Colorado fishing property for sale: “Cimarron” means “wild” in Spanish, and the Big Cimarron River Ranch in southwest Colorado uniquely combines wildness and comfort in a 391-acre package. Surrounded by spectacular cliffs, rock pinnacles and 12,000-foot peaks, the Big Cimarron River Ranch lies in a setting right out of a Hollywood Western, yet offers all the comforts of home in three beautifully-appointed cabins. Wildlife like mule deer, elk and black bear frequent the ranch, and nearly a mile of trout-filled river tumbles through the property. Power, phone and year-round access makes this piece of wild Colorado as attractive of a mountain retreat as can be found.
The Big Cimarron River Ranch is located approximately 16 miles south of the community of Cimarron, in the northern San Juan Mountains. Just up the valley lies Silver Jack Reservoir and thousands of acres of the Uncompahgre Wilderness in the Uncompahgre National Forest. Black Canyon National Park and the thriving small city of Montrose, with daily jet service, are but an hour away to the northwest. Nearby recreational opportunities comprise a embarrassment of riches: everything from hiking, jeeping, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, rock climbing, backpacking, wildlife photography, stream and lake fishing, big game hunting, mountain biking and even windsurfing are all available within an hour’s drive. If you enjoy a variety of outdoor recreation, you won’t be bored at the Big Cimarron River Ranch!
