Elk Ridge Ranch is a Colorado mountain property offered by Mossy Oak Properties of Colorado. It is close to historic Hartsell, off US highway 24 and it is 90 minutes from Denver, and 45 minutes from Breckenridge.

Elk Ridge Ranch in Colorado is raw land that can be developed any way you want. 85% of the land is usable. But whatever you decide, there are many advantages to this stunning ranch.

There is so much to explore. The scenery surrounding the ranch is magnificent. From the majestic Rocky Mountains to the rolling hills, there is a lot of beautiful countryside to appreciate.

If you are an enthusiastic hiker or fly fisherman, this Colorado forest land for sale borders onto acreage owned by the Bureau of Land Management. There are six miles of river for trout fishing. You can hike to the public lands of Middle Fork of the South Platte River from the ranch.

For hunters, close to the ranch is the James Mark Wright Wilderness Area in Trophy Game Management Unit # 50 for great hunting and is well known for its trophy mule deer. There are a number of hunting outfits available that will guide you and dress your meat for you.

For something completely different take your family or guests on an early morning balloon ride. Colorado Hot Air Balloon Rides is open from May to early October. What a thrill it will be when you float over the rolling hills of the South Park Valley, enjoying the view of herds of bison or 36 of the 54 peaks of the Rocky Mountain which are over 14,000 ft. South Park Valley is a National Heritage Area situated 9,000-10,000 feet above sea level located in the geographic center of Colorado.

For a step back into the past, historic Hartsel is conveniently located nearby. Hartsel is also known as “The Heart of Colorado” It was founded in 1880 by an enterprising rancher, Sam Hartsel. He was one of the most successful cattlemen in Colorado.

On Hartsel, he built a sawmill, blacksmith shop, and a trading post. He also developed Hartsel Hot Springs which is now in ruins.

There are a lot of fun things to do there. You can browse the stores, eat at the Highline Café and Salon or go fishing on the South Platte River.  Enjoy Hartsel Days on the first weekend in August which has a lot of activities.

One thing that is great about Elk Ridge Ranch in Colorado is that there are things to do year-round. There are many state parks nearby, each with its own individual character. Spinney Mountain State Park, for example, has great fishing, camping, hiking and wildlife. Once the summer activities wind down, the winter activities gear up.
