Crossbones Ranch on Tarryall Creek Colorado: First settled during the great mining rush of 1859, the Tarryall Creek Valley produced riches of placer gold for a few lucky prospectors. Today, the gold is long gone, but abundant riches still remain in the valley in the form of wildlife, lovely vistas, a trout-filled river, and a pervasive peacefulness worth much more than gold. Crossbones Ranch lies in the heart of this magical valley, and would be a perfect location for a dream home, small recreational ranch, trophy fishing property or even a corporate retreat situated not far from some of Colorado’s greatest urban areas.

The Crossbones Ranch is located at an elevation of about 8700 feet, and occupies about 80 acres in the heart of the Tarryall Creek Valley, only about four miles from the once-bustling boomtown of Tarryall. Most of the ranch lies in a rich grassy meadow, bordered by hills supporting stands of ponderosa pine and aspen. Other small ranches dot the valley, but they are not crowded together, and thus Crossbones Ranch offers room to breathe.
