About this property

Eagle Canyon Ranch Eagle Canyon Ranch is a slice of Rocky Mountain paradise hidden in plain sight. Although only 1.5 hours from the Front Range metropolis of Colorado Springs and 3 hours from Denver, Eagle Canyon Ranch is shielded from the urban bustle by the Wet Mountain Range to the east and the legendary Sangre de Cristo Range to the west. As a result, Eagle Canyon remains an unspoiled place of respite and refuge where the rugged West still reigns. Eagle Canyon Ranch is a well-blocked parcel encompassing 2,369 acres at an elevation of about 8000 feet, about 10 miles northeast of the "twin cities" of Westcliffe and Silver Cliff. One of the largest remaining parcels in Custer County, Eagle Canyon Ranch brims with scenic beauty created by an ever-changing combination of granite outcroppings, small meadows and forests of pinion pine, juniper and spruce and fir. Mountain views abound, of both the Sangre de Cristos, reaching far above treeline at over 14,000 feet, and the nearer forested peaks of the Wet Mountains. Presently undeveloped, the ranch is perfectly situated for a variety of recreational activities. Healthy mule deer and elk herds roam through the ranch itself and on the bordering BLM land, including the Upper Grape Creek Wilderness Area. As a draw only unit for both deer and elk, Unit 69 holds many trophies of both species. Mountain lion and black bear are also found in the area. Grape Creek flows just west of the ranch, and miles of public fishing for 10- to 14-inch brown and rainbow trout are available on this "sleeper stream" by only a short 4WD trip from the ranch. Lake anglers will appreciate the waters of Deweese Reservoir, only a few miles upstream, with its combination of trout, smallmouth bass and huge tiger muskies. Eagle Canyon Ranch can also serve as a headquarters for mountain biking and horseback riding, both on and off the ranch property, OHVing, and even rock climbing on scores of granite outcrops on the property. Mountaineers will find plenty of summits in the Sangre de Cristos, including the famed Fourteeners of Crestone Peak, Crestone Needle and Humboldt Peak, just a few miles away. Photographers will discover endless photo opportunities every season of the year, and the area's dark skies are internationally recognized as some of the best in the world for astronomical observations. Visionary owners will delight in several amazing building sites on the ranch, each with remarkable views and precious privacy. Although no power is on the ranch, it is nearby.
