Speaking of Elk
Williams Fork Mountain Ranch offers diverse habitat, all favorable to elk. The animals thrive in the weather and climate. Elk tags are available over the counter, and the ranch qualifies for 19 landowner deer applications.
Stands of aspen oak brush break up the rolling grasslands for cover and grazing. They enjoy several springs and seeps, ponds, and drinkers. The property hosts eight wells and the perennial East Fork of the Williams Fork River. In addition, over a thousand acres of dryland farming on the northside of the ranch draws big game, mule deer (30-inch-wide racks in the past), pronghorns, black bears, mountain lions and grouse.
Among Colorado mountain ranches for sale, this marvelous real estate offers good access to unlimited recreation. A network of trails and well-maintained roads passes through the 13,395 deeded acres and adjacent 2050 leased BLM acres. These offer easy warm-weather access for vehicles, ATVs, four-wheelers, mountain bikes, and hiking. Add snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ski touring during the winter months.
On the ranch is a quarter mile section of the East Fork of the Williams Fork River. It offers rainbows and cutthroats up to 20 inches. Ranch ponds could be developed to hold fatter trout, also. Minutes away is the Yampa River where float fishers reel in 18- to 24-inch brown and rainbow trout.
