Are you looking for a hobby farm, horse property, cattle grazing, hunting property, or recreational ranch? Lorrayne Ranch located near Guffey, Colorado is ideal for any and all of these purposes. The ranch is a property that has outstanding elk and mule deer hunting, terrific ATV terrain, equestrian trails, live water creek, cattle pasture, water rights, and the ability to raise a hay crop. Two local landmark mountains are on the ranch, all of 9,520 ft McIntyre Mountain and a large portion of 10,040 ft. Castle Mountain including the peak. With the average elevation of the lower ranch land around 8500 ft, there is a large variety of wildlife and plant life on the ranch. Fourmile Creek meanders through historic hay meadows which are currently being utilized for horse and mule pasture.
Hunting has been outstanding on the ranch with elk and mule deer being taken regularly during the hunting season. The ranch has been leased to a commercial hunting guide in the past and depending on the new owners wishes that may or may not be continued. It isn’t unusual to see a large herd of elk somewhere on the ranch, grazing, visiting a water hole, or laying up in the dark timber on the backside of one of the two mountains on the ranch.
Improvements on the ranch are generally historic, yet very functional. There are a barn and numerous agricultural buildings which include animal shelters, hay shelter, chicken coop, workshop, bunkroom, and, to the owner’s knowledge, the last free-standing silo in Park County. Two homes are on the property. Neither is a trophy home but both are clean, well kept, and utilitarian. The property may be sold with or without the improvements and 35 acres they sit on.
