Winding River Ranch is located less than 30 miles from Buena Vista, Buena Vista Central Colorado Regional Airport, and 10 minutes by paved State Highway 285 south of Fairplay. It encompasses a highly diverse block of 5,967 acres (3,965 deeded) that lies at 9,300 feet just below the continental divide which includes some of Colorado's famous 14,000-foot peaks. The lower reaches of the ranch include a rich wetland complex that supports nearly five miles of world-class private fishing on the highly regarded South Fork of the South Platte River. The upper reaches of the ranch include steeper, timbered terrain that offers private trophy quality elk and deer hunting with rare hunting tags. There is enough land to support modest hay production, summer grazing for livestock and horses, and three irrigated food plots, although fish and wildlife are the crop of choice for the current owners. The ranch has an extensive common boundary with the Pike National Forest and boasts dramatic postcard-quality views of Pike's Peak to the south and Teller and Hoosier Ridges along the continental divide to the north. To further ice this cake it is a short 45-minute drive to Breckenridge Ski Resort and only a 90-minute drive to Denver/DIA. The turnkey improvements are comfortable, useful, appropriate but not over the top in any way. In summary, Winding River Ranch pretty much has it all: great fishing, quality hunting, terrific scenery, good privacy plus easy access to major international air service, to an attractive small town, and to a destination ski resort.
