Property Description

Carbon Peak Ranch is a spectacular sporting ranch property in the Ohio Creek Valley of Gunnison County. With 1350+/- acres, the ranch lies at the base of and part way up Carbon Peak. The property is flanked by the Anthracite Range and the Whetstone Mountains with breathtaking views of the Castle Mountains perched within the nearby West Elk Wilderness Area. The ranch features nearly a mile of Carbon Creek, a trout fishery that is heavily lined with willows and beaver ponds. Carbon Peak Ranch grades upward from its bottomland pastures and irrigated meadows into sagebrush uplands, aspen groves and dense stands of pine timber. The property has historically been a working ranch and is primarily now used for a variety of recreational pursuits and summer livestock grazing. The property is enhanced with ample irrigation and stock water rights along with numerous natural springs. Wildlife flourish on the property including mule deer, elk, moose, bear, sage and blue grouse as well as a variety of small animals such as beaver, badger and coyote. From a sporting ranch perspective, Carbon Peak Ranch is a mountain recreation mecca well suited for hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, biking, snowmobiling and 4-wheeling. The property is unimproved other than water developments, fences, corrals and an old residential site. There is plenty of open space on Carbon Peak Ranch for peaceful reflection and renewal, family outings or pure outdoor fun. The sheer beauty of the area with its mountain setting and views are true Colorado Rocky Mountain splendor.
