The Collard Ranch consists of approximately 1,860 lush acres with 360-degree views and approximately 5 miles of the Upper Tarryall Creek fishery. The fishery is part of the South Platte River headwaters and is the heart and soul of this sporting paradise which appeals to big game hunters, wing shooters and anglers. Being near the origin of this drainage, the water in Upper Tarryall Creek is clean and cold which supports an incredibly healthy riparian corridor. The diversity and volume of aquatic insects in the fishery is astounding and it greatly benefits the trout that reside in the creek. Because the riparian corridor is so healthy and includes a series of beaver ponds, a variety of other wild game enjoy this well-watered sanctuary. Elk, Pronghorn Antelope, Mule Deer, Bear, water foul and birds of prey enjoy the benefit of the ranch year-round. The ranch features three functional homes ranging from 3 to 5 bedrooms each. There are multiple other home sites and power strung throughout the ranch. The signature of the ranch setting it apart from almost any other offering is its thirty to fifty foot bluffs which stand guard on either side of the creek offering privacy, protection from the elements and serenity to the creek bottom. The "bottom" offers 360-degree views of Lost Park National Wilderness on the east, the Kenosha Mountains on the north and then a string of icons lying within the Mosquito Mountain range including Mt. Boreas, the ever-prominent Mt. Silverheels at 13,823 feet and one of Colorado’s 58 famous “14ers”, Mount Sherman at 14,042 feet. Fly fishing and big game hunting on this kind of ranch against the ranch’s backdrop offers an iconic Colorado experience. The purchase includes a section of State of Colorado public lands leased for grazing. The ranch is unencumbered by any meaningful access or conservation easement. Significant income opportunities exist including grazing, fishing lease and residential tenant income.
