About this Ranch

Home » Listings » Ranches » Devils Canyon Ranch

Devils Canyon Ranch consists of 2,520± deeded acres and is backed into over 640± limited access BLM public acres. The property is nestled in Cherry Creek basin beneath the extraordinary skyline of the La Plata Mountain Range.

Neighboring the famous Louis Lamour Ranch, this remarkable holding is said to be the background to many Louis Lamour western novels, and when traveling through the ranch’s varied terrain from the deep black timber ridges, to the cool shadowed valley floors and oak-covered bluffs, you feel like you are walking through history if you’ve enjoyed these western novels.

Located in La Plata County, one of southern Colorado’s most desired counties and home to Durango Colorado, known as the gateway to some of Colorado’s top recreational opportunities. The ranch is benefited by convenient year-round access located off Hwy 160 and county maintained Cherry Creek Road. Improvements on the ranch include good road access and two well-located rustic off-grid hunting cabins.

The ranch is home to exceptional big game with a trifecta of wildlife habitat, terrain, water, and feed, providing a sanctuary for some of this region’s best big game. The varied terrain of heavy timber canyons, high grassland mesas, open hay meadows, and oak-covered plateaus, coupled with historic migration routes make this ranch home to some of the top regional Elk and Mule Deer herds, Turkey, Black Bears, and Mountain Lions. Due to the exceptional wildlife presence, the ranch has been preserved with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to maintain the ability to recreate, ranch, and enjoy future use of the property while protecting the wildlife sustainability.

With the Mesa Verde National Park and Menefee Mountain Wilderness Study Area to the west, the vast La Plata Mountain Range of 14,000 ft peaks and the San Juan National Forest to the north, and Purgatory Resort or Hesperus Ski Area both nearby, you will always have extraordinary places to explore. With over 300 days of annual sunshine, the angler will find the Animas River Valley a perfect paradise. The recreational opportunities in this area are never-ending.

Devils Canyon Ranch is greatly benefited by its close proximity to Durango, Colorado, for endless adventure and city amenities like great restaurants, theatre’s, medical care, shopping, and regional airport access.
