Ridge Creek Ranch Colorado:Many consider the North Fork of the Gunnison Valley as the best of all worlds. Apple, cherry, and peach orchards and even vineyards grace the valley floor, while the wildlife and trout-rich Grand Mesa rises to 11,000 feet directly to the north. In the middle of this grandeur lies the Ridge Creek Ranch, roughly 1700 acres of prime foothills property blessed with two miles of Leroux Creek and an incredible 11,000 square foot Lodge that sets the standard for luxury living. Turn-key ready, Ridge Creek Ranch easily exceeds expectations for big game hunting, stream fishing, trail riding on the ranch itself, and many other recreational activities are but a stone’s throw away on public lands year-round.
Situated at roughly 7500 feet only 20 minutes from the small community of Hotchkiss, Ridge Creek Ranch boasts a variety of foothill habitats, including pinon/juniper forests, aspen groves, oak brush, irrigated meadows, and riparian areas. With a milder climate, wildlife thrives here year round, including mule deer, elk, mountain lions, and black bears. Big game hunting is a proven asset on the ranch, with its trophy mule deer being especially noteworthy. The ranch qualifies for mule deer landowner tags, and elk tags are available over the counter.
