Two Rivers Ranch is 1,168± deeded acres in Conejos County, Colorado. Anchored by irrigated hay meadows, grazing lands, and water rights, it boasts great frontage on the Rio Grande and Conejos Rivers. Located in the Central Flyway, there’s good hunting and fishing, and the ranch is surrounded by vast amounts of public and conserved lands. Amazing wildlife includes elk, deer, ducks, geese, bald eagle, and sandhill crane. The mountain views are gorgeous and the water resources are vast. Cottonwoods and willows line riparian areas and there are wetlands created by irrigation, the Conejos diversion, and unique “warm springs”. Lying 15 miles southeast of booming Alamosa, Colorado, thousands of acres of BLM adjoin on the east, and 17,000 acres of a new State Wildlife Area lie across the river to the west.

Two Rivers Ranch has dramatic views of every kind, but the mountains and hills are the land features that get little mention since the focus is often on the beautiful rivers. To the north, you have the 4th highest summit in the Rocky Mountains! Snow-capped Blanca Peak is one of Colorado’s celebrated “Fourteeners” – 58 mountain peaks that hikers put on their bucket lists to climb. To the east, you see the Brownie Hills in the new San Luis Hills Wildlife Area. And back to the west, you have the Sierra Del Ojito, as discussed in the History section of this brochure.

About the area: In 1807, Captain Zebulon Pike came to the San Luis Valley exploring the Louisiana Purchase. With a crew of soldiers, he made his way six miles up the Conejos from its confluence with the Rio Grande, then built a fort and raised an American Flag. This historic location is less than two miles from the subject property, just up the Conejos River. You can visit it because the Colorado State Historical Society erected a dramatic stockade to commemorate the event. Today it is managed in conjunction with the nearby Fort Garland Museum. Interestingly, this description of the Pike’s Stockade also describes the western edge of Two Rivers Ranch perfectly; “…..…..a well-timbered spot on the Conejos at the foot of the 600-foot rise of Sierro Del Ojito, a promising lookout point, with a hot spring nearby that keeps water flowing year-round.”
