The 6,416 acre (5,056 deeded) Mosca Pass Ranch is located 15 miles west of Gardner, Colorado. This ranch enjoys a dramatic and scenic setting against a backdrop of the jagged 14,000+ foot peaks along the eastern base of the Sangre De Cristo Range, which is the southern portion of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. In addition to its unmatched views, Mosca Pass Ranch is distinguished by the fact that it offers a large block of private land that adjoins national forest and provides access to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The ranch is accessed by a county road which traverses through the ranch and dead ends at the Mosca Pass Trailhead on the San Isabel National Forest located just above, but beyond the western boundary of the ranch. An historic mountain thoroughfare, Mosca Pass Trail serves as an eastern access point to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The property has historically supported a livestock grazing operation, although the current owners have been more interested in conservation and have permitted limited grazing and no hunting during their tenure. Home to a resident population of mature mule deer, elk and pronghorn, the ranch currently serves as a sanctuary between the national forest and large neighboring ranches that are renowned for trophy big game hunting. Several hundred head of elk join the resident herds each fall, utilizing the property as a core wintering ground. The diverse landscape includes creek-lined meadows and lush valleys that transition into rolling rangelands before ascending west into the aspen groves and timbered slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Range. Water resources include over six miles of frontage along three small creeks, two ponds and ten adjudicated springs. The property has no buildings and is unencumbered by conservation easements. Tucked against the eastern base of the Sangre De Cristo Range, the ranch enjoys tremendous views of the Wet Mountains, the Sheep Mountains as well as prominent views of the nearby jagged peaks of Mt. Lindsey and Blanca Peak the eighth highest peak in the contiguous United States.
