Colorado ranches for sale: The 10,000-plus acre Motherwell Ranch can rightfully lay claim as one of Colorado’s legendary properties. It would, in fact, be hard to custom design a finer piece of land that is better suited for a combination of cattle, horses, big game hunting and trophy trout fishing in a package that is only 20 minutes from a commercial airport, and 45 minutes from the world famous ski area at Steamboat Springs.
Situated on the north side of the Beaver Flat Tops mountains, the ranch boasts over 2500 feet of gradual elevation drop, and thus includes habitat ranging from dark timber spruce, to aspen, oakbrush, grasslands and sagebrush. Large resident herds of elk and mule deer thrive here, migrating up and down slope with the seasons. Hunting for these species is superb, as well as for black bear and mountain lion. Over three miles of the mid-sized Williams Fork River brim with wild cutthroat and rainbow trout that rise readily to a fly, and six lakes, up to 16 acres, offer trophy stillwater fishing.
