923 acres Crested Butte, CO

Gunnison County Dave Harrigan and Hunter Harrigan Harrigan Land Company

Type: Acreage w/House 5400 SqFt

At Red Hawk Ranch, high in the West Elk Mountains near Crested Butte, Colorado, you'll not only be "away from it all", but also "above it all". This 923-acre wilderness ranch for sale boasts sweeping views of the magnificent Ohio Creek Valley that will be shared only by you and the eagles. If you're interested in having your nearest neighbors be elk, mule deer, black bears and lush meadows of wildflowers, Red Hawk Ranch is the wilderness hunting retreat of your dreams. The healthy subalpine forests and meadows that dominate Red Hawk Ranch create prime habitat for mule deer and elk that favor living just below treeline for much of the year. At an average elevation of about 10,000 feet, the property receives abundant moisture that feeds ten or more springs and ponds on the property, guaranteeing that animals won't need to travel away from the ranch to find water. Furthermore, the heavy stands of dark timber composed of spruce and fire, intermixed with meadows of lush native grasses and shrubs, meets the needs of wildlife for shelter and food. In short, Red Hawk Ranch is in the midst of high-country big game habitat at its finest. The hunting possibilities of Red Hawk Ranch are as plentiful as its alpine vistas. Large mule deer roam the property with regularity, and bucks have been taken here that score over 200 on the Boone and Crockett scale, topping out at 243. Impressive elk herds also frequent the ranch and the adjacent Gunnison National Forest, which nearly surrounds the property. The ranch qualifies for over-the-counter elk tags and landowner deer tags. With these assets in place, the prospects of operating Red Hawk Ranch as a private or commercial hunting retreat are outstanding. A massive 5400-square foot lodge serves as headquarters for this magnificent property. It includes four bedrooms, full kitchen, storage garage and a vaulted great room filled with trophy mounts. Spectacular high country views can be enjoyed from its large deck. The lodge is entirely off-gird, powered by a solar system with generator backup. Water comes from a gravity-feed system from a spring on the property. A barn and storage cabin are also present on the fully-fenced property. Hunting is the prime attraction of this property, but jeeping and hiking are natural fits in the summertime, too. Photographic opportunities abound, with great views of nearby Mount Whetstone, Carbon Peak, Mount Axtell, all of which rise in excess of 12,000 feet. Wildflower-lovers will literally have a field day here in the summer. World-renowned flyfishing opportunities exist on the Gunnison, East and Taylor Rivers, each within an hour's drive. The ranch is accessible by snowmobile in the winter, and snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ski touring are ideal ways to enjoy the solitude of winter. The downhill ski resort of Crested Butte is 50 minutes away, and the college town of Gunnison and its airport are 30 minutes away. In more ways than one, Red Hawk Ranch distinguishes itself above many mountain ranch properties. Contact Harrigan Land Company to learn more of why we believe this wilderness hunting retreat rises "high above the crowd."

Type: Residential

We started by investing in the land. A pristine Rocky Mountain river. Aspen groves. Wildflower meadows. Mountain panoramas. A setting perfect for all types of outdoor recreation year round: exceptional fly fishing, equestrian facilities, hiking, cross-country skiing. The result: an exclusive community of luxury vacation homes, the Reserve on the East River, a discreet development of 24 homesites nestled among 1,500 acres of mountain wilderness. Two miles of private access to the crystalline East River. Full-time property management. A lodge for socializing. Miles of trails winding into adjacent national forest land. Access to skiing, golf, restaurants, and shopping in nearby Crested Butte. Unspoiled. Unforgettable.The Reserve on the East River. It’s the beginning of a perfect day. Crisp morning air wafts through the back door as you eye the sparkling East River and size up your fishing prospects. Should you wake the family or slip away for a quick outing before breakfast? You gather the necessities: waders, boots and vest, your favorite 4-weight rod. Walking down to the bank, you hear the sounds of rippling water and songbirds, the moment enhanced by the utter seclusion of the setting. Reaching the bank, and with hardly a pause, you load the rod and send a #12 Elk Hair Caddis into a promising pool just shy of the overhanging bank. Shortly, a beautiful brown trout takes your fly. Later, you will return to this spot, family in tow. But for now the moment and the river are yours alone. A day’s outing on the mountain, headed out with day packs and hiking boots, you and your husband walk hand-in-hand as the children scamper ahead. You journey past the stables, where the caretaker waves as she saddles a orse. Climbing the slope, you glance back at the river as it winds through the landscape below. Butterflies and hummingbirds dart among the blooming wildflowers in the meadows. The air warms as the sun ascends the peak of Round Mountain. A trail leads into the shade of the adjacent national forest, a stand of aspen trees marking the boundary. The kids dart into the trees to find the perfect walking stick. A relaxing picnic lunch re-energizes you for the descent back home. You’ll return to this trail on another day, perhaps on snowshoes or cross-country skis. You leave the secluded confines of the Reserve and make the short drive to Crested Butte. The town’s Victorian charm takes you back to a simpler era. Children fill the playing fields and round the streets on bicycles. You stroll Elk Avenue, lined with boutiques and galleries, talk shop with a local fishing guide, and inspect the wares of resident artists. A menu hangs in front of a gourmet restaurant for your perusal. In the local pub, the barkeep pulls a pint of the master brewer’s latest creation, the perfect accompaniment to a hearty lunch. Heading home, you plan a quiet dinner and evening by the fire. Few properties offer the Reserve’s pristine beauty and recreational opportunities. Few communities provide the tranquility of a secluded Rocky Mountain homestead combined with the amenities of a nearby resort. Environmental stewardship is rare in real estate. Pinto Development has realized its commitment with the Reserve on the East River. Pinto Development’s dedication to quality and integrity ensures the lasting value of each unique home site. A legacy to pass on from generation to generation, the Reserve’s natural grandeur will endure.
