Muddy Creek Ranch Colorado: Private hunting preserves may be imagined as features of nineteenth-century England, but an excellent one exists today in the foothills of the Wet Mountains, only 25 minutes southwest of Pueblo, Colorado. Almost unbelievably, in the midst of one of the fastest-growing sections of the Rockies, the Muddy Creek Ranch remains an undisturbed refuge of pines, streams and wildlife.
The Muddy Creek Ranch is unique in several respects that should capture the interest of sportsmen and investors alike. First, the ranch is a nicely-blocked, extensive tract of undeveloped land comprising 3,504 deeded acres, and 4,144 total acres. Second, its stands of ponderosa pine, Douglas fir and scrub oak are in prime condition and ideal habitat for mule deer, elk, bear and turkey. Third, water is abundant on the ranch, including three miles of Muddy Creek and several springs and ponds. Fourth, year-round access is amazingly convenient for such an unspoiled parcel. The pleasant residential community of Colorado City lies just beyond its eastern boundary, and Interstate 25 is only five miles distant, placing it within an hour of Colorado Springs and only two hours from Denver.
