Very rarely does a unique property like this one, become available ! This magnificent 2212 acre property, which is comprised of a 1300 acre deeded high fenced portion that has been in use since 1999 as a very profitable privately fenced elk hunting area permitted by the Dept. of Agriculture, and 912 acres of BLM lease that is connected on the outside of the high fenced portion. The 1300 acres are completely surrounded by an 8' high, high tensile strength fence which is an incredibly high quality type of construction traveling thru some very difficult terrain in order to make the fence almost undetectable from most locations on the ranch. The fence has a well constructed access road traveling the entire length of the perimeter running along the exterior of the fence. The Top Rail Ranch has been approved and granted a Special Use Permit by Fremont County Board of County Commissioners, whereas the permit allows the ranch to be used as a business for a Recreational Facility,to include Hunting, Fishing, Summer Camp, Shooting Facility, Photography, Equestrian, Habitat Studies, Ecology, Astronomy, Hiking Education, Rock Climbing and a variety of Winter activities.
The general topography of the ranch is composed of gentle, open meadows with abundant native grasses surrounded by beautiful aspen groves. It continues up into moderate to steep mountainous terrain with dramatic rocky outcroppings where bear caves are included, a mix of light and heavy dark timbered Ponderosa and Spruce areas for excellent wildlife habitat.
There are two creeks running through the ranch: Hall Gulch on the north side and Fear Creek running on the south side, named after homesteader, George Fear. There are 6 spring fed ponds, 4 stock ponds and many retention ponds scattered throughout the ranch to catch runoff and are just waiting to be stocked with trout.
Great care has been taken in the selection and construction of not only the fencing, but also the hunting lodge and hunting cabins on this property, to make it a one of a kind exclusive private retreat.
This ranch could be used as a private year round family residence, hunting retreat, business or corporate retreat or just an ideal private wilderness area for someone who enjoys the outdoors all to themselves with absolutely no public access. The property is a short drive from the world famous Royal Gorge Bridge and beautiful Canon City, Colorado, where the climate is known for being one of the most moderate climates in the State - which is the reason the world renowned Holy Cross Abbey Vineyard and Winery is located there along with many local orchards and organic farms. Canon City offers Fine Dining, Brew Pubs and lots of great shopping downtown. The outdoor activities abound in this area, from some of the Best Big Game Hunting in the State to World Class Trout Fishing, White Water Rafting, Golfing, Mountain Biking, Hiking, Kayaking, Snowmobiling and is very near some of the best Ski Areas in the State. Do not miss the once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of property in Colorado as magnificent as this.
