Freshwater Ranch Summary

Lying at the top of Currant Creek Pass, above all other private land holdings, is the 1,540+/- acre Freshwater Ranch. The ranch boasts classic South Park, Colorado sweeping views and the added unique characteristics of timberland found above 9,000 feet in elevation.

The ranch is available for sale in three configurations: as a single 1,540+/- acre offering, as the eastern 640+/- acre offering or as the western 900+/- acre offering.

Freshwater Ranch is draped on three sides by Pike National Forrest. In addition to being at the top of Currant Creek Pass, no other private holding of this size in the area can claim this kind of exposure to public land. More than half of the ranch’s 7 mile perimeter borders the National Forrest. The ranch rests on the shoulder of the hulking, heavily treed 11,548-foot Thirtynine Mile Mountain. As a result the ranch is a private haven for all the wild game that take advantage of this high-altitude timber. There is not a single trail cut on Thirtynine Mile Mountain affording those with the backdoor access Freshwater Ranch provides an exclusive and private experience whether hunting, hiking or horsebackriding. Elk, Mule Deer, Bear, Pornghorn and other species reside on and around Currant Creek Pass and they all water themselves on the ranch’s four ponds.

Nearby attractions and amenities include Antero, Spinney Mountain and Elevenmile Canyon Reservoirs and their tributaries including the Dream Stream collectively feature an abundance of world class fishing opportunities to appease conventional and fly fisherman alike. The town of Guffey, the ranch’s hometown, is just south of ranch by 7 miles. About 30 minutes south are the conveniences and attractions of Canon City including restaurants and grocery stores as well as Colorado’s Royal Gorge. About an hour north is the ski town of Breckenridge. With international air service about an hour away, nearby conveniences and attractions, sporting and adventure in the National Forrest outside the ranch’s backdoor and the agricultural opportunities to run cattle, the Freshwater Ranch truly affords it’s owner the opportunity to do it all.

"The ranch boasts nearly 4 miles of its 7 mile perimeter bordering Pike National Forrest. The four ponds provide respite for livestock and big game alike."
