Premier Recreational Ranch Sells: Sits 7400+ Feet in Colorado’s Williams Fork Valley
Mid-sized, high-quality Colorado ranches for sale come rarely available. That is one reason why these buyers just bought themselves a premier recreational ranch in Colorado, Osterhouse Ranch. Offering a piece of superb hunting and fishing territory, the large undeveloped Western ranch lies along a prime section of the East Fork of the Williams Fork Valley. It’s 1874 acres span mountain elevations from 7400 feet to 8800 feet.
Outstanding Recreational Ranch for Sale
The value of the ranch begins with its stature as a scenic fly fishing and hunting property, plus it lends itself to horseback riding and cross-country ski excursions. The wide stream ranges from 20 to 40 feet in width. Its visit to Osterhouse Ranch extends for about a quarter mile where aquatic insects populate the area.
The East Fork holds abundant trophy trout, and a healthy population of rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and cuttbow hybrids in the riffles, runs, and pools. Mature fish grow from 14 inches to 24 inches. Additional fishing opportunities could be developed on some of the stillwater ponds and adjudicated springs on the ranch.
Hunters find elk, black bear, and mule deer on the property. Big game find habitat here near the water sources combined with thick woodlands–aspen, spruce and pine–and grassy meadows. Cottonwood and oak brush linger on the valley bottom. Recreational value of the very private ranchland is boosted by its seclusion between other large ranches and Routt National Forest on the southern boundary.
Deeded year-round access from County Road 55 and proximity to the commercial airport in Hayden puts Osterhouse within reach any time. It is about an hour southwest of skiing at Steamboat Springs. This is one ranch for sale with unending outdoor opportunities in every direction.
