The Running Wilder Ranch Summary
Running Wilder Ranch is one of the most diverse sporting opportunities for its size on the market today. From its sage bottom lands at 7,500 feet in altitude all the way up to its forested subalpine topping out at over 9,100 feet, the ranch offers everything from live water development, water fouling, upland bird and big game hunting opportunities. The ranch contains the headwaters of two named creeks including Elliott and Reeder creeks. There are multiple springs and a total of four ponds on the ranch plus an impressive 5.5 surface acre reservoir known as Moore Reservoir. Moore Reservoir in and of itself is a wildlife oasis and the ranch owns nearly half of the water rights associated with it. The water is refuge to waterfowl, Pronghorn Antelope, Elk, Mule Deer, Bear, Mountain Lion, Coyote, Hawk, Eagle, three different species of Grouse and myriad of other birds.
The ranch is just outside the town of Kremmling which is about 2 hours from Colorado most populous City of Denver in Colorado. Kremmling is a proud agricultural community. It boasts significant conveniences such as a national grocer, a general hospital, restaurants, shops and the private Kremmling/McElroy Airport (20V) accommodating up to light business jets (ARC B-II) with its 5,536 foot asphalt runway. Nestled in upper Colorado River watershed the ranch can be your jumping off point for the trout fishing rafting adventures on the Colorado River as well as access to a myriad of other trout fisheries such as the Williams Fork Reservoir and River, Muddy Creek, Blue River and a variety of other creeks and lakes. The ranch is central and within one hour of nearly every major attraction in the area. Steamboat Springs, Winter Park, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge and Vail all feature world class ski resorts.
The variety of roads on the ranch will take you to the ranch’s highpoint, its ponds and other boundaries. From the main gate at the ranch, you are 4 miles from Colorado State Highway 9 using County Road 387. Access is seasonal unless you have a snow machine, equipped side by side, snow cat or are interested in a Nordic skiing approach. Winter on the ranch is an incredibly private and peaceful experience. In fact, because of the topography on the ranch, some northerly aspects could offer a back country skiing experience contingent on winter conditions.
During the summer months, the ranch is leased to one of its single greatest assets- The Rusty Spurr. The Rusty Spurr is a premier horseback trail riding operation that runs throughout the ranch. This operation and the family that runs it provides a myriad of benefits to the ranch owner.
Running Wilder Ranch is currently a part of additional contiguous land owned by two partners who have stewarded the larger ranch for decades. The 700 +/- acre Running Wilder Ranch is offered here in the highest form of private land ownership: fee simple absolute interest.
