LOCATION Cochetopa Dome Ranch contains direct, year-round access from State Highway 114, between the towns of Gunnison to the north and Saguache to the south, arguably one of the most scenic highway tours Colorado has to offer. The 1,609-deeded acres reside at the base of Cochetopa Dome and is bound on (3) sides by BLM lands and Gunnison National Forest, significantly expanding the footprint of the ranch. Gunnison and the Mount Crested Butte Ski Resort are located within an approximate half-hour and one-hour drive, respectively. LAND & AGRICULTURE The tremendous water resources of the ranch and fertile valley bottomlands combine for hay production, cattle grazing and as a refuge for big game. An additional 500-acres +/- of adjoining BLM lands (transferable grazing permit through February 2029) increases carrying capacity. Current ownership leases summer grazing and hay production rights. The ranch is perimeter and cross fenced with a good set of working corrals. WATER West Pass Creek is a trout stream that extends the length of the deeded property. The creek contains a seemingly unlimited number of bends and pools, holding some very respectable brook and rainbow trout. The ranch also contains several springs, plus (2) sizable ponds for the waterfowl hunting and trout fishing. The meadows of the ranch are watered via irrigation ditches with a substantial 16.6 cfs water right along with a 600 gpm artesian well. WILDLIFE & HUNTING The ranch and surrounding public lands are home to very good populations of Elk and Mule Deer. Potential buyers should reference the State of Colorado’s Landowner Preference Program (LPP), which allows an owner of agricultural lands (greater than 160-acres) to apply for preferential big game licenses. The ranch is located in Colorado GMU’s 551 (west of SH 114) and 561 (east of SH 114). GMU 551 provides over-the-counter antlered elk tags for the very popular second and third season rifle hunts.
