Monument Butte Ranch, Colorado: Northwestern Colorado overflows with features that echo the Old West: seemingly endless miles of gorgeous, unpopulated territory, scores of hidden valleys, vistas that extend forever and grand herds of elk that number in the thousands of animals. With 21,793 acres to its name, the massive Monument Butte Ranch southwest of Steamboat Springs is the “prime cut” of Northwestern Colorado, a ranch that has for 30 years been operated as one of the finest wildlife rich ranches in the state.

Monument Butte Ranch is without question one of the largest, contiguous mountain ranches remaining in the state of Colorado, having escaped for generations the slicing up of once-magnificent properties into lesser parcels. This expansive spread covers over 34 square miles on the north flank of the Flat Tops, occupying elevations from 6800 to 8600 feet. The ranch contains thousands of acres of excellent big game habitat consisting of rolling hills, thickets of oak brush, aspen forests, open meadows and pockets of dark timber. Numerous small permanent streams run through the ranch and over 30 reservoirs have been created. As a result, wildlife thrives here in large numbers, including a portion of what has been termed the nation’s largest elk herd.

For over 30 years, Monument Butte Ranch has been operated as a corporate hunting retreat, and it has been expertly-managed to provide optimum habitat for elk and mule deer. Hunters can explore for days via the ranch’s extensive road network and never hunt the same valley twice. A large resident elk herd ensures that bulls and cows are always present, and in the late fall, additional animals pass through from the high country on their way to winter range. Elk tags are offered over-the-counter, and the ranch qualifies for landowner deer tags.

Although the ranch has been left largely undeveloped, as is appropriate for such a magnificent piece of property, an attractive 4900 square foot lodge has been constructed that contains 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, perfect for large hunting parties or family gatherings. A 2100 square foot manager’s home is also included, as well as two small cabins, two barns and several outbuildings. Two deeded county roads allow excellent access to both the west and east sides of the ranch.

Although hunting is the prime draw at Monument Butte, it is also suitable for summer cattle grazing, and it contains hundreds of irrigated and sub-irrigated acres of meadows. Several of its 30+ reservoirs contain trout, and many could be further developed to make this property an outstanding stillwater fishing destination.

Not the least of the attractions of Monument Butte Ranch is its proximity to the world-class ski town of Steamboat Springs, with its vast cultural attractions in both winter and summer seasons. The resort is only an hour drive away and the Yampa Valley Regional Airport that connects Steamboat to the world with commercial air service is only 35 minutes to the north.

Harrigan Land Company seldom sees mountain ranches of this size appear on the market in Colorado. We believe that Monument Butte Ranch is an exceptional find for those looking for a one-of-a-kind hunting property with excellent investment potential. Hunters will thrill at the numbers of deer and elk here, and investors will appreciate the ranch’s low maintenance and minimal holding costs. In any event, if you’d thought that ranches of this scale in Colorado had gone extinct with the grizzly bear, it may be time to take a serious look at Monument Butte Ranch, where you can have both the best of the Old West and the best of the New West close at hand!
