Wild Basin Ranch Colorado ranches for sale in: Wild Basin Ranch is a rare find in the heart of Colorado’s Front Range. A high mountain retreat and wildlife haven only ten miles from Estes Park. It is comprised primarily of a vast meadow fringed by aspens and ponderosa pines. This 154-acre property features remarkably scenic views and privacy, yet it is readily accessible via a year-round county road.
An ideal retreat for those who own their own plane. Wild Basin Ranch includes an airplane hangar and an airstrip. The property is also fully fenced, allowing for grazing in the rich grasses of the meadow. Conservation easements preserve the majority of this property as-is. Building envelopes do permit construction of a cabin or home.
The wildlife value of Wild Basin Ranch is high. Mule deer, black bear, moose and turkey are all found on this property, but the primary visitors are elk, which fill the meadow almost every evening. As a result, elk hunting is second to none here and on the adjacent National Forest. Several springs also water the meadow, and could be readily developed into trophy trout ponds.
Uncrowded properties like Wild Basin Ranch within ten miles of Rocky Mountain National Park and yet only 90 minutes from Denver are a vanishing breed. With continued careful management, it will be a retreat that both the owners and the elk will appreciate for years to come.
