Forest Park Ranch encompasses 2,215 deeded acres of exceptional well-maintained land and has all the features of an outstanding Colorado ranch property. It borders 6,200 acres of Forest Service land, is situated in Game Management Unit 771, has no conservation easement, is fenced on three sides, and is under ag status with the forestry program.
The ranch has 600 acres under habitat enhancement with more than 30 years of aggressive restoration efforts. Washout and erosion points have been mitigated on a huge portion of the ranch, and thousands of tree stumps have been removed. The result of these efforts is a park-like setting. An abundance of wildlife now make the ranch their home including hundreds of resident elk, mule deer, and turkey. Black bear, mountain lion, and eagles are regularly seen.
Forest Park Ranch’s topography is made up of varying elevations from 6,800 to almost 8,000 feet and includes meadows, forest, ponds, and springs. There are 11.5 cfs of senior seasonal water rights, nine miles of crowned and enhanced main roads, and 31 miles of secondary roads. Picnic tables and fire pits have been strategically placed throughout the ranch for picnics and barbecues. Spectacular vistas include 10 different mountain peaks with elevations ranging from 11,289 to 12,769 feet.
Improvements on Forest Park Ranch include a luxurious 10,308-square-foot main home. The home offers 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, an apartment with its own entrance, several living areas, office, theater room, and a large second-floor balcony. The home is serviced by underground utilities, including six-inch waterline, which is a rarity on a mountain property. With too many upgrades on this home to list, a home tour is a must. The ranch offers two additional homes and a large workshop.
Forest Park Ranch is a short 15 minutes from Pagosa Springs. Pagosa Springs offers shopping, restaurants, an airport, hospital, and its famous hot springs. Wolf Creek Ski Area is located 31 miles from Pagosa Springs, offering some of the largest snowfall totals in the state. South of the ranch is the New Mexico border and Navajo State Park, providing a lake experience for great fishing and water sports. The whole area is filled with outdoor activities to enjoy.
The Forest Park Ranch with its meticulous kept acreage, 600 acres under habitat enhancement with exceptional restoration work, roads throughout the ranch, erosion mitigation, and no conservation easement creates an opportunity rarely seen in the ranching world today.
