Property Description

Offered for the first time in over 70 years and sharing a 1.5 mile border with the Routt National Forest, Copper Ridge Ranch, sits 300 hundred feet above the valley floor at the base of Copper Ridge offering vast, unabated views across the Yampa Valley. Only three miles north of Steamboat Springs, with end of road privacy, this 360 acre Ranch serves as a wildlife haven, conserved for its elk habitat, but also home to numerous other species (just watch the video!) Immerse yourself in nature right out your backdoor, with direct access to over 1.4 million acres of national forest. Approximately half of the property is a Brushy Loam range located on the south slopes and is dominated by oak brush, serviceberry, snowberry and chokecherry. The remainder of the property is an Aspen/Subalpine fir plant community that is located on the north end of the property boarding the national forest. The Seller’s family purchased the land in 1942, then consisting of 1300 acres. The family operated a cattle and outfitting business. Over the years, the ranch was home to four generations, all with deep roots in agriculture and the community. Through the generations, the ranch has been divided amongst the family, and Copper Ridge Ranch stands as one of the few remaining parcels. in the late 1990’s, the family sought to protect the integrity of the ranch and the wildlife that had supported the family for decades. With the help of the Yampa Valley Land Trust, now Colorado Cattlemen’s Association Land Trust, the ranch was placed into conservation easement, providing a permanent habit and wintering grounds safe from future subdivision and development. Today the ranch stands ready to implant your vision into the existing home or restart within the 20 acre building envelope upon which to find that perfect spot, setting the stage for a legacy handed down for generations to come.
