The Wet Mountain Ranch is set in the gorgeous high alpine country just southwest of Wetmore, Colorado. This 346 acre property offers a multitude of recreational activities and complete seclusion.  The property lies along the slopes of Rudolph Mountain and adjoins the San Isabel National Forest on its northern and eastern boundaries.  This part of the National Forest is inaccessible by the public which offers this ranch its own private use of 1,000’s of acres of additional high alpine country.  The land is classic Colorado high alpine country with lush meadows, aspen groves, spruce and pine forest, beautiful wild flowers, a mountain creek, pond, and active springs. The tree cover is diverse and consists of Aspen, Douglas Fir, Spruce, Ponderosa and Bristlecone Pine. There are spectacular mountain and valley views in many locations and several miles of interior roads to access all portions of the ranch.  Properties in this area are held in families for generations and rarely come on the market.  This property is extremely unique and there are many possibilities here including family legacy ranch, hunting property, horses, ATV use, camping, or building additional cabins.  Come see and experience Wet Mountain Ranch…once you are here you will never want to leave!

  • WILDLIFE AND RECREATION:
  • The land is located in Game Management Unit 84 and shares its northern and eastern boundaries with the San Isabel National Forest.  Mule deer, bear, Ptarmigan and turkey are seen regularly in and around the property and elk herds are often seen grazing in the meadows and around the pond during early morning and early evening hours.  The terrain, water resources, forage, and protective bedding areas on this ranch combine to create the ideal elk habitat.  The Ranch is currently enrolled in the  the Landowner Preference Program (LPP) allowing for the potential to obtain additional game tags each year.  Equestrians would love this property as there are old trails running through most of the property offering a scenic area for riding horses.  Wet Mountain Ranch is protected by a conservation easement held by the San Isabel Land Protection Trust. The conservation easement allows for all uses that are normal and customary for mountain ranches and even offers the flexibility to build additional cabins.
