About this Ranch
Located on County Road 25 in the Willow Creek Drainage area sits 252± acres known as the Slater Ranch. The ranch is comprised of 6 surveyed buildable parcels of rolling hills with aspens, pines, and sage. One of the prime building sites sits at 9,000 feet giving you stunning views of the West Elks to the North, Mount Stewart, San Luis, Baldy Alto, and the Powderhorns to the south. An excellent well, electricity, and a storage shed are in place. The ranch has good cell phone reception. Road accesses to the north and south of the ranch are within ½ mile of year-round maintained roads. There are also two other access points to the ranch just as accessible but underdeveloped.
The ranch is within the borders of the highly desirable Game Management Unit 66. The property provides a home for Mule deer, migrating elk, and much more wildlife for excellent viewing opportunities. Recreational opportunities are boundless on and near the ranch, fishing on Blue Mesa Reservoir, Cebolla Creek, and Lake Fork of the Gunnison, hiking, biking, ATVing, and horseback riding right from the property or nearby. It’s truly a private outdoor sporting paradise. The towns of Gunnison, Montrose, and Lake City are near for amenities and shopping needs.
