere in the Rockies. Combine its proximity to Telluride, Montrose, Ridgway, and Ouray, and you have one of the best ranch ownership opportunities in Colorado.
