This property is the one of the oldest recorded homesteads in Custer County and remnants of the old homestead buildings are seen today.

The ranch is located just of Highway 165 and approximately 45 minutes southwest of Pueblo, Colorado. The land is classic Colorado high alpine country with lush meadows, aspen groves, spruce and pine forest, beautiful wild flowers, a mountain creek and active spring. There are spectacular mountain and valley views in many locations and 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. The ranch has a small rustic hunting camp with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath and has electricity, telephone and a state permitted well. The camp also has an attached workshop, storage area and carport. In addition there is a large detached metal barn for vehicles, tools and equipment. Entrance to the ranch is gated and locked. Numerous building sites exist for a new cabin or lodge with easy access to electric. Mule deer, bear and turkey are seen regularly in and around the property and elk herds are often seen grazing in the meadows 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. On several visits to the property during the fall months, bulls were heard bugling down the timbered hillsides.
