Here is your chance to own a piece of history. Wales Canyon Ranch is part of the original ranch of the famous Cattleman Charles Goodnight of Lonesome Dove. Wales Canyon Ranch is a wonderful mix of iconic Colorado native grass pasture, stunning forested canyon land, and expansive three hundred-and-sixty-degree views of nearby mountains and the distant plains. The ranch is conserved for future generations and offers three well located, diverse, building envelopes. Productive water well is in place and the water is piped to numerous stock tanks across the ranch which is fenced and cross fenced should the new owner wish to continue to run cattle. Wales Canyon Ranch is bordered by other conserved properties ensuring the privacy of the ranch forever.  Wildlife is abundant on the ranch both in the two canyons and in the meadows. Black bear, elk, mule deer, pronghorn, bobcat, turkey, coyote, and many other animals either call Wales Canyon Ranch home or frequently visit the water and shelter offered by this incredible property.

The location of the ranch is ideal with no mountain passes to cross to reach the ranch.  Pueblo, Colorado is about 35 minutes away and Colorado Springs is about an hour and a half. Interstate 25 is only 35 minutes away as well allowing speedy travel north to Denver and south to New Mexico and Texas. The ranch itself is a short drive off of a major well-maintained county road.  Access is year-round and the ranch itself has a fine network of roads that allow mobility to various parts of the property.  There is power to one of the homesites and a large corral and cattle penning area is in the same location.  Wales Canyon Ranch would make a superb retreat, cattle, hunting, or recreational ranch.  Perhaps the next owner will find, as the current owner has found it to be, incredible horse property with easy to difficult terrain to explore by horseback.  This ranch has it all at a price intended to sell quickly.
