Located less than two miles from the Wyoming border, Independence Mountain Ranch lies dead center in the bullseye of legendary outdoor recreation. This undeveloped 362-acre parcel sits at roughly 8500 feet on the flanks of sprawling Independence Mountain at the northern gateway of North Park, just 30 minutes from Walden, Colorado. Almost completely surrounded by public lands, this ranch feels much larger than it is, and provides the height of privacy to those seeking a Rocky Mountain getaway in the heart of classic mountain scenery.
Independence Mountain Ranch spreads over a variety of terrain and vegetation on the east side of Independence Mountain. Pine forests, grasslands, aspen groves and some burn scars create varied habitat within several small drainages that is ideal for wildlife. Numerous seeps and springs provide water sources, and hunting is excellent for mule deer, elk, and pronghorn. Moose, black bear, mountain lions and probably wolves also roam the area. Elk tags are available over the counter and the ranch qualifies for landholder deer tags. Trophy mule deer hunting can be found just over the Wyoming border, and some of magnificent bucks visit Independence Mountain Ranch as well.
