About this Ranch
Welcome to Top of the World Ranch, a once-in-a-lifetime 2,089± acre Western Colorado ranch situated between the charming towns of Montrose and Gunnison. This expansive ranch boasts over 2± miles of highway frontage, offering unparalleled access to modern-day amenities while providing an oasis of natural beauty and tranquility.
Appropriately named, Top of the World Ranch offers true Mountain West views of the San Juan Mountains. Two live water streams meander the property, creating an ideal habitat that includes mature aspens, spruce, ponderosa pines, and pristine alpine meadows. This ecosystem is a magnet for big game who call the ranch home year-round, including elk, deer, bears, turkeys, and moose. The neighboring Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park allows for rarer big game, such as Shiras Moose and Big Horn Sheep, to cross back and forth through the ranch's borders and the Black Canyon.
In addition to the streams, large ponds are dispersed throughout the property, providing plenty of water for livestock, while multiple drainages serve as travel corridors and cover for the thriving wildlife population. Currently, there is a seasonal year to year grazing lease that is carefully managed for cattle and wildlife that lives on the ranch.
Water, the lifeblood of any ranch, is abundantly available here, with numerous springs and a deep well for multiple dwellings. The ranch also receives several feet of snow in early spring, replenishing the grounds and adding to its natural charm.
For the avid hunter, the ranch is in GMU 64, an over-the-counter unit, and the southern border of the ranch touches both GMU 65 and GMU 66, all with exceptional hunting opportunities. With vast acreage, ample water sources, and diverse wildlife, your hunting dreams are within reach.
The ranch features a meticulously maintained year-round access road system, ideal for trucks and UTVs, allowing you to explore every corner of this extensive property. Beyond the ranch's boundaries, the adventure continues as the ranch touches Curecanti National Recreation Area and BLM lands, offering both privacy and opportunities for outdoor adventures. Adventurists will appreciate the ranch's proximity to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and the Blue Mesa Reservoir, known for record-breaking lake trout and excellent ice fishing.
The hard work has been done as the ranch is fully surveyed and fenced, providing you peace of mind and security. Cabins and utilities are already in place, making your dream Colorado ranch lifestyle easier than ever. This is truly a turnkey property.
One of the most notable features of this property is its easy accessibility to both Montrose and Gunnison, which include public and private airports, as well as shopping, entertainment, and hospitals.
