JW Mountain Ranch is located in the beautiful Cuchara Valley in south central Colorado. The Cuchara Valley is surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest, comprised of a million plus acres. The Ranch captures incredible views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to its west and the Spanish Peaks to its south. The 4,823.95± deeded acre Ranch has vast ranges in its topography and elevations. The higher elevations are timbered and make for prime hunting, the lower elevations are used for the 300± acres of irrigated hay meadows and winter grazing. An impressive array of water resources can be found on the Ranch. Middle Creek flows year round through parts of the Ranch and Oak Creek crosses the entire Ranch, it being seasonal. Several other creeks and springs contribute water to the ranch as well. There are several ponds throughout the Ranch, two are natural ponds, one being called “Rock Lake” for its spectacular rock cliffs surrounding it. There are ten watering tanks, filled by a pipeline from the southwest to northeast corners of the Ranch. Additionally, there are four permitted but not adjudicated wells. Ranch improvements include two staff homes and a restored 1800’s homestead cabin. Operational facilities include two welded-pipe corrals, calving barn, hay barn, equipment shop, game-processing facility and horse paddocks.
